    Well i used to overclock heaps (and only on out of warranty items) but now days I am upgrading before i run out of warranty because they bring out bigger better faster stronger every 3 months Any one else have this problem or are you all rich enough to blow things up and just buy new ones?

    Warranties mean little to me. If something dies, I contact the manufacturer anyway. But I haven't had any real problems (yet) and don't really plan to. I have found that if you're careful, it really isn't that easy to blow up your components. :)

    You would need to do some serious OCing to fry something. I mean even if you did OC too much your comp would refuse to boot. I know people have had things break on them, but that's part of OC'ing.
    New Sig soon, old one was way outdated.

    I havn't broken anythin' yet with overclockin' but from the examples that ppl sent me to fix it's usually something pretty god damn stupid that causes that. ;)
