I can't say I am an extreme overclocker, but I do it with every new piece of hardware I get. I have however, never fried anything.

What about you guys? Did you ever go past the point of no return?

i have NOT fried anything even though I put my CPU at -55C and had to fight against condensation for a few years.

I blew up a power supply. As in BOOM, black smoke, and burst capacitors the size of dcell battaries

Never fried anything on any of my computers.
It's really hard to do as long as you know what you are doing.

I O/C my vidcards to the point of lock-ups, snowing, etc. then I throttle back some and leave it at that. I never fried one though.

Would such to fry an expensive card :/. I am not rich like you guys, so I tend to only overclock slightly :p

At first, I thought you are talkin about FOOD, then I see "overclocking".

Not rich, just stupid. As IceWolf said, you be OK if you know what you doing. And he meant, do your research by reading around and learn from others. They usually post their o/c results. If you venture, start low then crank it up little by little. Then when it starts locking up, crank it back down. If you feel uncomfortable, just don't do it and be happy and safe.
