Has a PC game ever blew up your PC?

Recommended Posts

Some PC games out there can be very intensive on some PCs. Depending on if you have a good graphics card or not. Have you ever had a game so powerful, that it destroyed your PC in the process? Maybe you played the game too long, or your PC could never handle it to begin with. Has this ever happened to you? 

I do worry about it, but I feel as long as I take care of my PC it'll be fine.

I've had some instances of PC's shutting down due to thermals but they've always worked again after allowing them to cool down.  On a completely unrelated note dont play a graphically intensive game on a hot day with the front fans off and the front panel door closed...  just a general tip... never happend to me... 😳

Another thing that didn't happen to me was the cooling fan for the CPU coming loose then the CPU dying. It obviously didn't explode... this other person's computer, but it was still annoying as hell...  for this person...that wasn't me.

 

The point is a computer won't explode if it's pushed to hard, it'll just shut down. There's too many failsafes in things these days for something electrical blowing up to be realistically possible.

Aren't PCs designed to have some sort of safety shut-down if they can't handle something, rather than blowing up. That's what I've heard anyway. I'd be very concerned if my PC had a risk of blowing up haha.
