Like is there any way that by the time I'll have a functioning pc i won't be complete dog-shit? P. S I'm a demo main. Ik this souns specific as hell, but maybe some of you have experienced something like this and have some tips to keep your hands and mind in shape

First your screen dies at the beginning of season 31. Now your PC dies in the end of season 31. How's it going?

I got a weird desire of drowning myself/quitting the game forever when it happened lol. Guess i need to upgrade my gears from "stone age" to "iron age"

Mamzzfunhaver1998How did it dieRam stick overheated to the point of melting and got all over the motherboard. Idk how, i just have a real shit pc.

1. I need to see this.
2. Best case it's just the stick that melted that's broken.
2nd best case the stick and the mobo are fucked.
But either way the rest should still be good to go, although I'm not sure if you should trust the PSU.
So we absolutely need pics, you need to salvage all parts that can be salvaged and then it's just a matter of getting a new (used) mobo from somewhere.
I mean what were the specs? If it's a few years old I'm sure I can find a shitty used mobo for 30€ or something like that and send it to you as Christmas present in exchange for photos of the melted RAM (I really need those pictures).

gemmhoiw the FUCK does ram just melt

It doesn't. Ram doesn't get enough current to cause it to melt (like 2 watts). So unless his PSU or mobo castistophicly failed im calling BS.

Maybe there was some kind of material on the ram and it melted off. Did you try to put the RAM into the PC using glue when you were building it?

Watts are not a unit of current.
Also this is about temperature. Melting plastic isn't that hard. You just can't have any airflow, then you create a localized hotspot and let the shitty useless plastic heatspreader slowly melt away for weeks until it finally fucks something up.

Also your spelling failed "castistophicly". It's actually so uniquely fucked up that it's the only result on google. In other words you fucked it up harder than anyone ever has before.

I'm pretty sure there wasn't anything on it, and I'm afraid it was caused by me overclocking it to get an fps boost. It probably couldn't handle it

Holy shit screwball how on earth did you arrive at "castistophicly", I know it's a difficult word and many might spell it as "catistrophiclly" or "catastrophiclly" but castistophicly? What a catastrophe.
