The worst thing happened

#1The SockPosted 8/20/2014 6:56:16 PM(edited)
My new i5-2500 processor came in today. I installed it (it was an upgrade), and guess what happened? It bricked my video card. The video card I bought last Christmas is dead. Fml.

I have no idea how that happened. :(

Oh man, I wish I knew. I guess something must've shorted out on my video card. I was extremely careful too.

Did you ground yourself, not touch the contacts on the bottom of the GPU, work in a brightly lit location with no carpet, not rub balloons on your head or other such techniques for avoiding ESD?

Yup. Though the room did have carpet.

The problem was that only a select number of processors are compatible with my mobo. The i5-2500 was the best one I could find within my budget.
