I've learned my lessons since and this year I'm inclined to put a bridle on my avarice for free megahertz! As a self-inflicted punishment, this time around I'll undervolt every component in my computer. To achieve this, I've to stoop to some new lows as far as temperatures are concerned but that's part of the penance! I've also to put together couple of builds for my friends and any extreme benchmarking or off-limit OC'ing that I do during this time, will be done strictly on those rigs. I know these are very drastic measures but you need not worry as we enthusiast are accustomed to such acts of self-sacrifice; this is what makes us so special! Never mind whose silicon it's that got burnt as long as you get to read all the gory details here at Technoprozium. After all this is the season to be jolly!
Merry Christmas and a happy new year :)
