Default Fried motherboard?

Hi evry1, I was just wondering what the best way to fry a motherboard would be ? I thought about using mains but wouldnt that trip and blow fuses? All ideas appreciated. Thanks, James.

We had a power surge last week and it fried the onboard graphics and seems all PCI sockets so it wont display anything. I just want to finish it off so we can claim for it, its no use as it is!

Its raining like hell down here in cornwall, should I just leave it outside for the night?

Poking screwdrivers around in some PCI and AGP slots is my favourite method. AGP are better than PCI for doing this as well.

Keep easy access to the PS on, as some motherboards will auto shutoff. Also, this may cause smoke and small fires, and the smoke really stinks.

Haha, rub it on carpet, both sides, poke magnets all over it, then..

Dont make any physical damage, the insurance companies usually check them..

That shouldnt fry computers at that setting if your in a 110 volt enviroment. Should just cause them to not power up right.
