What id like to do is take a lighter (or torch!) and just kinda melt everything around a (not all) major parts. Im not sure if ram overheats, because it would be fun there. But take the video card socket, and just heat it up like no other. And that would do it

Although.. Gently misting it while its running might prove to be fun.

Mess with the jumpers I caused a harddrive to fry that way and sparks came out

BTW, burning silicon is toxic. So do it outside.

FYI, bad RAM will cause that sort of thing.
