Wait t'il I tell you this:
My buddy and I were doing some drifting on an abandoned road, and all of a sudden, I come next to a black thing lying there.
It's a PC...submerged in snow. The system looked in horrible condition and was missing it's front door panel.
I'm not giving up on that, that's for sure. So there I go, take it home, try it out, and it won't start. PSUs fine, but not the board.
So I let it rest for 2 weeks, and give it a shot before it meets the wall, and to my suprise, it works. So, next thing is that I put all peripherals back and the thing...POSTS!
A submerged computer in snow, was fully restored, less a door.
All it needed was a CPU clip, since the other one broke, leaving the fan hanging by a tie wrap. It now works flawlessly, and it's sitting in my computer parking.
512MB RAM (I added)
80GB HDD (I added)
