Building a PC is supposed to be a magical experience. All of your parts arrive on time, you take an afternoon to unwrap and assemble everything and then, with glorious satisfaction, you press the power button and hear your new creation whir to life. But sometimes building a PC can be harrowing. I'm not talking about having some dead-on-arrival RAM either, I'm talking true horror as pins bend and PSUs fry components.

We asked our community to share their worst horror stories and have gathered our favorites for you to read and enjoy. But be warned, if you're about to build a PC and don't have the budget for some replacement parts should you make a grave mistake, read these stories with caution.
