Grain of rice for thermal paste!?!?!? I've been building PCs for like a decade and I've always done a pea sized amount. Everything I've ever heard (Youtube, etc) has said the same thing. Have I been applying "too much" all this time? (I've NEVER had issues, mind you. And I'm even running an 8700K at 5GHz with no problems)

If you used distilled water it would have worked but because tap water has other stuff in it that’s conductive there was most likely a short circuit some where

Um, magnets can brick a hard drive, but pc components like cpu, gpu, ram not so much, when the gpu stopped it was probably because you shorted it with the magnet by touching the soldering points.

hard drives store data using a magnetic coat on a spinning disk, using a magnet can demagnetize the coat or magnetize it in the wrong areas and therefore stop it from working

Think about it. Magnets are pretty much the sticks and stones version of the attack used to destroy hardware and software data. EMP on the other hand is used much more and is 1000x as effective, being able to hit hundreds of server racks, impacting major networks, and millions of devices piggybacking them as a lifeline for daily use. TL;DR - If it has "magnet/magnetic" in it, it serves a danger to consumer technology everywhere.

When I've built PCs in the past, all i do is plug the power supply into the wall and touch the outside of it. The metal case is connected to ground, so if you touch it any static electricity you've built up will go to ground. Do this every time before you touch your components after walking around. Then you never risk frying anything. Edit: This works even if your power supply is outside your case, but as soon as it's in the case of your PC you can just touch the metal of your PC case, since that's now also connected to ground. The power supply doesn't have to be turned on for it to be grounded either.

Magnets will kill a hard drive.... that's a given. That's all they'll kill. They won't kill your GPU, CPU, RAM, or motherboard (Unless maybe you drop the magnet on the aforementioned hardware). The only reason anything happened with the magnet when you "tested it" on the GPU is because it STUCK to the GPU. And most magnets, especially neodymium, are coated in nickel. Which, while not NEARLY as conductive as copper or gold, is still conductive. All you did was answer the question nobody needed to ask. YES, putting metal on the back of a bare PCB will short something out and possibly kill it.

Im an electrician, and last time i checked, if you had 50,000 volts going through that small of a conductor. You would not only fry the computer, but the conductor would instantly liquify, creating molten copper and then no longer function. You would have an arc blast that would stretch in all directions that a circuit could be made. But what do i know. (Ps the voltage is low, which is why it wouldn’t melt, but he wont find any results, because as a human with that low amount of output power cant even feel it.) he is basically just shining a light on the ram.

I don't think it was the magnetism that shut the GPU off, it was because it would have shorted a lot of different components on the PCB, as the magnet is conductive. For the hard drive that makes sense, I don't think its the moving parts that permanently die, they would just stop moving freezing the computer. What you would need to worry about is the magnets erasing data because that is how the data is written and read by using magnetic fields

As long as the components aren't energized, you technically can wash them without harm. I remember washing a non-working bug infested PS3 that I bought for $16, with soap and water, and it worked after I applied new thermal paste and pads. Of course, I initially dried it with forced air and then let it sit for a couple hours.

Washing PC components in a dishwasher was really intended for retro components that had electrolytic cap leak on it. Nobody in their right mind would wash a Ryzen board or a modern Intel board. It is documented online that a dishwasher can aid in removing the cap juice, although you still have to do manual cleaning/prep prior.

These tasers don’t actually output millions of volts... That’s false advertising, because its almost impossible to measure thousands of volts with a voltmeter, the same way its very hard to measure the actual capacity of a battery, so manufacturers (especially cheap Chinese products) will take advantage of this to mislead people and give totally false information so that they buy the product. For taser voltage, it comes down to the distance between the two electrodes (and factors like air density, temperature and moisture) but it will give you about ten thousand volts for a one-centimeter gap. In a very basic way to explain it, tasers work by very quickly charging a capacitor until it discharges itself through the air between the anode and cathode, over and over multiple times per second. The larger the gap, the larger the voltage. Can’t go around that. Smaller gap = smaller voltage. Increasing the gap size will increase the voltage, until internal components will short out first and kill the taser. A taser with millions of volts would need a gap of more than a foot between the two electrodes. Now that is different from a Tesla coil which can output continuous high voltage (a lot higher voltage than a taser, at lower current of course) but that’s another story. It’s very difficult to electrocute someone or something with a Tesla coil compared to a taser, so less useful than a Taser. The tesla coil works by ionizing the air around it until electrons can flow freely through that air. But when introducing other things, they will actually have higher capacitance then the ionized air thus not become a path of lower resistance and almost no current will go through it. The taser however, will electrocute whatever has less resistance than that air gap, which is most things except glass and ceramic. The reason is that it doesn’t continually keep the air ionized between the electrodes. Anyways, tasers usually output between 5,000 and 25,000 volts, and that’s the end of it.
