UPS just destroyed this custom built Origin PC
He was able to salvage the CPU, HDD and RAM. All other parts are destroyed.
Sad news for our fallen brethren right there. His custom-built Origin PC was allegedly mishandled by the United Parcel Service (UPS), when it was shipped from his former location to States for the purpose of moving.
The destroyed PC has this specs:
• Intel i7 5960k CPU
• EVGA GTX 980 in SLI
• 32GB RAM
• ASUS ROG RAMPAGE MOTHERBOARD
According to the one who posted this on Imgur, it was his friends’ PC which was destroyed by the said courier service.
He also added that his friend didn’t have a way to drain it since he couldn’t use the computer and pump at the same time.
Also, United Parcel Service (UPS) shipped this PC. He just simply brought it to the store, and they packaged it for him. If he packaged it himself he wouldn’t have been able to get insurance over $100. This was not shipped FROM Origin PC, but from his previous address to his new one.

The story just got criticized by almost every PC enthusiast out there who see the post on Imgur. However, the problem behind shipping pre-built PC’s could have been prevented if you might have declared the package as “fragile” and tried draining all the liquids before entrusting them to your chosen courier service.
Sad news for today, our friends.
