Have finally got all the components together that I will be using However can't get a static wrist strap localy my question is how do I put my unit together safely without one?Would really be a drag screwing something up with a static charge.Thanks
I built my rig without a static band and didn't have a problem. Only thing you need to do is make sure you ground yourself before touching anything.
I suggest you assemble your computer naked to avoid any static that may build up on your clothing. =P
Didn't really need that visual HaHaHA.
Static can also build up on bare skin too HAHA
You can always assemble the bits in the shower. The water will ground you. - LOL
Steer clear of nylon carpets. And don't stroke the cat :)
Put your PSU and mobo in first, and plug it in. The PC is now grounded and touching it will get rid of all your static charge.
Thanks for all the great advice if I change my user name to Fried you will know why wish me luck.
