I just opened my case. My mobo and cpu haven't arrived yet, so I obviously wasn't building. I opened the small box that came inside the case, and it had the metal harddrive adaptors. It came wrapped in a paper that said not to open until ready to build. It said something about the metal being corrosive. I had already opened it, but i repacked it. Is this something I really need to worry about? Also, although I bought an antistatic mat and wrist, I didn't use those when I was opening the case because I thought there were no electronics to harm in a case like there are in a mobo. Was I wrong in this?
Sorry if I sound very confusing. Can someone please tell me how to attach pictures to posts?
but what about the corrosive metal warning on the hard drive adaptors?
I don't see why anything should be corrosive... There are not many things that are so corrosive in cases that they are dangerous. Also, I don't see how placing it in after the build could make a difference.
