I need to know if the surface im about to build my new computer on is ok. I have all my parts in my computer room on the ground which is carpet i have the anti static wrist strap and a plug to put the psu to ground my case. Is it ok to work on the carpet in the room. Im also wearing just a t shirt and gym shorts is that ok. This may sound noobish to some of you but i don't know much.
Be very,very,careful on a carpet,sitting on the carpet you are a conductor,put on some clothes and shoes preferably rubber soled,just moving against the carpet can and will build up a static charge, OR,,, if you must/have to sit on the carpet,,spread some newspaper or something underneath you and your components,at no time must your body come into contact/brush/rub,,on the carpet,,especially if your parts are new you can plug in your psu leaving it unconnected to the mobo until you are ready and finished installing everything then touching the case will ground you but the above regarding isolation from the carpet still applies,REMEMBER you can never be too careful with new components once they have been burned in then it's no'ther can o'worms...:>)
Anti static wrist belt with a good connection should be OK. Just be sure to take a little breaks and before get back to work, touch to something that is connected into ground (0) (will purge static energy).
But to be sure, better be naked standing with toes in the kitchen table and use shoulder-long rubber gloves, latex high-heels and Batman hood. Just gotta watch out for Joker with a sweater! lol
