Building/Modding new computer/1st time Tags: New Build Modding Systems Last response: April 15, 2010 7:21 AM in Systems Share xxenergyxx April 15, 2010 4:25:18 AM Hey guys, modding my intel core 2 quad/ati radeon 4890/4gb ddr2/750w corsair/500gb western digital 7200rpm system. I just puchased a AMD phenom x4 II 965/ASUS m479UTD EVO/ and 4gb DDR3 1600 and Coolermaster RC690 case. When installing these parts on top of my desktop, is a anti-static wrist strap connect to my pc chassis and me enough to prevent ESD? Please let me know, thanks More about : building modding computer 1st time redblade_88 April 15, 2010 5:57:57 AM Yes its enough to prevent ESD, but if you can find better grounding such as an exposed pipe etc.. you'll feel a lot safer soundefx April 15, 2010 6:05:18 AM That is enough, but remember not to walk around in socks on the carpet. You have no idea the amount of times I see people play it safe, but they are in socks on the carpet. Related resources Booting a new build for the first time. - Forum New PC Build time!
