keep the case off carpet and don't stand on carpet while working with ESD sensitive components
for the most part just by touching the case while your working on the insides with no strap or gloves is sufficient to ground yourself to prevent static
but to be safe i wear ESD safe gloves when i work on my PC
mats really not necessary unless you need to lay things on it like a GPU or ram, things like that
I build on a sheet of anti-static foam.
well iv watched some videos and they all said if you touch the grounded case your fine just don't move around well my house always has ppl in it and lots of carpet so me trusting my self to remember to touch the case/ps and all that, ya wont happen lol.
how are these products don't know if ill get the mat but ill pick up a wrist strap
