ESD when working in case?

So I recently was touching stuff inside my case, no PSU installed, just motherboard and cpu installed.

I forgot to use a ESD arm wrist couple of times, now I wonder if the motherboard/cpu can have gotten ESD damage?

  1. Unlikely.

    Unless you wear silk socks and rub around on a wool carpet, ESD is just not a big deal in my experience. I've built hundreds of computers and upgraded far more and never worn a strap -- although I am careful to ground myself by touching grounded objects.
  2. Yep. There shouldn't be any problems. I'd advise you do generally not do builds above carpet, but otherwise don't worry about it.
