post #21 of 35
Its a shame you ordered already. Was about to do you a similar build for below 600.

Thanks for all the info.

I think it's probably better to have it ordered because otherwise I'll just keep on messing around with it until next year

By the way, I'll be doing the installing on a wooden kitchen worktop which is off the ground, but I presume even if I plug the power into any socket it will still get rid of static in the same way?

Also, as I'm installing a new PSU as well, so should I do that first and use it for grounding myself or just use the one currently in my case and swap them at the end?

Any socket will work for getting rid of static as long as the switch on the PSU is off.
If your installing a new PSU it's best to do that first and use that for grounding.

The height of the worktop is irrelevant - what is important is the electrical connection to ground (or earth, or whatever else you want to refer to it as). Basically you need to have some contact to something that is earthed - and the easiest way to do that is to plug in the PSU to an earthed socket. You could also touch an unpainted water or central heating pipe as they need to be earthed too.

Well I was hoping to have it delivered by today so I'd be ready to upgrade at the weekend, but got an email from scan saying it's been delayed because of unexpected stock volumes in warehouse? Next weekend it is then

ask for a delivery refund to make up for the delay

As it's standard delivery and was only estimated delivery for Thursday, would I even be able to get a refund?

worth a shot - if it's delayed from when they said you should have it then you deserve a little something back. Never hurts to ask - and you're in a pretty good bargaining position considering how much you just spent with them.

Give Scan a quick call, on my last order they were out of stock of the CPU cooler I wanted, so they just upgraded me to a better one for free and sent it the same day.
