radiator, piping, metal things will do. Although in the past I had some discharges it was due to some type of fabric I was wearing along with the carpet, after I got rid of the fabric I never zapped again wink.gif

Who here has modded the front panel to accept three 120mm fans?

I'm planning on doing the operation over the weekend and I'd like advice as to what I'll need in terms of extra materials, and if there are any roadblocks or problems you had when doing it.

You can grab what they call an "ESD" strap that you place onto your wrist and attach to the case. My apartment is all carpet also, all I really do is place a piece of cardboard on the floor where Ill be working. Most important thing I guess, is occasionally touch your case every now and then to discharge any buildup you might have.

All this is good advice, really as long as u touch something often, case, pipe, etc... And don't wear socks, sweatpants, you should be good. I have built several systems on carpet as my old house was all carpet and have never fried anything.

The cardboard is an interesting idea Heruur, I will have to use that one next time! thumb.gif

Really anything you can do to minimize static is good, I've never used an ESD strap but it's pretty much your best bet if your worried about static.

SortOfGrim's right, since anything works, but I personally like the radiator idea. I have all-carpets as well, and I ground myself to the radiator because I know it's a metalic structure that runs through the wall and is well grounded, instead of just a lamp or bit of scrap metal.

good point, the more "grounded" your ground source the better thumb.gif

His name escapes me at the moment but I know one user over here built a HAF XB which he dubbed the "TriClops" which had a triple 120mm (360) rad in the front. I'm sure you could search the thread for "TriClops" or something like that and get in touch with him!
