I get shock if...? A PSU question.. - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Look, just dont do what i do and you'll be fine (i havnt been shocked tho)

1. If i hav a metal ruler and im measuring things in the case while the computer is on, U dont do it.

2. If i decide to play with the fans while computer is on, U dont do it

3. If i change PSU's without letting it discharge properly, U dont do it.

4. If i play with the jumpers on the mobo while the computer is on, U dont do it.

5. If i rip a heatsink off while the computer is on, U dont do it.

Follow the opposite of these 5 steps and u will survive

LOL.... Funny post.

Ground yourself to discharge STATIC electricity. But don't ground yourself when handling electricity because you will shock yourself (your body will be the resistor between the source of energy and the ground.)

Just use one of those handheld PSU tester to drain the caps in the PSU.

If you don't have one of those, just yank the plug on the PSU while there's a load on it (like go into the BIOS and pull the power cord). The load will drain the caps.

And then, while the PSU is open, don't bridge the contacts of the primary cap together with your screwdriver.

Oh.. and the plastic shield underneath the PCB is there for a REASON.

Don't lick the caps with your tongue BTW. That can kill you.

Be very careful. Depending on the power of your PSU you could get a nasty shock which is dangerous to anyone regardless of the size of it. Even the smallest shock can mess with the natural electrical signals that keep your heart going and can put them out of time..
