What's wrong with preventing your rig from assploding

Yes, doing both is a bit OTT. But wear a wrist band and you will be fine.



I've got the exact same one and it works great. You only need one
Thanks, I've put it on my order list.

That's all, thanks everyone! I love these fast replies.

it's not just a bracelet but rather a band taht goes around your wrist and then grounds out to your case I believe.

some use them others don't. personal choice thing. myself I don'ot but then again my computer is on the flor and so I just tip it on it's side being I'm usually barefoot I keep my foot up against the back of the computer. sounds gross I know but it keeps me from creating static

shouldn't cause you to spark when grabing a component outside of the case already as your body is grounded out unless the object itself has a very high potential in it which by all means it shouldn't

The memories.

That chair has a leg missing (obviously) and it was the most awesome chair ever Until our 6ft 7" mate jumped on it.

It was from my mates old house. More like a party house. Shame we had to leave it behind

EDIT: Yea as RX7 said, it simply attaches to your wrist and then hook the crocodile clip to something metal. I use my case because it is close to were i am working. And like stated, it won't shock anything inside or outside the case. you are providing a ground and it will always take the path of least resistance, it is easier to go through the case than it is to go through the air.

Are you asking this because of the pictures that were in that Maximum PC build a while back where the builder was wearing blue gloves?

If so then the builder and author of that article responded to questions about the gloves the next month by saying that the photographer simply asked him to wear the gloves for some reason...not for static or something.

No, I've asked because static does exists and sometimes even with a little of it, you'll destroy the entire processor, etc.
I want to be safe than sorry.

Yeah, I know static exists as I once fried a mobo...I just meant specifically about the gloves as opposed to other anti-static measures.
