Basically it's this I just used wiring from around the house.

Wrist straps are the dumbest contraptions I have seen. It allows a greater circuit of flow for electrons.... thats BAD.

I would rather resist electron flow and get a burn mark on my arm than have it go through my body and kill me.

Those are for discharging electricity from your body before touching stuff.... and all u need to do for that is touch a large metallic object like a case.....

This can be Done But Remember:

-ONLY do one wire at a time cause if you cross the wrong wires on accident, it will set alot of resistance and maybe fry a capacitor.
-Those capacitors hold charge for a long time, so unplug it and wait at least a week.
-If you have a Multimeter that is a major plus. I would recommend one working on anything electrical.
-Learn how to solder first you don't want a connector to pop off and then touch the case and fry everything on accident.
-Use proper connectors, and make sure the female end is on the end of the PSU, just in case if a screw or something drops on the connector it won't transfer charge
-Be careful
-Take Your Time
-Use heat Shrink! Not Just electrical tape (can be found at Home Depot, probally gauge 14-18 will work)

Be safe, and have fun

Please people... no suggest if you don't know....

Duckie I do know, that's why in an earlier post I told him to put it on the wrist, of the hand he would use. That stops the flow of electricity across the chest.

I'd be careful and just bake sure all the juice is out before giving it a try. I'd also use a older PSU first to try it out.

That is exactly what the strap is supposed to do. The problem with your train of thought is it depends on what portion of you is ground. If it is the other hand the electricity will travel across the chest, hitting the heart. That is bad, I've seen the results of that. You want to direct the flow away from there.

Think of electricity like water going down a hill, it takes the path of least resistance. You can think it's a bad idea all you want, it's proper electrical safety.

Wrist straps are a BAD IDEA to wear when working on PSU's (or CRT monitors). Just re-read duckie's post . I use my wriststrap everytime I'm inside my computer. But the instant I open something and see HUGE capacitors (stereo system, PSU, CRT monitor, etc.)...I always take that wriststrap right off. Much safer that way.

However just doing regular tinkering inside your case, a wriststrap is an excellent idea .

Yeah, the wrist strap is a great insurance. But most components, with the exception of RAM, are decently tolerant to shock.
