If you're doing this on carpet scrap the sneakers and go barefoot.

I really wouldn't be to worried about static. I've never had a problem and I've never heard of anyone killing a component from static...

I got some cheap RAM for my buddy and he left one of the DIMMs in a cup-holder in his car, spilled coffee on it and dropped in on the the carpeted floor of his house then accidentally stepped on it before he put it in his rig (I was there for all this). I was sure it would be dead, but the damn stick works just fine.

Obviously that's an extreme example, but I really wouldn't worried about wearing gloves while working on your rig. It's not necessary.
At long last...

Or stand in your sink. That'll will ground you very well.

I can top that. A girl at my school flung a stick of RAM I brought to school to trade down the hall. It put a dent in the wall but it ran just fine.

This stuff has to be pretty sturdy. Otherwise you wouldn't be able to ship it.

Dont wear gloves. Dont worry. Your best bet is take the computer to a room w/o carpet if your that worried. Make sure to grab an unpainted part of the case just for a second to get rid of any buildup you have. Wear regular rubber sole shoes. Then half at it and have a good time.

You'll love the feeling of accomplishment when you first fire it up and see Windows


Components are not NEARLY as fragile to ESD now as they were say 10 years ago
Best of luck to ya. If you need any help feel free to pm me w/ questions.

Are you for real? The OP just said he /she can't or won't ground? Your response is nonsencicale! It is a contradicition muddled in mystery wrapped in an enigma of logic?

OK to OP do as all said if you want to dance with the devil. Well really not that bad.

Make a point to touch grounded materials to release electrostatic discharge.
I as most other posters feel this is safe. But do at your own risk. It works 99% of the time but if you are the 1% you could be screwed!

Or RMA?

I have never had any problems with ESD, i work on a hard wood floor though, if your on carpet i would touch something first.

Congrats on the first build, i am currently in the midst of mine aswell.
