ESD Workstation??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just got my RAM for my new build, looking to build a bugdet ESD workstation.
Where did you set up your rig?, Where you nervous about ESD?

Sorry this is kinda off-topic, But this RAM and MOBO cost me a good buck and want to be safe. ThanX.

Well ESD can Easily Kill RAM it has to be said You simply Need to Earth the static Charge off your body by touching something such as a radiotor or you could do something better an wear an anti ESD wristband. Pic of one found here : http://www.64bits.se/guider/pcbyggar...sd-armband.jpg

I cant Find one to Buy at the moment..Someone else will im sure if not the Google it or Search on Ebay.

To be safe, keep the PC grounded all the time. Leave the power plug connected and power supply turned off, or connect only power ground to the chassis with a wire. Keep one of your (bare) arms in contact with the chassis all the time you work with the computer or use a ESD wristband conneced to the chassis. Then there can be no build-up of static electrisity between you and the PC. Leave lose parts like RAM or CPU on top of the grounded chassis rather than on the table when swapping things. Never use clothes made of wool when working with sensetive electronics! Keep kids and cats away
