Notice how he's got some anti-static foam underneath and not the outside of an anti-static bag? It greatly annoys me that rest motherboards on the outside(s) of those bags. It's only the insides that are anti-static.
i've rubbed motherboards on carpet and they've taken no damage. did it with a Q6600 once as well.


the risk of static damage is extremely low.

asrock > what did the 5 fingers say to the face ?
intel > hmm... not sure
asrock > SLAAAP !!!

if motherboard company's can make things backward compatible like this why cant intel do the same

I tell you what, building up the static in your shoes ( as if you were going to shock another person) can kill hardware though :laugh: if you've actually seen a spark then their could be issues :p



I don't think this board will see light of day, intel will go nuts :laugh:

I've zapped cpus, boards, and cards countless times. They never died.

But anyway, back to ASRock:

Their innovation always amazes me, and their quality and OCing has been increasing at a steady clip as well. I might have an ASRock board sometime in my future.

Call it a pet peeve, it still pisses me off. Plus, just because you see no immediate effect doesn't mean it won't have a latent failure later on down the line. The static it receives could just be enough to exacerbate it to the point of not working as well as it did, and worse case scenarios not working at all.

As for AsRock I always thought that they were spin off from ASUS, in a sense they're turning out to be more innovative than ASUS.

Considering all the components I have ever zapped never died, and were retired from old age or replacement after years of service, I'd say it's not really a major concern, and is more a theoretical precaution instead of a real threat for the vast majority of components. I'm sure there are really sensitive electronics out there, but honestly, mobos, cpus and gpus don't really fall into that category, unless you are zapping the bare die or something.

actually the Q6600 OC'd better after its carpet cleaning.


To me, 'static killed it' is a way of saying 'i have no idea whats wrong, but i want you to pay me for my time anyway'

Maybe you shouldn't use that term then. ;)

I've never had a fatality when not using my anti-static strap or the a-like, it just annoys me that's all. I'm (too) pedantic if you like. Just because it hasn't happened to you doesn't mean it won't happen, hence why these guide lines are in place.

what guidelines? where are they stated?

the closest it gets is the bags say "ESD sensitive device" and thats about it. the really paranoid buy the wrist straps, the rest of us just dont care.

If you don't work in IT then it's just common sense, like reading a manual when something fails. I have to do it due to the agreement the company I work for has with Microsoft and other such associations and manufacturers. Paranoid.... no. Tentative, careful, cautious - much better words for describing those that have some decorum of professionalism.

Protip: it's the mosfets that are sensitive to static as well as things like cmos and shit.

You don't need guidelines Mussels, just a lil electrical understanding.

Put the wrong voltage/amperage through an electrical device and it can fail.

Static shocks can sometimes have pretty epic charges behind them. ( see lightning for most epic example, enough power to instantly burst things into flames or even explode them if evaporation happens fast enough)

Check out this voltage to spark length data

mm gap
0.5
1
2
3
4
5

volts
2850
4350
7350
10350
13350
16350



Also check this out, whilst it's about static generated with car-seats n shit should be eye opening about just how much voltage can be built up just with fabric lol

Hmmm OC a Q6600 at 16350v :roll: although one major thing is the amperes, static discharges have crazy high voltage but crazy low amp's.... i think :confused: well either way i think i need more coffee :laugh:

Static, unlikely. Power still in components, very likely. That's why i always unplug my system and press ON button again to discharge all capacitors before is tart digging into it. Usually all LED's will lit up and fans will spin a bit. After this is done, you can safely work on any hardware without worrying about anything.
