  • I once touched a brand new processor while building a new PC and it shocked me pretty hard. It certainly didn't kill the CPU but I was so scared... It was the top side of the the CPU though, not the pins and the PSU wasn't plugged into the wall socket yet.

  • Hi Linus, There are 2 types of ESD damage direct and Latent. Most ESD damage is latent damage, this means the trace (data line) will carry the signal but will degarde over time (weeks , months or years). This is the worst type damage in the electronics manufacturing industry as the life of the device is reduced and results in a warranty claim and a negative experience for the end user. I would always advise to take sensible ESD precautions when working on electronics. An ESD wrist strap is the best solution or in a pinch leaving your PSU connected to the wall socket (assuming its earthed) while working on the machine and grounding yourself on the chassis before handling components.
