Yeah touch a radiator pipe beforehand to discharge yourself and you'll be fine. Also try not to handle anything but the edges (this goes for motherboards/pci cards too.)

Having said that, I've had four technicians now and only one has taken even vague precautions handling components, and nobody's ever blown a module once.

I couldn't figure out how I blew a server up the other day.

Some may say it was the electrodes on my testicles or the wet finger in a 240v socket. I blame HP myself for a dodgy server.

I automatically only touched the edges due to handling electronics boards at work but there not really IT based, we do have some drives with eproms that are in anti static bags but we still handle them.
