Like I said, I've worn them in the data center because of things like carpet squares and modules that are so large they require both hands.

On a homebuilt PC, I've never worn a strap and never had an issue.

I've seen laptop ram in a desktop DIM...... There is 100% chance someone can seat it wrong if they try hard enough.

There are no screws. They just snap in and will lock into place with simple thumb pressure. Give it a practice with what you have now.

Yep. The biggest thing is making sure the clips actually snap into place. Usually it means snapping in the RAM, making sure it's seated, and then pressing the clips again to make sure they click.

I have no fucking clue, but it was wedged in there and they said it didnt work for some reason...........

I've also had a CEO of a large company send me a single ram stick VIA envelope and asked to see if we could find files on it.

I have contracted with both SMB/ Large Corporations / and Government, and I'm never shocked by how fucking horrible their IT is. I mean I've literally seen entire city government networks being a fucking disaster.

Dude, I work with the federal government. They make a lot of municipalities look cutting edge.

There's a difference between saying wrist straps are superfluous and saying concern over static potential is stupid.

If you have a strap, might as well use it. But if you don't want to track one down or purchase, as many have alluded without stating outright, . . . just be careful to account for static potential. Don't repair on carpet [and don't go shuffling all over carpet, then return right to the repair]. Don't wear a wooly pullover. Make lots of contact with the frame of the unit while operating. You can even fashion a 'strap' out of bare wire wrapped around your wrist and attached to the frame if you don't want to worry about. Best and easiest is to find a low static, low humidity environment, . . . AC and a hardwood table and floor is fine, wear simple clothes likes shorts and tee, and make plenty of 'grounding' contact with the frame before taking contact with semiconductor and IC parts.

I will say this, the chip shortage is real. And finding machines with TPM is becoming impossible.

Don't listen to these guys! You want to wear a wool jacket, fuzzy slippers and perform this in a carpeted room.

What will Win 11 add that Win 10 can't do? Technically speaking just a facelift to look purty and make microshaft some money?
