Life is suffering.
the hardest part is being expected to know the little but very important things.
You NEED to wear an anti-static wrist strap.
You need to have every stand-off screwed in. You can't miss even one.
The amount of thermal paste needs to be about the size of a rice grain.
These are the 3 things that if every one knew, pre-fab manufacturers would lose billions.
Because I'm not in a welfare country?
Already been down that path, in order to get 200 every two weeks I need to apply for 20 jobs a week, which even when including the agency jobs there's just not that many advertised. The only people who get something for nothing in this country are migrants, which is cucked as fuck.
People suggest applying for jobs I'll never get, but that's weird. Why is this guy fresh out of uni applying for 6 figure jobs? I've actually been told it's not a good idea and it'll give me a bad reputation.
Feels like no one wants to help me and everyone secretly wants me to just... End it.
>You NEED to wear an anti-static wrist strap.
I just touch the case or ground myself some other way. Come to think of it, I don't think i personally know anyone who's shocked a comp to death. I've built around 30 computers without frying a piece.
>You need to have every stand-off screwed in. You can't miss even one.
Every standoff? Erhm, no. Why? 90% of modular cases don't have all 8 standoffs. Plus, it's not that hard to just screw in 8 screws.
>The amount of thermal paste needs to be about the size of a rice grain.
And... Yeah, but you can google that.
>Every standoff? Erhm, no. Why? 90% of modular cases don't have all 8 standoffs. Plus, it's not that hard to just screw in 8 screws
because standoffs aren't just a grounding point but equalize the strain throughout the PCB
Is your computer lifting weights?
Even with a 900 series card and a hyper 212 evo, I don't have any exceptional strain on my Mobo
Didn't know that it was gradual. From what I've read online, it's "fuck, i felt that" "Fuck, it won't POST"

no, it's not. That doesn't make sense if you have the slightest understanding of semiconductors.
"Electrostatic damage is defined as “change to an item caused by an electrostatic discharge that makes it fail to meet one or more specified parameters.” and can occur at any point from manufacture to field service. Typically, damage results from handling the devices in uncontrolled surroundings or when poor ESD control practices are used. Generally damage is classified as either a catastrophic failure or a latent defect.
When an electronic device is exposed to an ESD event, it may no longer function. The ESD event may have caused a metal melt, junction breakdown, or oxide failure. The device's circuitry is permanently damaged causing the device to stop functioning totally or at least partially. Such failures usually can be detected when the device is tested before shipment. If a damaging level ESD event occurs after test, the part may go into production and the damage will go undetected until the device fails in final test."
I'm paranoid that I may have inadvertantly subjected my PC to ESD damage....the latent kind that doesn't manifest itself right away. You see, I just built a new rig and everything has run flawlessly so far....almost too good. I've been reading up on ESD and now it's got me paranoid. I fear that one of these days my PC will start malfunctioning due to it being weakened (and from what I read...it could be Ok for months and then start showing signs....now THAT would suck). But it's probably perfectly fine....after all, I tried to wear the geek strap throughout the entire install, but my entire house is carpeted and I think I may have forgotten to ground myself a few times. That brings up my first question...is hardware these days made to withstand a certain amount of ESD (like 2000 volts)? Do they have ESD diode chips these days that "take the hit"?
Is PassMark's BurnInTest (say run for 8 hours straight) a good test to see if any of my components have been subjected to any form of ESD?? I've run it for a short while, and everything seems to be tip-top. I know ESD is hard to pin point, and I'm probably just worrying for nothing. But like I said, I'm paranoid (I think by nature) and I'd like to not be any more! I just want to enjoy my PC without having to worry about it failing! One last thing....if I do run the BurnInTest, and it passes after 8 hours, is it safe to say that the entire PC has been spared of ESD up until this point?
ESD protection has gotten a lot better in the last decade or so- it's really hard to actually fuck up your build these days.
That said, I use my ESD wrist strap whenever I touch the insides of my build just because it's better to be safe than sorry.
>save up the stalks
>once you have enough to fill a quarter gallon glass bottle 3/4ths full fill the rest of the bottle with hardest vodka you can find
>let it sit for ~6 months
>sieve out stalks
>you now have an 1/8th gallon of green dragon(thc-infused vodka)
Shit'll get you high as well as bud. Did this shit all the time when I was smoking a lot.
>but still needed a REFERENCE MONITOR for his sick EDM productions
That's a 1xx Hz monitor, and it shows COUNTER STRIKE and ESEA in the picture, so go figure what the monitor is for.
that sounds pretty cool but i cant into alcohol at all, first and only time i drank was around 6 years ago, i managed half a can of lager and then fell asleep...didnt get drunk...at least i dont htink i did but within minutes of starting to drink i was feeling the need to sleep to the point where i couldnt keep myself awake.
