    as far as i know, all mobo standoffs are metal. you shouldnt have juice coursing through your board in such a way that contact causes shockies.

    This has also been my experience. The case should be grounded, and the mobo standoffs are always on the common board ground as well. A voltmeter/multime
    ter
    should be able to test all this for you.

    I wanted to get a volt meter to test where the conduting of electricty around my case was. But nevermind The SATA connectors didn't work on that mobo so yeah.

    Ah. SO does that mean there is current going threough the standoffs but you can complete the ciruit if the stand off loops back into a negative terminal (and therefore this also touches my side panel; it shocks me?

    Really anythings possible, have you ever attempted stripping a phone line wi
    th
    your teeth when the phone decides to ring? that sucks..


    I have completed (or shorted) however one wants to call it, a circuit on one
    of
    my flight controller boards onto a metal frame using metal standoffs on a gp
    s
    module. did'nt really shock me, but it finally let the magic smoke out.

    Stripping a phone line with your teeth. Lol. Ever tried burning the end of the cable with a match or lighter and then use tissue paper or better - paper towels - and then place it and rip it off (the burnt part of the cable).

    lol, I do it with my bare thumb and finger, they are already blisterd and callused <sp> so badly that it does'nt even bother me no more.. I've been known to grab a soldering iron up wrong at times too and sit there and look at it while its sizzling my finger and wonder why the hell its doing that.. haha.. now that effing hurts "after the fact of course".

    Oooooowwwww! I uaed to use a sodering iron when I was a kid, amd I've burned my hand a couple of times with it by picking up the iron the wrong way. I've gotten blisters from it, and it hurts like nobody's business!

    I used to work as a technician assistant for an organ and keyboard repair shop, and we were at this one church where the technician was working on this one organ, picked up the sodering iron by the wrong end, got burnt, only reacted wirh a hissing sound. I believe it was a minister or someone watching over the building made a conment, "Man, I'd be cussing by now,"

    Huh, I wonder why I became a software developer. :)

    -jag
    Code it, script it, automate it!

    I've actually picked it up a couple times like that, for some strange reason.. I presume any sane person would only take one time to figure it out. but working in the field in a hurry does'nt mix with trying to be safe :)

    If I'm not mistaken, everytime I've done this I've only like hissed also.. I believe when you finally feel the burn to the bone it puts you in so much shoch thats all one can muster.
