Do I have to use an antistatic wrist strap when taking out or installing a motherboard.?

motherboard going from old case to newer case

I used to have this question when I was building my computer. I will sum up what I have learned here:

Anti-Static wrist straps are not necessary. If you are confident that you can remember to touch a large metal object before touching a sensitive component (like your computer case, or iron bed) then it would be okay for you to do installations without it. Just remember that some of the more expensive cases are painted (usually black) which means that you won't discharge properly because the paint is usually an insulating material. The back of the case may have bare metal, so you will want to touch there instead. I suggest you don't do any work on a carpet. I also recommend that you do your work barefooted, because that way you maintain a clean link to the apartment/house floor and are thus less likely prone to store up charge in your body.

If you don't have confidence in your memory to remember to touch a large metal object, then paying $3-$5 for a wrist strap which connects to that object is probably a good idea.

But is it worth it? Yes. Electrostatic Discharge is the #1 damage factor in computers which contain many electrically sensitive components (motherboards,videocards, CPU, Hard drive, etc...). If you discharge on these components the lifetime of your computer could easily be cut in half. You probably won't even notice it anyways.Instead of your computer lasting 10 years, it could die at the 5 year mark. Perhaps you won't mind this.
