Average cost is about $6 to $8.
Connect the alligator clip of the ESD wrist strap, to the metal frame of the open computer case.
You don't want to Static shock any of your computer parts!

2) Work on a table.
Do Not remove any parts from their protective Anti-Static bags, until you are wearing the ESD wrist strap, and it is connected to the metal frame of the open computer case.
Make SURE you have Thermal Paste.

4) Make sure the parts you have are compatible with each other.
