I generate a lot of static in my house, with the carpet and me wearing socks frequently... I sometimes touch the case and see a spark from all my static. I dont want to accidentally hit the side panel onto the heatsink and zap it. Will it upset my computer, or because its grounded nothing happens.

Man loving this thing, 13C difference, with the help of the fan of course...
My cpu is set up perfectly! it is horizontal, the cpu fan sucks air in and my case fan above it sucks air out, then my side fan sucks the air from the side!

Think about what you just said for a second

When you ground yourself before working on a PC you touch the case......
