Very slim. Assuming the computer is turned off and unplugged. Just be careful not to damage any thing on the board by slipping or dropping something on it. Make sure and ground yourself by touching something metal like the exterior of your case before you touch anything inside the case.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM

Don't turn it on with the jumper on the reset pins.
