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.

This.

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