Hey everyone. I’ve got a problem with my PSU. The fan is dying. Should be a relatively simple fix. Find fan of the appropriate size, if there’s a typical 3 or 4 pin plug on the PSU board for it awesome, but I’m pretty handy with a soldering iron if there isn’t.
However, I’ve heard experts stress that they’ve properly discharged a PSU prior to working on it, and it got me to wondering what that actually entailed. When I work on the innards of a computer, I kill power to the computer, and then I hit the power button and watch all of the LEDs go dark. Is that proper enough? I’d like to not get zapped when working on the innards of the PSU.
