I think RAM already have internal ESD protection chip at data lines. If you have connected GND to grounded. ESD should pass from dataline through ESD zener to GND.

It it possible you actually caused some damage that would only be noticeable in a real usage scenario? For instance causing slow downs and random failures while working on memory intensive applications, etc... Maybe it boots up just fine, but could fail under stress because of the damage? Or is it a guarantee that it would continue to work well as soon as it boots up? I remember having a laptop's memory fail on me once in the past but continued to work normally for a while with decreased performance and would shutdown randomly sometimes.

I have been told that ESD doesn't always instantly kill things; it often shortens their lifespan, so they die unexpectedly at a later time. I wonder if those ram chips would still work if you tested them now.

ESD exists but it must be the most overrated danger in all of electronics. Source: spending 30 years working with electronics in computer and aerospace industries. It's like playing Russian Roulette with a 10,000 chamber revolver. Yes, it's possible to kill something, but very very unlikely.

Hey! The ram might be still "working" but due to the possible damaged data lines, it could act faulty.. i would doo a memtest86+ edit: guyz i really enjoy the video, i watch linus since ever, since his first video and love the "eyebrow" man too, also saw anything and everything he ever released

do not ground yourself, work inside computers, place a cpu in, feel the charge...get a slap from your master because it was a 400$ CPU. Do it 2ce a week, learn for life. OR : Ground yourself !

Isn’t it obvious that a static discharge would be drawn to the ground pins when the heat spreader is grounded and likely connected to the ground pins?

For those of you curious, Linus sponsor was SeaSonic, a manufacturer of power supplies. I can vouch for their quality as I have had one for 1 & a half years and it’s still running strong in my pc. Weird that they include little nylon bags with them though, like why the bags? I guess we’ll never know. Still, if you’re building a pc I would go with them.

What if some static energy just killed one or two memory chip onthat ram but system boots up and would give bsod on memory intensive task? It would be still dead as its unusable.

I think the charge was jumping from medhi's hand to the heat plate which was connected to the ground , and so the current was not flowing through the data line of the ram , and so removing the heat plate killed the ram in the second or third charge most probly
