    Hey guys. This is probably a stupid question but possibly important to me.

    Is it okay to have a computer tower on a piece of plywood on a carpeted floor. I was assuming that being on the carpet itself would be bad because of static electricity. I could be completely wrong about that as well but i figured just in case... I guess my question to the point is does wood conduct static electricity?

    You cpu should be fine. I have mine on a MDF stand I made sitting on carpet and everything is kosher. It does seem to make the thing a bit louder, but not too much.

    The case itself is grounded so you're safe whether you have it on carpet or wood. I myself have a desk that is wood and have lined the computer area with carpet to reduce the vibration noise of the water pump echoing through the wood.
