Yeha, who knows? but yeah, radiators are pretty much always water coolers... unless you go somewhere else other than a comp room... lol...

Just touch a normal house radiator, if you've got copper pipes. If you've got a new house, find anything grounded and metal, like a large pole (?), and touch that. I built my PC without an anti-static band.
