Default Transfer into new case.

Hey all, i have a simple question. I just transfered my MB from my old case into a new one. I made sure both cases were grounded, i was grounded as well(Sitting on the ground) and no power/cords were plugged in. I also was touching the cases constantly. I installed the MB into the new case no problem, now the question is, did i do any damage to my MB, basically static?

Im not done with it, only transfered half during lunch.

I doubt it but the only way to find out now is to get it running but I seriously doubt you did any damage since you were touching the cases

Yup, until you turn the system on, you won't know for sure. Sounds like you're being careful however, so you should be ok. Most folks that fry components don't know any better or are brazen in their approach (and just don't pay as much attention as you are)
