      You made it sound common but I have never seen a case that has the power supply in the bottom of it. Att the cases at the pc show have top mounted ones, the normal way

      @Must Ya, you definitely have a point. Especially the younger audience. Oh! Even worse are people who don't ask questions or even care to ask. Definitely Edit the video and put in some extra CYA. It'd be pretty annoying if y'all caught a case cuz someone did the equivalent of sticking their hand/feet in extremely cold substances (i.e. liquid nitrogen) with gloves/boots on.

        Build one of these every year, then use an air compressor to clean it the next year after and sell it.

                                        You need to retract the statement of grounding to an wall outlet. That is dangerous. Look up ESD safety.

                                          In a Techquickie video Linus said one should never touch the surface of the cpu and don't press it down after putting it onto the socket. Now you said the complete opposite.

                                                                  and upgrade the CPU to 3600 get a 3000 mhz RAM Modules and please change the case !! because this is the only thing you have to change anyway because the PSU is directly throwing heat on the processor which will result in overheating and decreases performance and life of processor

The comment in the beginning about the pill sorter also working to manage the screw storage, that was clearly from somebody who knew what they were talking about and making it simple for regular people. Also, I would have put the PSU in before the motherboard...

I mean it does something but it is not needed. how many times do we watch videos of people not using one and everything is ok. If fact I have never in my life seen a video where a computer build is ruined because of eletrostatic. Never. I mean NEVER. Please show me a video of something terrible has happened from not using the device or a mat. I have built 100s of computers without an ESD device and have always been fine. If you think static will mess up a computer while building than why does it never do that touching any computer component ever. Like just taking the parts out of a box everytime you upgrade your computer. seriously I think it is a bunch of bullshit but I do like the mat. where can I get a cool mat like that?
