    Question How to properly store unused PC Components for long periods of time?


    Greetings to all.

    As the title suggest, How do you keep/store any of our PC Components for 'very' long periods of time (years)?
    From what I have observed on my behalf and experience kai bisan nakabutang sa tarong box/container ang item, maguba man hinu-on... [due to humidity?]

    we have some so called 'myth' sab in the saying on computers..., "kung dili gamiton, maguba ra hinu-on"

    Mostly mga HDD and RAM ako ma store (DDR2 pa gani ning uban. Hahaha). I'll wrap it with anti-static plastic and I'll avoid contacting with any paper/carton material since mo generate ni sila ug static. Wooden drawer/box my choice, also dapat coated ug varnish para nindot tan'awon Hahaha.

    For the myth, I can't say tinood. depende ra cguro kong unsaon nimo pag tago ang mga parts.

    Ako ra gibilin ako mga hdd ug ram for mga 2 years sa drawer without any protection (daghan siya mga kuyog nga gamit). Gitaod nako sa pc sa ako mama ok raman hahaha. Not sure for mobo/gpu/cpu kay ako raman ibaligya kung di gamiton rather than ma stand-by ra

    Best practices: wrap in anti-static bag then place inside a box

    The best way to store electronic devices, is to place it inside an anti-static bag, together with a silica gel inside (to absorb moisture), wrap it with a bubble wrap (to protect from impacts), and keep it inside a box.

    The only myth they said na maguba is that when you store a device that has a battery on it, though electronic devices can withstand about 80 degrees Celsius in most cases. So there you have it, hope this helps
