    But now that I check some of the new ASRock Z97 boards (I meant to mention that in a thread, which I think was removed, unless I never submitted it) I'm finding this:

    2 x USB 2.0 Headers (support 4 USB 2.0 ports) (Supports ESD Protection (ASRock Full Spike Protection)

    2 x USB 3.0 Headers (support 4 USB 3.0 ports) (Supports ESD Protection (ASRock Full Spike Protection)

    Supports Lightning/ESD Protection (ASRock Full Spike Protection)

    So this seems like a trend on some of the newer chips, and will be marketed like the coming of the messiah
    Too bad my new board didn't have those marketing scheme... ahahaha it should add up to its value somehow

    I disagree.
    My best unscientific guesstimate is that most motherboards have had some degree of ESD protection as a low cost measure to cut down on the number of RMA'd motherboards and to somewhat protect novice end users from themselves. Common sense tells me that higher end motherboards have more robust ESD protection than low end or mid-range motherboards.

    Absatively, posilutely

    Using an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) goes a long way in providing additional ESD and electrical power protection for your hardware.
