I recently built a new system using the Rosewill ARMOR case and I'm having a problem with the front panel. If I connect a USB or headset into the front panel ports it causes my PC to reset.

It doesn't happen all the time with all devices but when I plug my iPhone in it usually guarantees a reset. I don't even plug it in the entire way, it just has to touch the USB port and the whole system resets 1-5 times before recovering.

I managed to make a workaround by disconnecting the reset switch to the mobo so it was most likely static sending a short through to the reset switch and causing it to short and reset.

Any suggestions on how to fix this without disabling my reset button?

Could be a short in the wiring.
