Computer shuts off when I touch it

I built a PC out of a LANBOX LITE http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133045 and an ASUS http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131657 with an AMD chip in it.

Every time I _touch_ the case, and get the _lightest_ static shock, the computer resets, just as if you had hit the power switch.

Also, if you touch it again with an other static shock, the computer turn on again.

The case is connected to the motherboard properly with all standoffs attached.

Case problem, or motherboard problem?

  1. Are you touching the metal or plastic? If you're touching plastic it wouldn't be possible.
  2. Could be a problem with the PSU and grounding.

    That entire case is made of metal, so definitely metal

    So you think it's the PSU, and _not_ the case and _not_ the motherboard?
