I was just connecting my motherboard, gfx, new cooler and my Corsair 620W power supply to test it before dumping it in my new casing. As i reached over to turn off my PSU after a succesful test boot, it gave me a minor electrical shock.
1). Is this harmful to my other hardware?
2). my PSU is upwards of three years old but i notice that i've had this problem with EVERY SINGLE PSU i've ever had in this part of the house - Could the electrician have grounded it wrong? and if so - How do i explain the problem for him so he can fix it?
strange thing is an un-grounded cable on a pc power supply does not prevent function and should have even not given a static shock a place to go, but hey, if it can get into ANY other ground source(outside of the monitor signal cable ect), it will go.
You would be surprised just how much ground jumps from device to device. I am sure static will find a path.
