i've seen problems like this where the motherboard was grounding to the
case via the motherboard connectors.  atx boxes have metal risers which
should have "oh's" to electrically disconnect the mother board
from the case.  the holes themselves are insulated, but sometimes the
connectors are wider than the insulation strip.
