I have recently upgraded 2 computer at our office. They each have a new Corsair 88R case. The problem is that these new machine are extremely susceptible to static. Most of the time, when the user touches the case -- even to [up]plug a USB device, the machine freezes. No keyboard, no mouse, no activity. A hard reset is required. These users' former computers were in the same location and exhibited no such problems. On tech I talked to said I should have used the copper-colored stand-offs to mount the MOBO to the case. Another tech said they were only for MOBOs that had extra mount points beyond the arched "bumps" in the case for mounting. I'm searching for ideas as to why these computers are having such a problem with static whereas their predecessors did not.
