Yeah, I have the same issues with my Antec Fusion v1, AND my Thermaltake LANBOX Lite. The Thermaltake has a metal front mesh panel surrounding the usb inputs and power/reset switches. Unfortunately here in CO we have lots of dry weather, and I build up lots of static walking around on the carpet. As the previous poster mentioned I touch the power supply case first before touching other stuff, but unfortunately I can't teach my 1 yr old to follow the same practice.
I wish the manufacturers would isolate these switches a bit better from the front metal panel. I have never had this problem with my other builds using front plastic panels and plastic faced switches.
I was thinking of grounding both panels and seeing if that would help. Now after reading about the VFD, I am a bit leery, but will still give it a try. Will let you know what happens.
