Your probably right, but I've done it before to get the fans out , if you do not touch anything on the actual power supply board you should be fine.

It will not kill you, but you are right about severely injuring your self.
Dead no.
Hair standing strait up yes.
I would just make me say "Please sir I take another one".

He's asking you to take your new motherboard out and plug it into all components and turn it on by making contact with the on/off pins that connect to the power button.

When I put a motherboard in a proprietary case I actually put mailing tape over the area where the motherboard is going to be to prevent shorting of this nature. HP and Dell do not want people re-using their cases and tend to have odd areas that are elevated probably deliberately to short out non-proprietary motherboards.

There isn't enough juice to literally cook you (if it is unplugged). But if you make contact with one of the large capacitors (especially if they are damaged and are not discharging properly) the jolt could cause your muscles to contract in such a way that your neck breaks and you could have a heart attack. If it is a powerful enough power supply you can also burn off your finger tips.

I know a person who was thrown six feet across a room when he accidentally discharged a defective capacitor with his body. What might kill you is the electrical shock suddenly causing your muscles to contract; not the force of the shock itself.

Ok. The rig was running fine for 2 day in the case then it turned off and never post again. Which mean the mobo never was shorted in the first place.

EDIT
99.9% of the time dell, HP, etc will mess with the front panel connect to you can't reuse there case. Not a metal hump in the mobo area, because it can short there stuff out too.

That is exactly what I have tried (taking board out and plugging it all in etc), and tbh I also did a similar trick to make sure nothing touched the board (worked for two days or so), but in the end it seems like a dead power supply.
Thanks for the suggestion though.
Stupid HP and Dell lol

It actually was shortened at first, i found where, but then i fixed that (bending the stupid metal plate to suit) and THEN it worked for 2 days

EDIT: Seems like mine was in the .01% lol, I checked all the headers and it suited.

But it still worked for 2 day. That mean the mobo was fine. If the mobo wasn't fine you would BSOD or it wouldn't boot after the metal hump was fixed. But the noise that coming from the PSU is the key to the problem.
