No it's not.

And how do you know it' just a "small amount" of electricity? I'd be checking that with a volt meter. Could be dangerous, especially if it's mains power.

Not normal at all. Something is not grounded properly. Get a volt meter and check between the case and ground on your plug.

I was actually referring to the ground on your outlet (120VAC); sorry, I should have been more clear.

It wouldn't hurt to check between the case and your PSU's ground pins (DC) like you mentioned though. Either 8 or 24 pin cable ground will work, they are the same ground at the PSU.

How are you detecting the "small amounts of electricity..." ?

Mains power can feel like just a tingle if you are not well grounded, then when you're grounded you get fried!
