Nothing touching standoffs doesn't matter because they're always grounded so check that there's standoff only in positions where motherboard has hole for screw if problem came when you changed motherboard.

Was PSU also outside case?

Without grounding case floats always half way between live and neutral and getting mildly "zapped" when touching case is one indicator of that. (also it removes PSUs ability to withstand surges)

I agree, check for extra standoffs, just by counting the standoffs and the number of screws you use to install the board. Good luck

Alright, I think I found the problem -- the standoffs weren't in there correctly... when I unscrewed my motherboard all the standoffs came with it... LOL. That could really be the only cause IMO because yes I started it outside with the PSU outside as well, put the PSU inside and it started as well... now I have everything in a new case and its working correctly. LoL seriously thats annoying =X

but ty guys for all the suggestions
