The Scummy One

I once had a PC that refused to turn on unless one held the top of the case with 1 hand. It was flawless after that.
We replaced everything in the case except the power switch, and the problem remained. Funny thing is we tried putting things on top of it, and it never worked unless someone was touching it (even lightly), and it was a plastic case, so no current was being transferred.

In your case, make sure that everything is snug, and there is nothing blocking fans, etc..
make sure that wiring is out of the way, and the case side is not grounding anything. Check that wires arent cut or have the insulation removed anywhere
