How do you have the power supply plugged into the outlet? Is it through a surge protector or back up UPS? Are you using all 3 prongs on the PSU cable to plug it into a power source? There may also be a grounding problem with your case. You may want to try removing the motherboard from the case and bench testing it to see if you have the same issues.
