Rig stops on touch of my hand

I have a rig with 6 Saphire Nitro cards that will stop if I touch the heat sink tubes of any of the cards. Sometimes, I think, even if I go near the rig.

Anyone experience this? Have a solution?

    No clue why you're having that problem... but here's the age old solution:

    "Doctor, it hurts when I do this. "
    "Don't do that. "

    Sounds as if you are earthing the rig through you. Check your leccy connections are all ok (earthed) and your MoBo or other soldering points are not touching any metal surface.

    Earthing (Grounding) was my first thought too. However, I think static discharge is the culprit. I need to remember to hold on to the grounded case first before touching the heat pipes to see if they are warm. I did a test doing this and the rig did not stop hashing.
