My pc case zaps me when i touch it. I am wondering if i have damaged my PSU. I will be building a new PC so I am trying to decide whether i should use my current PSU or not. It is certain that my wall socket does not have proper earthing.
My PSU- Corsair VS500 (1.5 Years old)
It was connected to the wall socket through this setup:-
Wall Socket>Power Strip (Extension)>UPS>PSU

Any advice , thoughts and/or opinions would be appreciated.
 
It might or might not be damaged, but that is not the kind(quality) of PSU I would trust my brand new parts with...
