I get randomly zapped whenever I touch some of my PC's peripherals. My condenser mic, USB cable used for charging my wireless mouse, and my keyboard with metal frame all zap me every few hours or so.
The PC case itself doesn't shock me when I touch it. It's on a wooden table and my floor has ceramic tiles. No rugs or anything.

How can I tell if it's a PSU or wall socket problem? Or maybe it's even a mobo problem?
Thanks.

A good ground in electrical socket to PSU should soak up any static electricity from PC.
