Static Spark Sound - Joomba - 06-15-2012

I created my first rig not too long ago, and I've been noticing what I believe sounds like static electricity sparks coming from within my case. It's random and relatively infrequent, so I am unable to locate the source.

Is this something relatively common in first builds? What could be causing it, and what can I do?

Make sure the motherboard is properly grounded.

With the grounding studs that raise it from the case right? I was very careful with those when I installed it.

Make sure that unconnected power cables are not touching anything.

Or it might be a cable touching a fan.
