lol!
I'm sorry I just had to laugh at that, personally I would like to know how I could set up a fan like that. You know, keep away from my computer or get shocked!

Hahaha, OK i've stopped laughing now, yeah it's actually a bad thing and it might cause some damage. Are you absolutely sure that it's the fan? Because if it is then I'd reccomend buying a new one or trying another one.

Have you tried removing the fan and testing if you still get a shock?
