Default Electrical static

Just clean my hp desktop, remove the CPU an and clean it & replace the thermal paste that hasn't been change in years, once I put it back together I felt some electrical static coming off the back screws and other parts off the pc. Any ideas on what might be the problem? Can not having enough thermal paste be causing the problem? Thanks for the help.

Found the problem it was a strip wire causing the electrical static.
