I have an asus M5A97 pro mobo and an
AMD Phenom II x4 965 be
and an amd radeon 7770 oc edition with 2gb
and a4 gig stick of ram and some other stuffs

My pc was working fine and as I recently got TW rome II i had to bump up my cpu by ocing it in amd vision control center to get playable frames as creative assembly are clearly tools to Sega's dollars sign eyes!
trouble is I only have a stock cooler and ive had it oc'ed to 3.9 ghz before with nopros but I then started playing bf3 and forgot i had it oc'ed and halfway through a match it died and i smelt fried circuit board! so iu turned everything off quick and hoped nothing had happened and that it had just shut itself off but it did not want to turn on again? the power led is on full green and same with the power led on my GPU but nothing else lights up not even the red CPU light not the ram ok led or button will work no fans will work Ive tryed a different psu as well and had exactly the same problem ive bread boarded it checked the CPU over and it seems to be fine no smells or burnetness on the pins or anything the ram seems okay no smells or burns and no smells or burns coming from the mobo but just a green power led :S im so confused ive reset the cmos and removed the battery wierd I cant seem to figure it out? could it be that only a cirtain part of the mobo is fried out?

If the CPU fan is not spinning when starting the board with only CPU and CPU fan installed, then it's a board issue (since you've ruled out a power supply issue).
Regarding the CPU, you can't know unless testing it with an working system.
I would RMA both motherboard and CPU.
