Hi I have an asRock itx mother board and I went to hook up some mollex adapters for some case fans and then my mobo just pooped out.

I checked my PSU with the paper clip test and the fan was working.

I then put the 24 pin in the socket on the mother board and I could smell a burning smell.

I also hooked up the pins to my gtx 770 and no lights came on on the GPU so I am really confused.

Please help!

2 cents, do not connect other parts for now, esp that 770. if the psu is compromised it might damage other parts. losing a board is one thing (unless you have a very expensive board), but losing an expensive gpu is another.
if you don't have spare psu or something to test parts on. i suggest you take it to a repair shop

Well I did some testing with a volt meter and a a fann and it was working fine, so I think I'm going to take it to a repair shop so they can tell me what is fried on the mobo or not.

Should I disconnect 770 from mobo before technicians start pluggin stuff in?
