Connecting 5 volts to 3.3v micro-SATA SSD?

What's the most likely effect on a 3.3v micro-SATA SSD that received 5 volts?
It happened by using an adapter without a voltage converter.
At this point neither the MOBO nor SSD is working. Don't care about the old MOBO, but would like to salvage the drive -- but afraid to test it on a new MOBO.

Over voltage would normally kill components! The drive is most likely dead and would not kill the board trying it to find out for sure.
