3570k and ASRock Z77 Extreme4

Screwed up hard and accidentally put 1.68v vcc on my IB. It will not post now, all recovery options have been taken and failed. I know something broke 100%. There was no smoke or odor and no visible damage to mobo or cpu.

Is it more likely that the CPU fried or the mobo?

I can afford to replace both but obviously don't want to have to buy both to find out. It's a shame too because my 3570k was a good one, 4.9ghz at 1.36v stable 76c full load.
