Accidentally applied 1.68v to 3570k

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.
