Burnt mobo from bad psu - is everything safe to reuse?

hello all
been awhile but i hope im in the right section :sweat:

off section (psu related) :ange: : I went to turn on my pc i built today and as i done so the power supply I have made some "not so pleasant" noises (tick tick tick - but loud - like a car trying to start) and the pc refused to turn back on.

back to this section (mobo related) :??: : As quick as I could I checked over the mobo to find what had gone wrong and i found that the 24 pin connector from the psu had (no sh**) melted a few of the pins. the motherboard was all singed around the 24 pin Port.

:cry: this has scared the Fu** out of me and im quite concerned about the other components on the board. I cant check them my self as most are all water cooled and i kind of had a bit of a leak as I took the cards and stuff out of the computer ( some things got wet - its all premixed coolants) and im letting them dry (took all the blocks off them)

Would everything still be usable - there dosnt seem to be any visible damage to anything (besides from the coolant) there is at least $3000 - $4000 worth of electronic stuff in it.

If this sounds like its in the wrong section im sorry - i just thought, you know, bad motherboard it might fit in here

my profile should have my pc specs if it dosnt appear at the bottom of this post

  1. If just the motherboard have burnned then the the rest of the parts can be ok. And you can reuse them.
  2. oh thats a relief, even if they dont work, that takes a slight load of my mind untill i can rebuild.

    would anyone know (again wrong section, doi) why my psu might have done this?
