Ok, but it wont ruin my gpu or anything else if I do indeed try this?
I cannot know, better unplug everything else we don't need it anyway to test, just wanna see if it gives video signal: mobo+cpu+ram will do, unplug everything else.
If my mobo and ram is fried, I read that my cpu might be too (which is fine, because I was still going to replace it...)
AMD FX-6100 6-Core Processor
ASUS M5A97 R2.0, Socket-AM3+
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 8GB CL9
Be good? Its a "bundle deal".
When i fried a mother with the PCI slot, the processor worked fine on the new mother, i don't know about yours, it could be fried or it could be perfectly fine, need to test it on another motherboard to know.
The new build looks nice!
P.s: I got some idea pm if you are alright with "morally grey".
