I just finished putting together my new build and I started it up and there was a small plum of smoke that erupted right when i turned it on. it came from the bottom of the motherboard, maybe near the video card. Anyways everything is working fine and just installed the operating system. Should I be worried?

It sounds like something wasn't grounded. If it works you dodged a bullet.

it seems that you fried your motherboard....but it works??? that's very weird, well your lucky but I would not be surprised if you run into some problems in the future.. do some more research online and find out if it is something serious or just a random glitch with the motherboard.
