A heartstopping short

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i was playing around with the RGB on my motherboard and accidentally shorted the LED_CPU header. A mini explosion with smoke cane out and my heart almost stopped. My motherboard still works fine after the short and i just used another header, it worked fine...

 

my question is, could i have fried my CPU, and is it a good sign that my pc didnt shut off and kept working?

You probably used a 12v strip in a 5v header (which this board doesn't have afaik) or a 5v strip in a 12v header. If it works fine then it should be good for the most part.

So you suspect its only the header? So i have nothing to worry about?

I would avoid using that header. But if it works then it should be fine.

Thanks. I really just hope it wont affect the board negatively in the long run...
