Motherboard overheating when not even on

So last night my pc turned off all the sudden and wouldn’t turn back on so I had a look at it today and I thought that it was my cpu and there was also a buzzing sound coming from somewhere but I’ve just figured out it that my motherboard is overheating without the pc being on all I have it’s the power switch on and it heats up very fast which is keeping it from turning on I think is there anyway to fix it

if you're using your hand to measure the temperature, there's no way of knowing if the temperature is too high or not. Human skin won't accurately be able to measure PC component temperature.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

Trash beauty:

Xeon X5550RX 570 4GB (defective) -Fattydove Racing 240GB - WD Blue 320GB - HP Z400 - 6x2GB DDR3 1066 - EVGA 450W3

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It's possible that a board component shorted causing the sudden shut down and now won't let it power back on. You'll need to try to pin-point exactly what is staying hot with the PC off but plugged into the wall and post a photo of that. Also some details about the system and what it's made from would be super duper useful because no one knows what hardware you have. For all we know you're running a 286SX in a Socket3 motherboard with an AT power supply.
