    So you had the heatsink for the CPU connected, just forgot to connect the fan correct? How long did it run before you realized that, or before it shut itself off the first time?

    It should be ok, even without a fan the heatsink should have cooled the CPU enough to not let any damage occur. Sounds like you may have a short somewhere, you should try the board outside of the case and off the motherboard tray on a box or wooden table.

    Then if it does not start you'll have to look for other issues. Can you list the full specs of this build, memory, graphics, CPU, power supply, ect.
