i inserted the wire heads from my fans in to the MB on the incorrect side, this caused one of the fans to no longer work. naturally because i am a fool i then inserted the otherwise working fan the wrong way and broke that too, because 1 working fan is not acceptable.
i do remember hearing a slight pop when i turned my computer on. how do i tell if it's a motherboard issue? i looked around at all the capacitors and anything that may have appeared as blown or bloating, and they all seem fine. i don't have a multimeter. i will be buying new fans but i want to know first before wasting my money.
