Question I heard a zap

Jul 2, 2020
Long story short I spent the better part of 2 days building my first pc with lots of trial and error and finally got it up and running for less than a day 😑 some led strip came in and I went to put it in.

I found the one connection at the bottom for LED input but figured the 3 hole female connector next to it needed to be plugged in too so I found a 4 pin connector right next to the led connector and figured that would work. When I turned on the power about a second or 2 later I heard a zap all the lights in the rig turned off and the start button started flashing. I'm thinking I fried the motherboard but idk. Any help would be cool,thank you.
