plugged it in to sata



then put the two rgb cables in it, with the fans having already been plugged into the mobo (1 cable each in mobo, one each to the device)
turned on pc and it started smoking
turned it off unplugged it all
turned it back on and plugged in monitor, saw nothing so I turned it off now it wont turn on

noticed this melted plastic on the case at the bottom of the mobo

I suppose my next step is to buy a new mobo? Will other parts need to be replaced?
