So i have a relatively new build, and I had an accident with it. To be clear, it still works no problem, but I'm still a little paranoid about it. So the accident occured while i was away, otherwise i would have stopped it. So basically what happened, is my mom threw a cable that from what i can see pulled out the mobo power connector a little bit. That caused the pc to go into a "fans full blast(primarily on the gpu) and no monitor signal". I have seen the same thing happen on another pc before. With about the same cause. I checked for any shorts and couldn't find any, so that was good. There was a bit of an odd smell when i sniffed inside the case, but that could be the smell of the dust on the fans i gotta clean. I whould like to just get rid of any paranoia by double checking with you. I just wonder has anyone elese
seen this before, and does it maybe decrease the lifespan of the components? Already feeling better just after typing this
