I accidentally tried to plug a USB C (coming from a PreSonus audio interface) into a HDMI i thought was the USB C port on the back of my PC.
The PC shut down instantly, I freaked out and switched the PSU off, waited and switched it on again. The PC booted kinda slow so I turned it off and turned it on again and it booted like always.
Then I played some videogames at maximum settings so I know the pc is running fine, and everything went well.
Could the motherboard have a problematic short circuit even if the pc ran ok? How do I know if there is a short circuit? I tested all ports and all of em worked fine.
 
if your lucky your PSU did what it was supposed to keep your PC from bursting into a ball of flames (exageration). it seems you did not suffer any damage but I'd definitely keep an eye on it. i'd be concerned mostly with the GPU

Why concerned with the GPU? The HDMI port was the one on the MB.
