Bought an NX240 case installed my GA-H110-D3A motherboard on it with a GTX 1080 and Superflow Gold rated 750W PSU.

The fans weren't powering on so I was attempt to troubleshoot the problem by wiggling about and turning around the 4-pin connector. I noticed I'd get some flickering red light at certain angles of the pin while the PC was on. Not the smartest idea in hindsight. But didn't cause any immediate issues and I was grounding myself regularly using the PSU. Turns out the issue was me not plugging in a SATA cable. But then I got fans spinning but no RGB.

While trying to push the system fans cord out the back of the PC case (I had opened the front and back.) My PC shutdown and won't power back on.

Could anyone advise? I'm afraid that I shorted all components, but it might just be that I unplugged something. What is the way forward? So far I've I removed the GPU.

I have a spare 450W PSU on hand.

Turns out it was a Mobo short. GPU is still working. Got a replacement mobo with a faulty 16x PCIE slot from a friend in the meantime. Thanks a lot for the input
