Specs: Windows 7
While the computer was plugged in, I decided to plug in a 4 pin fan connector to the PSU, is it possible that the motherboard is completely fried?

✔ Best Answer
I don't think so.
Mostly, the short-circuit protection of the PSU will be activated.
Therefore, you should switch off the computer, disconnect the power cable and wait for at least 2 to 3 minutes.

Make sure, that the 4 pin fan is wired correctly.
In doubt, disconnect the fan, if it's an additional fan to cool down your system.

Reconnect the power cable and switch on the computer.
