If it doesn't jumpstart using the paper clip method, it's more than likely dead, although off I were you, I would still try a spare psu on the newer board just to make sure there's nothing wrong with the system, that is, if you have a spare one to test with. Sounds like it's history to me though. (The psu, that is)
Whoops...*IF I were you...auto correct got me, lol
Yeah, thats the best option is to test with another PSU but i don't have any other one to try otherwise i definitely would just to make sure the system is stable etc.
technically i got another PSU but... it's powering a old Athlon 1.2ghz (the PC i am using to type this) which obviously won't work with newer style boards.
but anyways... is it uncommon for a PSU to fry the board (and other components) when they fail? (i have had 3 PSU's die and, so far, none harmed my motherboard or any other components)

Rosewill is about the cheapest you can get, n_k.
Yeah, it was cheap at the time as i needed something cheap but provide decent stable power and that was basically my best option back then.
but since it only lasted 2 years and some odd months it just goes to show it's pretty low quality in terms of it's longevity and this new one (SeaSonic 520watt) should be much better due to 5 year warranty.
p.s. i do leave my PC running 24/7 though.
