Default Is my board fried? Did the HX850 kill it?

Hi Guys,

I just picked up a corsair HX850 and hooked it up to my Gigabyte N650 DS4 board. Turns out the PSU was DOA as all I got was a little spin from the fans, then nothing. Tried it in another system and its the same.. so that's going back.

However, when I hooked up my old PSU back to the system I just took it out of, it appears I have a new problem. First of all I just get a little croak from the system speaker (no beep anymore) and there is no video! Ive tried 3 different graphics cards, clearing the cmos, swapping dimms and re-seating the cpu's heatsink. No joy. All my fans are going so there is obviously power getting through, just no video, or speaker beeps :S

Is the board done for? Could the faulty HX850 have done this to it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I dont know what to do now..

I wouldn't think that a corsair PSU would kill your system... that seems odd.
