Thanks in advanced.
The possibilities range from no damage to complete HD fail. Chances are really high that there was no damage at all and if you have a back up (you do have a backup right?) no possibility of data loss
Turn it on and find out
Thanks for the insanely quick reply mate.
To be honest, I'm actually more concerned about potential damage done to my PSU, CPU and GPU, HDD/data loss is the least of my concerns right now.
My rig turned on just fine btw.
