in my excitement when i got my GPU (RX480) I accidentally forgot to plug in my CPU power connector.
My PC was running but did not start up ("no signal" was on the monitor) what i did notice is that the LED's on the GPU were red (the normal color) and all my fans not spinning.
On that time i also figured out that i only had a 6 pin connected instead of 8 pin (in the GPU).
The thing is my PC didn't even reach POST (i do think so) .
I plugged in the CPU power connector and i fixed the 8 pin in my GPU.
My question is : can my action stated above have caused any damage internally ? So far everything still works fine.
