A cpu can fry in less than a second if not adequately cooled..
When you reinsterted the CPU, were there any wires from the power supply to the motherboard that could have come dislodged?
Any chance you put the CPU in wrong,as in turned 1/4 too much to the right or left?

The yellow light is a diagnostic light and it means hardware issue. Unfortunately, it isnot very specific--it just means system problem, but does not indicate what system
Since you are not hearing any beeps (bios beep codes), I would bet money you toasted your CPU when you inserted it without the benefit of heatsink/fan/thermal paste.
A toasted CPU will allow your PC to powerup, the fans to spin and the drives to run, because even when fried it completes the circuit. But its brain is dead.
If everything is connected properly, I cannot think of anything else it could be
