Re: motherboard fryed? or cpu?
They look like voltage controllers (from what I can make out) The one on the left of the cpu socket may well be the CPU voltage controller, what voltage were you poking through the board when it died??
Anyway, I would guess that the board is toast, sure it lights up but that only means your psu is working, the cpu you'd need to install into another board to test.
imo your chances of both being dead are pretty high.
