thanks for the help!
ive highlighted everytime you said 'mobo' for emphasis on how reptition is a persuasive technique
on topic: im willing to bet that you'll need a new motherboard is the processor sockets are 'scorched'. Slight discoloration could be passable, but if theres some serious burn mark im fairly certain its gone.
i dont think a damaged mobo would damage a PSU, and vice versa.
