Has the replacement CPU damaged my motherboard?

Hi all

I'm really puzzled - I replaced my old i7-4770 chip with a i7-4790K on my Asus A81M-E motherboard.

Whilst taking out the old CPU the lever did spring out a bit and lightly hit a memory module.

With the new CPU the fan spins for one second and stops. (Bios is updated to a level that should support the 4790k).

I replaced the old CPU and it would only boot if I remove one of the memory slots. (The one that got a minor ding from the lever!)

I've swapped the memory - both chips work in the one slot.

Does it look like my motherboard is now faulty?

Thanks in anticipation!
