Here is what happened, when I was just about ready to power on the computer after being built, I first had the ram in the wrong spot as well as the cpu fan was not plug in. Of course I powered it on, it didn't hurt anything, however I was under the impression the clear cmos button was okay to press while on. That was my fault for having it the wrong way. I remedied the the cpu fan/memory slots. My main question is, in the early stages of posting the motherboard, would shutting the pc down using this button only 2 or 3 times have any ill effect on the motherboard/power supply/ any internal hardware? I wont do it ever again, that is for sure.
Also the board seems to be working fine, I will list specs below just for reference, also i did notice that sometimes after I save in the bios, it will shut down automatically really fast, and other times it does not. Any help would be appreciated.
