You sure motherboard and CPU was all that got fried? You did replace power supply too?
What is i7-7790? If you can return it, Ryzen series offer much more value for money.

It may probably ok you probably just need to do a few things to get it up and running, although it sounds like could be damaged or something not working right. That said I agree with the above post you can get something like a Ryzen 1600 or 1700 that will be better in the long run over time with better multitasking and heavy workload capabilities. If you you are still within your return window I agree with above I would just return it and go with Ryzen you can get yourself into a 1600 relatively cheap with a good B350 mobo and be quite happy.

I meant 7700 It's the new KAby Lake Intel processor. I got a good deal- just need to figure out if it can work.
I'm not positive, but a computer repair shop looked at the machine and that was what they said.
It's still unclear what happened to PSU. Was it replaced or did you just change motherboard, CPU and memory.

If you are sure you will never be slapping in Vega or a GTX1080Ti, then 500 watts is plenty; however, a 650 watt PSU would allow you to run a decent GPU in the future without worrying about a 500 watt PSU's adequacy....

It's your money...you are the only person who can determine the value of your actions/wants.
Since it's a done deal...be happy .

you installed the board yourself? did you make sure that the motherboard stand off's are all in the correct spot and you board is not sitting on top of one that in the wrong place where there is no screw hole.
it happens all the time!
and they are easy to miss if your not doing installs on a regular basis.
pull the board and verify all the screw holes line up with the stand off's and there are no extra stand off's shorting to the circuit board.
