Fried component, need help locating it pc building site custom pc builder

I recently spent over $500 on supplies for a home theater/gaming PC. After an afternoon of hard work, I plugged my new machine in, turned on the power supply, and pressed the button. Nothing. Not even a beep. I spent the next 5 hours watching tutorial videos and checking every part and connection for issues, but it refused to boot. I only managed to get a single, quiet beep from the motherboard.

I removed the components from the case, and attempted to start the PC by bridging the power switch pins. It finally started, but only ran for a minute before beeping 5 times and shutting down. After a few seconds, it would repeat the process. I tried again, this time connecting the power button, but the same thing happened again. Removing the GPU and Wi-Fi card did not help either (the cpu does not require a graphics card, it is an Intel Pentium G4560). I tried moving the ram to a diffent slot, since I only have one stick (moved from the third slot from the CPU to the one next to the CPU).

After a week, I managed to get it to work inside the case by only screwing the PC to 4 of the 6 standoffs, (all 6 standoffs were behind the board, just not attached to the board with a screw. I have no idea how this helped.) but it failed to boot again, and started the beep cycle I mentioned. The PC was not connected to a monitor at any point over the past week, so I tried that as well. The same this as usual.

Unfortunately, I started to smell a strange burning scent coming from the motherboard after an hour of being inside the case. I reached to turn it off, but a loud buzz started and it just turned off. I tried to boot it outside the case, but it still refused to turn on at all. I inspected the motherboard for visible damage, but there was none.

I was using an anti-static bracelet, and I was not using magnet-tipped screwdrivers, so it probably was not an issue with static electricity or magnets. No parts were dropped, bent, or otherwise visibly damaged.

This is my first build. Please read the parts list, it was supposedly compatible (according to pcpartpicker.com as well as my research). Also, if it was the case shorting the motherboard that lead to the issue, would the motherboard's (or case's) warranty replace a component that caused a fatal system issue.
