"Moving RAM around" will rarely fix a memory problem, you need to eliminate the variables. If the system wont boot (aka you cant test the RAM), you should remove all but one stick, then replace that stick with another, then do the same in a different ram slot. Only one stick of RAM in the mobo at a time.

I doubt your other hardware is damaged - the board and PSU both have their own protection which often saves components from a big power surge.
Failed Motherboard usually spins the fans with a good PSU, or at least shows LED lights in many cases
Failed CPU is really, really rare - especially when not overclocking very far - 1.25 volts is pretty close to spec.
Any other type of failure will cause beep codes, assuming there's a PC speaker. I actually though that board had an integrated speaker....
