Did I blow my processor?

I built myself another computer and it wouldn't boot up. No messages or anything. I finally discovered that I missed plugging in the 12V power to the MoBo. I did that and it still won't boot up, and still no messages diaplayed on the screen or any other indication of life.

Have I ruined my processor turning the system on with out the 12V attached? (This is the four wires from the power supply that plug into the mobo right next to the processor, for those that may not be familiar with installing stuff.)

Many TIA!
