I believe what happened is this. The wire that was obstructing the fan from spinning cause the fan to "whine" then the motor burnt out. I'm willing to bet that your current mobo / bios has a feature that prevents the PC from booting if the mobo / bios detects that the fan is either not connected to the mobo, or in this case isn't working. This feature prevents the CPU from overheating and is also something that you can change form (enable to disable) but since you cleared your CMOS this feature is now enabled by default. That's why your PC won't boot and nothing will work. If you replace the CPU fan, i bet your problem would be solved.
BUt, since your getting a new MOBO anyway, why not take out a hammer and have a little fun?
