This depends on how dramatic the short is. You can have a shorted mobo fet, if it's only a 6 ohm short, that'll draw a measly 2A from the PSU, the chip will light up red until the resistance rises and the mobo shuts down from a fault. However this could be a high resistance short, meaning it might only be dissipating 120mA of current, it'll get hot, but that's about it aside from mobo instability.
