After I touched the pins I pressed the start button then I see smoke rising from one of my wires, I quickly unplug the power cable, stopped smoking right after that, and I also replaced it.

It was one of the wires leading from one of my fans into the motherboard, It burned right through the sleeve of the wire.

Assuming your mother board is ok (I suspect a short from a misplaced or missing standoff) that's probably the best thing to happen to a High Effluent Company PSU.

Well, I have a tech guy coming in tomorrow, checking everything out, I would not like to pay another $200 for another Motherboard.

I did, Nothing happened. (Like usual) I assume that the PSU is dead, but then again it might not be.

Try resetting the CMOS.

1) Unplug the Power Supply
2) Pull the battery on the mobo out and hold the power button for 15 seconds (while the PSU is unplugged) or move the CMOS jumper over.
3) Plug PSU (and battery) in and try to start the PC.
