My PC won’t turn on after I OC it. Clearing CMOS didn’t work!!

I tried to OC my r5 1400 from 3.6 to 3.8. And then I also went for my ram which is 2400mhz and I tried to OC it to 3200mhz it gave me the option so I thought it was ok. My Motherboard is a b350m gaming pro. I tried to clear CMOS and it didn’t work please help!

  1. You can OC 2400 to 3200.

    You might have fried something , if CMOS clear didn't work.

  2. How could I have fried something if it allows me to OC to that number? And what is fried am i screwed??

  3. Just because it's listed , don't mean it's possible , BIOS can be deceiving.

  4. How can I make sure it’s not fried? :( I can’t afford nothing new

  5. What exactly is it doing. You say it won't turn on but do you mean the power light doesn't come on at all or it's just not posting? Sometimes CMOS can be tricky to clear so if it isn't booting to BIOS rather than not turning on at all unplug it and take the CMOS battery out for a few minutes. Unless you played with the voltages too much or gave it a high load line calibration or something the b350 boards I've used don't have a lot of fine grained controls for overclocking so it seems unlikely you could screw up too bad.

  6. @jpe1701 my Motherboard is not detecting my CPU or DRAM the led lights on my MB turn on and the fans of my cpu heat sink turn on. There’s bios Screen and I took the battery out for over 12 hours. I tried it again and it did not work. I can RMA my MB to MSI bc they accepted the request. Idk what I should do bc I don’t know what the problem is.

  7. My MB has ezdebug light features that say what’s not being detected or not.

  8. PROBABLY one of the OC , WENT BAD , and bricked the board. Hopefully they will accept a RMA return.

  9. They are accepting it I guess I’ll send it tomorrow

  10. Good choice , get a good one back and be careful with settings in the BIOS.

  11. I just hope I didn’t fry anything. That’s my biggest fear

  14. Like how could something like this happen? If my cpu and ram is fried will I be able to use the warranty?

  15. Not sure , you'll find out if you have to return more. Hopefully nothing else is damaged.

  16. Yeah i'd rma it. Sucks but that's oc life sometimes. I've never tried manually ocing my RAM, it looks complicated from what I've read but you really got to know your stuff. The other thing is what cpu were you using? I've heard the 8 core chips can really heat up the vrms on the b350s when they are overclocked. Some are better than others with better heatsinks, not sure about your motherboard though so I could be off base.

  17. Hopefully the CPU wasn't compromised.

  18. Yeah hopefully nothing else is hurt.

  19. I’m using the r5 1400 (Ryzen for life) and I wouldn’t be as mad if I need to buy new ram or anything bc Black Friday is right around the corner I forgot about that. But I hope it’s the MB bc then it will be a lot cheaper
