PC freezes after unstable overclock but cannot boot after it rests for a few minutes

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

So I recently upgraded my stock cooler on my 2600 to a CM 212 BE.

Before I used to run it at 3.9Ghz with the stock cooler.

 

After getting the 212 BE I pushed it to 4ghz. It was stable for a while but crashed midway during cinebench20. (I was thinking it may not have had enough voltage)

 

So this is where I'm confused at, since the PC freezes should I just press the power button to manually turn off the PC?

 

Because when I do this the PC shuts down, mobo lights are still on. But when I go to turn it on again it doesn't. So I switch off the psu at this point and wait it out.

After like 3-5 mins I turn the psu back on but my PC still doesn't boot up. The mobo lights flashes once after psu is switched on so I don't know why it doesn't boot.

I'll have to wait quite a bit before it turns on again.

 

Now have I been doing something wrong? If so can someone point it out for me?

And if I didn't do anything wrong, is it usually like this after an unstable overclock? Having to wait quite a bit before you can boot up the PC that is.

 

 

Thanks in advance!

sounds like the cpu is over heating? check if its seated properly

All good, it just needed more voltage to stabilize. When I ran cinebench 20 max temps were around 66 at 4ghz oc.

Is that a good temp?

 

Since when I played Witcher 3 with stock cooler and 3.9ghz the temps were in the low 70s.
