?Overheating? CPU on post, won't let me into BIOS before losing all power

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Specs (for reference):



H100i GTX 240mm AIO

20GB G.SKILL DDR3-1600

R9 390X Tri-X OC

EVGA GQ-1000W 80+ Gold


Here's how it started: I tried overclocking my FX-9590 on my AIO which didn't favor too well in temps. But then (just for the heck of it) I set the fan curve to 100% and it did fine. The entire rest of the time I used my PC on those settings that day I didn't see temps over 60C whilst I was running Cinebench R15 or playing games. All was well.


The Problem: After a long and seemingly successful day at overclocking, I powered off. The next morning I went to turn it on and it gave a CPU Fan Error and then shut off before I could do anything. It has been doing that for the last 4 days now, and I haven't been able to get it to BIOS before it cuts all power (does so roughly 5 seconds after power on).


What I've already tried: I tried clearing the RTC RAM and checking connections (everything lights up, and all of the fans are working).


My question(s): Is there a way to clear my settings without getting to BIOS or booting to Windows (as those things aren't possible)? Would this fix it if there was a way to do so? What would you suggest? Is my pump dead? etc.


Please HELP !!!
