Newer built PC, No Post after overclocking

In an attempt to do all things tech like Linus, I tried overclocking farther than i should have according to factory spec on my CPU(although it was less than Linus already had done in his example) and now i get no post from PC. I have tried CMOS reset, no change; removed battery for CMOS altogether, no change. I have checked ram, because i had also lowered latency, removed both sticks, constant beeps, install 1 at a time, no change from original statement. I have all fans functioning all wires in proper placement and know for a fact I have had NO overheating, no pins bent or broken, I see no bulging or visually malfunctioned motherboard circuitry, removed hard drive and external disk drive for testing, no changes. I removed CPU and fan altogether, PC gave no power or reaction, reinstall, PC starts a cycle of starting and shutting off over and over, i turned off manually, restart it, back to square one. My GPU fan does not spin at all times. Since the start, I have only noticed it actually spinning a couple of times out of all my attempts. Is this where my problem lies? I was overclocking my CPU, not my GPU. Do we feel its connection or the GPU itself? I don't have onboard graphics to test this, nor do i have an extra computer to swap parts with. The monitor is being used right now with a different, much different pc that i can't swap parts with, so monitor is fine.

I'm sure it's not an issue with your GPU. Sounds like a motherboard thing to me if I'm honest. ASRock boards aren't the most durable boards on the market. 

Next time though, don't overclock farther than the manufacturer says so. It's a massive risk.

Your board isnt the best. Its a cheap micro-atx board. You shouldn't really overclock on it. Its probably your board. I am not sure tho since I don't even mess around with overclocking.
