The volatages were at the reccommended settings for my overclock according to the tutorial and my bios i bumped it up slightly to make it the reccommeded settings for 4.4 ghz..please tell me i didnt kill my motherboard or cpu??

would you please link the video

Ok heres my specs list before we get started...

A phanteks enthoo pro m SE Tempered glass panel case

Msi 970a gaming pro carbon motherboard

Amd fx 8350 cpu am3 + socket

2×4(G Skills Ripjaws DDR3 RAM OC to 2133)

Corsair H100iv2 AIO cpu cooler

GTX 1060 3GB SC

A 2 TB Seagate Barracuda HDD with ky games and programs,  a kingston 120GB SSD with my windows 10 OS on it amd my drivers of course, and a sandisk SSD plus 240 GB with a few of my Steam games on it.

Ok so i was watching a tutorial on how to use my MSI bios to overclock so i followed at the steps and after i hit the save and reset button to try to overclock my amd fx 8350 to 4.4 it reset i got a black screen no signal on my display, and the 4 post lights come on when i turn my pc on now, Boot, DRAM, CPU,and VGA.

I thought ok maybe i should try to boot with one ram stick so i did and switched to an off brand 1333 mhz DIMM, i switched out my GPU to my gtx 750ti i had laying around in an ESD protector bag, and after i switched i tried to boot still nothing, i even tried resetting the cmos jumper on my motherboard to see if that would work, still nothing, so i thought removing the battery for 5 to 10 seconds would work i tried that still nothing with the boot still the 4 same lights..i am at a crossroads here guys and gals i need some help i dont want thia to be the end of my pc i had just built this last october i dont want to see it go out like this....

Gotta give the voltage amount

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

What recommended voltage(s) did you use?

 

Also your DRAM overclock might not be stable with the CPU running at 4.4 GHz.

Might be a good idea to try 1866 MHz.

Are "risers" installed under the mobo? If you moved things around a lot there might be a short.

What voltage did you set it at?

Yeah most people recommend something like 5 mins to ensure that the cmos is reset properly. 5 to 10 seconds is a very small amount of time and could result in the bios not resetting.

It's a lot, but it's within safe bounds, not likely to have fried the CPU.

Hey everyone update on my damaged parts it was indeed the motherboard i fried trying to overclock my msi 970a gaming pro carbon, was tue motjerboarx i was using currently with my overclock and it messed up with the 4.4 overclock of the cpu yes my voltage was about 1.45,my cpu is fine,ram,gpu,psu,etc. Unfortunately though my motherboard i cannot get another of but the one i post tested on i may have to use for now its an Asus Sabretooth 990fx R2.0 it will support my amd fx 8350 it will have to do for now.
