I think i killed my cpu or mobo

So i tried to do overclocking without thinking because im an idiot, and out of nowhere my pc would randomly reboot, so i got rid of the overclock and factory reset everything and wiped my drives and put everything back to normal but now my pc just keeps freezing. i have a r7 1700x  and i put it at 1.6 volts i beleive and 2.8 GHz. i just wanted to know how you can tell if you broke your pc or not haha. EDIT: my mobo (msi b450m gaming plus) has the red CPU light blink when it is turned on after clearing CMOS)

:| 1.6V? That's way too high.

Clear motherboard CMOS to reset the settings back to defaults and leave it at defaults.

If your motherboard doesn't have a Clear CMOS button or jumper on the motherboard, then unplug the PSU and remove the small silver button battery from the motherboard. Leave it a few minutes then put the battery back in and plug it back in. Should 'forget' the BIOS settings and go back to defaults.

 

If you can still get in to the BIOS settings there might also be a revert to defaults option in there which should be easier.

take the psu cable out and take out small silver battery that is somewhere on the mobo, keep it out for couple seconds, put it back in and turn on like always.

mobo tends to be more fragile for things like this, but if you managed to really push 1.6v your cpu might also be dead

Chances are your CPU sees the 1.6V and is just like "Nnnnope, nope nope nope!" and shuts down in panic.

So I did that and booted the PC but my mobo is flashing the CPU light on the side of it, I think I fucked up big time lmao
