So I wanted to overclock my CPU to 3.6Ghz from 3.2 and I also overclocked my RAM from 2400Mhz to 2800Mhz and after I was finished in BIOS I saved and rebooted the computer but the computer did not start though the fans and lights were on. I checked the EZ DEBUG LED on my motherboard and the CPU light was lit indicating there was a problem with the CPU.
I understood that I had overclocked the CPU so I took out the CMOS Battery to reset settings and now I still wanna overclock but what is the limit to overclock? It said 3.6 but that does not seem to work. I don't know if there were problems with the RAM after I overclocked it but it wasn't lit on the DEBUG LED on the motherboard so I think 2800Mhz on the RAM is fine though I wanna double check before I overclock anything again.
EDIT: As dumb as I was I didn’t know you had to take up the voltage as well so whats a good overclocking GHz and voltage without to much heat?
