    Unhappy possible mobo collapse

    Can anyone tell me if it is likely to distroy your mobo by overclocking? I hadn't fiddled with a lot of settings., the bclk 180, multiplier 20, vtt 1.250, pll 0.850 turbo boost disabled. That was all I'd changed, voltages were all stock settings. Now when I try to turn on the computer no fans run, no lights turn on but there is power to the monitors. Does this sound like the mobo jas pooed its self? After I set up the overclock it was running sweet so I put prime 95 on and after about 5 mins the rig died and now my comp is dead. Any help would be great!

    Some more information is needed. Can you please fill in your sig with the exact hardware that you are working with.

    Most likely a corrupt bios, try removing the power cord from the PSU press and hold the systems on/off button for 1 min to discharge any power. Locate the system battery on the board and remove it, also locate the clr cmos jumper and short the pins. You may have to try this for 5 min up to 24hrs. Then remove jumper from clr cmos pins and install battery reconnect the power cord and try.

    Another thing to try is remove all hardware from board only leave 1 stick of ram, 1 video card, disconnect all hdd's and optical drives and all external devices except for keyboard and mouse and monitor. Try clear cmos again.

    Last step is to remove motherboard from case and try same setup.

    + 1 ^^ Clear CMOS for a little bit, if that doesn't help do it for 8+ hours!

    It's unlikely that what you mentioned killed the board, but it could have broke your PSU if it was about to go bad on you. Try to test the PSU in another system if short clear CMOS doesn't work, you can test it while you do the extended clear CMOS.

    Legends ........ If it works. Lol. Ill try resetting the cmos. I hope that works as ive just bought a new heatsink and don't want to have to replace the mobo or processor. I've added a quick signature in case it gives a better idea for ya, cheers all.

    Yes, that would be the first thing you should try anytime you have a major OC failure! Try a short clear, then if no luck try a long clear (And if you have to do this, test the PSU on another system while you wait if you can)

    I've got the battery out just now, I'm leaving it out over night so it'll be out 12+ hours anyway. Fingers crossed that works. I've got an old computer that ill try the power supply in if the long clear doesn't work. I'm a little concerned that its the mobo as there are no lights coming on on the mobo when I try to turn it on at all. I hope your both right about the cmos clearing tho.

    Be sure to disconnect the PSU and short the CMOS pins while it sits overnight.

    Do you have another P55 board, or can you borrow one or test at a friends, so you can test your CPU and memory? No lights on the board doesn't sound good, but that could just be the PSU too, I'd go ahead and test that now while you are waiting on the CMOS clear.

    I have the cmos shorted but the PSU is still connected. I'll pull the connectors tonight as well now. I'll see about testing the PSU on my old computer to see if its alright. Any idea why this might have happened? I might be able to streach to a new mobo but I don't know about a new CPU! Talk about a bad O/Cing expiereance!

    Not sure what it was sitting at while on test, I know when it was on test at 3.4 it was sitting at around 1.25v so maybe slightly higher when it was at 3.6.
