Hello mates

I just overclocked my i3-540 processor from 3.06 GHz to 3.59 GHz from the BIOS. And now it has failed to boot. Even that it is resulting in a never ending restart loop and keeps on restarting until I unplug the power cord. I've got 3 added Cabinet fans and I thought this overclocking would be stable. There's no video output even and no beep. Help me guys, please? I don't want the overclock anymore. Just want to access my PC.

Regards
Adder7i7i

You wanna reset the cmos, there is either a cmos reset button on the back of the mobo by the ports or take out and replace the cmos battery on the motherboard itself.

I will for sure try that. But I am thinking why isn't the overclock stable. People have overclocked the i3-540 to 4.2GHz. There should be a fault, probably. I have 3 fans mounted on my cabinet.

To get a high stable overclock you'll need to up the vcore voltage, unless you know what you are doing I wouldnt touch it, learn to overclock, and take it steady.

If you didn't know that you had to raise your vcore, you should really research overclocking a lot more.

Actually I have overclocked several CPUs set to auto optimize voltage. So, never had to face this problem.

Every chip is different, even between the same processor. And I don't know what "auto optimize voltage" is, but it obviously isn't working.

And again, you need to research overclocking.
