No Post Beep, Black screen after overclocking.

System Specs:
Intel i7-3820
16GB 1600 mhz RAM
Nvidia 690 GTX
875 Watt PSU

After overclocking to 4.3 Ghz and getting it stable, I tried pushing it to 4.4 Ghz, and all the way up to 1.45 vcore. After failing many times for a stable OC, I put all my settings back to where I had them at 4.3 Ghz with 1.41 vcore. When I rebooted, it powered on-off-on like it was adjusting the clock but there was no beep and the monitor screen remained black. I turned off the computer and tried powering it on again and it did the same thing. From there, I removed my CMOS battery for 10 minutes, tried resetting CMOS using the jumper, tried powering on without cmos battery, tested every ram stick in slot 1, tried powering on with confirmed working ram, tried powering on with another PSU, did a breadbuild and nothing worked, with the system still powering on for a few seconds, powering off, and powering back on. Right now I have the cmos battery removed with the jumper in 2-3, and waiting for a few hours to see if that might fix my issue but any ideas from you guys would be great.

  1. the motherboard issue .. maybe :D
  2. Should I try powering on the motherboard without the CPU in it?

    that will not do anything at all because the motherboard cannot function without the CPU

    unless something has changed with motherboards in recent times that lets you access the BIOS (or whatever they use these days (UEFC?) without a processor (but i highly doubt it)

    Did it anyway, Motherboard didn't turn off and back on like it does when the CPU is in there.

    oooh just thought
    what is the cpu fan doing?

    why my processor broke (granted this was a pentium D - no idea what one it was a 2.8 ghz dual core and no it was not over clocked) the CPU fan would turn on and go to max and stay there
