After getting it stable at 4.5 GHz I went back into the bios to adjust some voltage and I was looking around at the memory voltage and I enabled XMP to see what it was and I think I might've selected a profile because after I exited out of the bios menu and reset I got a boot error that had to relate I believe with RAM or something and now after a reset I get stuck on the bios menu.

Did I mess up and fry something here? What kind of trouble shooting can I do?

Just did this and got BOOTMGR is missing on load screen, used the CMOS jumper and used a screwdriver to jump it and it came up saying my bios was reset and I loaded the default settings.

Not sure why your BootMGR would be missing but its a easy fix. You can either use windows start up repair or Hirens Boot CD.

If using windows then heres a guide on it (assuming windows 7) Use option two : http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/668-system-recover...

If you don't have a windows 7 disk I can walk you through it with hirens boot cd.
