There are so many things wrong with what you said I don't know where to start.
OK, first clear your CMOS and then: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/253365-29-core-overclocking-guide
get an idea of what you are doing.
Second, when you try again (not with OC tweaker this time), make sure to stress test and monitor your temps.
