So I tried to overclock things, then I tried to play starcraft and it kept crashing and giving me the blue screen of death. I kept lowering my multiplier and unclocked it back to normal, still did it.. I let the computer cool down and then it was fine, but now when I turn my computer on it says "Overclocking failed. Enter setup, F1 enter setup F2 enter default values. Just about every time I turn my computer on

Clear cmos, enter BIOS, restore default settings, and try not to go down this path in the future.

Cmos? Hmm maybe a slight overclock would be ok if I read up a bit more.

It crashes all the time without overheating.
Phenom 955
Asus evo 880 or 890
Ram ripjaws 1600 7-8-7-24 but my computer defaults to 1333 9-9-9-24 so I changed it but it keeps crashing. Not sure if it's the ram but it still crashes
