4.2ghz i3570k, default setting now and i'm crashing!

I overclocked my cpu to 4.2ghz and after about 30 mins of playing LoL, my computer crashed. So I decided to hit CLR CMOS to restore my default bios. Now, my computer crashes every time I try to do something like surf the internet or get on a game.

Since everything is restored to default settings, I don't know what else to do... I need some help

  1. Besides the CPU whats M/B make and model?
  2. Asrock z77 extreme4.

    Whenever I try to open up a program or get on firefox I immediately get blue screened.
  3. After resetting the Bios did you go in and verify the settings are truly set to default? Resetting the Bios does not always properly reset the settings. Whats your CPU & Ram speed voltage? What is the ram speed?

    Does your Bios support screen shots?

    What's the CPU voltage?
  6. the cpu voltage is on auto.

    I just deleted everything on my ssd. When I tried reinstalling windows 7 it gave me the blue screen again... :(
    Then I tried it again and gave me an error code saying "The file may be corrupt or missing."

    I understand the CPU is set to Auto but whats it showing for the voltage? Also does your ram have a setting for XMP in the bios. It should be in the overclocking tab?

    Till the problem in the Bios is fixed I don't think you will be able to install windows again.
  8. Is it the CPU PLL Voltage? it shows 1.832v.
    Yes, the ram has a setting for XMP.
  9. Just found out one of my RAM is faulty. I removed one of em and it installed windows 7 fine!
    Now for the return... Who do I call? Newegg or Corsair? and do I have to send back both sticks of rams?
  10. Best answer
    That will do it! Glad you got it figured out.
