It sounds like you got the system to POST. Did it boot into the operating system? You may have to enter the BIOS and re-set your earlier settings to OC the cpu.

Sounds like the system detected problems with your overclock settings and reset itself to the original speed.

System specs?

i went and turned on my computer yesterday and it started up fine. After 2 hours of running normal my computer shutdown. I took off the case cover and press the on button and the CPU led on my motherboard turned on. My CPU fans are not running at all but my other fans are working.

a i7 860 processor
a WD 500 gig black hard drive
a thermaltake frio cpu fan
a 750 watt corsair power supply
and a lite on dvd burner
i have two case fans
