I'm just a complete amateur in Overclocking and I just watched a quick tutorial on overclocking to 5ghz for my FX-6300:
Wooden floor and table, PC sits under table
thermaltake armor mx+ old case
EVGA Supernova NEX650G
650w "80+ Gold" PSU
EVGA GTX-970 SSC
Corsair vengeance 16GB (2 x 8gb) RAM
MSI 970A SLI Krait Edition
(Btw I accidentally put my laptop
HDD (while it was on and everything was plugged and running) on top of my GPU backplate and a capacitor (I think my dad said it looked like one) burned right in front of me and I turned EVERYTJNF IMEDIATWLY OFF) but PC works perfectly fine after, it all happened YESTERDAY)
I used to run on the AMD stock cheap cooler, now I have the:
THermaltake water 3.0 AIO cooling system
Lastly, I run Windows 10 Professional 64x bit
SeaGate "FireCuda" 2TB (8gb flash?) SSHD
I did exactly as everything that was listed here and "saved and restart" the configuration and turned around and just went straight to the bathroom for a couple mins, after I came back the monitors were on but the lights were flashing on the power button as if it were asleep.
Pressing on it to assume it WAS asleep, nothing! It woouldnt turn on and did other things like holding and pressing the reset button.. nothing happens!
I carefully touched (turning off the power from the PSU and touching the Chassis to ground myself) the water cooler radiator, MOBO heatsinks and GPU. Obviously the heatsinks felt like fire, radiator felt like a 1-2 min touchable microwaved ceramic bowl.
I then put my window fan (those basic window fan) (intake and/or exhaust), both on HIGH and let it blow air on my PC directly on the motherboard without the case cover for about 5 mins and everything felt warm enough to touch.
I did a series of troubleshooting, ranging from: resetting CMOS with the plastic thing to flip it around (just as it says on the booklet) and even tried turning it on while it was flipped.. nothing happens EXCEPT.. my one LED fan on the front flickers ONCE and that's it. Nothing turns on... I tried removing the battery installed on the MOBO and turning it on, doesn't work either.
Also running on just one 8gb stick out of my dual rank 16GB, doesn't work either.
As well as reseating the CPU, carefully removing the watercooling block. Nothing
Unplugged alll the case wires (USB, audio, and including the fans and water cooler. Nothing
All of the resulted in the fan LED light flickering once.
I think my CPU got fried :/
