To be clear I'm not sure if this is an overclocking issue or a keyboard issue, or something else. My 2500k has started crashing every now and then and when it reboots I get to the bios screen with the message 'The system has experienced boot failures due to overclocking... Press any key to continue'. It has been overclocked for a long time and it's done this maybe 5 times over the last few weeks. Most times I press any key and carry on but a couple of times I've had this issue where it won't respond when I press a key. I solved it before by swapping the USBs around but its not having it this time. The keyboard is a Corsair Strafe RGB, and the scroll lock key is constantly flashing which apparently means it's in BIOS mode, and I can hold F1 & Windows to enter/exit that mode. But that doesn't change anything either. I'm hoping to solve it without having to find a ps/2 keyboard or adapter.
