Hey so I've been wanting to overclock my RAM and so I did,

then, it was running at 3200MHz CL16 (default XMP profile)

I wanted to try to tune it to 3400MHz by upping the Voltage, and I failed, there were many restarts, then my BIOS started to freeze a lot of the times I needed to restart etc.

Then windows wouldn't boot my PC unless I set my RAM to auto (2133MHz).

Now I can't get my RAM back up to 3200MHz at default XMP profile.

did I damage my RAM? is there anything I can do to help me get back to using my default XMP?

Please I need help.

Exact reference of your RAM ?
Try a CMOS reset.
What voltage did you apply, ans what are the spects of your RAM ?
