After trying to overclock my cpu (which shouldn't be possible), I tried to overclock my ram.
When I overclocked my cpu, everything was fine but when I overclocked my ram the pc would go "no signal".


Cpu: Athlon200ge
Ram: HyperX 2x4GB 3200Mhz
Mobo: Asus A320M-K
Gpu: Sapphire RX580 8GB
Psu: Corsair VS650W 80 Plus

And yes I know that my build is heavily "bottlenecked"; I was planning on upgrading my cpu.

I even tried pulling out that coin on the motherboard and then after a couple of minutes putting in again. Doesn't work either

Boot failures are a pretty common (and almost necessary) part of overclocking RAM. Consult your motherboard manual to find the "Clear CMOS" jumper or switch. That will reset everything to its default setting and the pc will boot again.

If you OC RAM, expect to have to reset BIOS every 3-5 boots. While finding timings that work etc.
Battery should be removed for 30+ seconds. Or shorting out the 2 pins for 10+ seconds.
It's just part of the deal. In other words, normal.
