Flashing Black Screen after default Overclock?

I have an AMD FX8350 that was O.C stable to 4.2ghz (stock 3.6).

I decided I wanted to try and give it another O.C so set it back to default through AMD overdrive, as soon as I clicked default my pc restarted and now the screen flashes black every second on the log in screen and whenever I try to log in it logs me back out?

I went into BIOS and reset everything back to how it was and the problem still persists! But in safe mode it's fine?

What the hell is going on??

I have found the issue!

I had to launch in safe mode and use RUN: msconfig /services / hide Microsoft services / and then disabled a service called "AODservice", this is used by amd overdrive and for some reason it was making my cpu go haywire on boot!

I disabled AODservice which gave me the ability to log in normally and then uninstall AMD overdrive, it is now fine!

I'll be sticking to Overclock for through bios only from now on.

Stay away from AMD overdrive!!
