I haven't overclocked my cpu after this, but after I overclocked it a few days ago, my computer started crashing (games, and sometimes the computer itself). I then put the clocks to normal / default and everything was back to normal.

What happened? And how do I fix this?

[WITHOUT REPLACING THE CPU CUZ NO NO >:I]


notes:
I have xmp 2 turned on

how do I set the clock speed (I know in bios, but idk where :I)? I have an asus Prime z590-V motherboard
I looked in the manual....
....and they don't go into much detail.

All they seem to say is...the BIOS contains the overclock settings (page 3-1).

Overclocking is, by definition, working outside the guaranteed parameters of the system. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. It's called the "silicone lottery" because its success is totally dependent on the specific silicone you are running.

You could leave it be....
or you could try a milder overclock and see if it works. (less clock speed and/or less voltage)
Personally I would leave it be.
