[SOLVED] Ryzen Master Killed My PC

Oct 19, 2020
Ryzen Master may have killed my pc not sure! Can anyone help.

Ryzen 5 1600AF
2x8gb Corsair DDR4
GTX 1060 3GB

I was minding my business when I thought it was a good idea to overclock my ram! I did so using the Ram Speed Slider on Ryzen Master. And afterwards I cleaned my pc and now I have a black screen! Does anyone know what happened? PS. I did not mess with voltages and I reset the CMOS probably 30+ times using battery and jumper and it did nothing.

RE: I SOLD MY MOTHERBOARD AND THE RAM I OVERCLOCKED AND NOW IM GETTING NEW PARTS< If i put a the old cpu that I used in the overclocked pc. If its dead will it harm my motherboard? Thanks :)

You shouldnt OC your ram past what its rated to run. The cpu can be used to test if it works

That's really so true...you make it your business when you think it a good idea to overclock. Hard to blame Ryzenmaster for that.

And yes, if the CPU really is faulty it is possible for it to harm a new motherboard. If it has an internal short to ground that would possibly damage the VRM, for instance, although I can't imagine that likely to happen if just memory was overclocked.

use bios and xmp settings for future RAM oc.

same with cpu.

gpu is only piece of hardware id reccomend ocing via software.
I agree with bigtime. A CPU can not just die. Firstly your computer shuts off to protect CPU when it reaches TJ MAX. Have you check the temp of CPU in BIOS or no?👶💯
