Default overclocking nightmare

when you fry something from overclocking dose it just fry the part you are overclocking or the mobo and ram as well?

The memory is most likely fine. How did you manage to fry a cpu? That is very difficult to do nowadays...

Sounds like you should have done some more research. Did you mess with any voltages? That's the killer if you crank them too high.

sometimes just resetting the cmos doesn't work, my suggestion would be to not just reset the cmos but clear it, unplug the plug from the back of the psu, open up your computer, then take out the battery on the motherboard and leave it out a few minutes, then put it back in and plug the computer back up, then it should be set back to default settings...

You have to almost deliberately try to fry something through overclocking to cause any kind of real damage.

Talk us through everything you did, usually a CMOS reset will fix things.
