Talk us through everything you did, usually a CMOS reset will fix things.
word, it's very difficult to fry a cpu. i haven't ever killed a cpu and i've pushed my E8400 to 4.68ghz on air. along with everything in my sig and probably about 40-50 other machines. sounds like cmos just needs to be reset.
