Ahh, thats a little more helpful, yeah CPU dont just die, they are pretty tuff. Your start up is probably corrupted. Boot with Windows 7 cd and use startup repair.
That's the first thing I tried - It didn't help. One thing I noticed though that it is showing that my drive letter is D:\\ not C:\\! I wonder why is that.

No, I didn't change anything in ACHI. How do I clear the CMOS?

Is this a fresh install of windows and did you have a bunch of documents on the C drive or were they on a separate drive?

Sounds to me like you'll have to reinstall your OS.. with that Speedy SSD, it shouldnt take too much time...

If you still manage to POST, your hardware is fine, just a corrupt OS.

To clear the CMOS you can remove the coin shaped battery on your motherboard for about 30-40 seconds or look for a clear CMOS jumper on your motherboard. You should give that a try before re-formatting

The P67 Saber has a jumper, read the manual on where it is and how to clear it. After you've cleared it you should hopefully be able to boot fine.

Your PC shut off because it was an unstable overclock, and sometimes it cannot boot afterwards. Clearing the CMOS fixes it.

Thank you very much. I will give that a try. Even though it is a fresh install, I wanted to learn if I can fix such an issue. It I can (or not) I may end up starting from scratch to havething fresh, but learning how to fix an issue like that would be rewarding

When you clear the CMOS everything you previously set in the BIOS is reset to its factory settings. So you'll have to go back and set everything that you had previously.

In your case this is good because you weren't stable so starting from scratch is probably the best thing to do. I noticed you have a 2600k, what clock were you trying to achieve at what VCC voltage? (core voltage).

4.5 required 1.375v for me (so far). It's less for some people and even more for others. Every chip is different.
