Sooo right now everything seems stable but Trying to OC causes start up failure

I'd make sure you're system is stable at stock before overclocking.

Did you get all your drivers and software installed without problems?
Try running some stress tests at stock speeds to make sure everything's okay.

Everything installed okay i didnt install any of my games or stuff yet though but drivers and other things work fine

Okay im lost. I tried without using my SSD still had issues i tried with new ram no improvements what so ever. IF i dont OC it runs for a few hours but eventually does the monitor and keyboard death thing. I am not sure how i can fix this and im the only person i know out of all my friends who even messes with computers so their is no one to even ask to look at to see if im missing something.

Have you tried updating your BIOS? Perhaps it might be a BIOS issue? If its already the lastest BIOS, try downgrading to the next lower BIOS version and see if that helps any_

if that doesn't change the situation, then perhaps RMA the motherboard and get a new one, perhaps it could be a motherboard related issue.

This is the only suggestion I can come up with right now. Try changing BIOS versions on the motherboard and report back.

Edit** On my MSi motherboard I had an issue where if I turn off my computer the Motherboard will still have power to it meaning, I can still plug USB devices into the USB slots and it'll still charge my iphone(It was a strange issue, but updating my BIOS fix it for me) The reason why I suggest you try changing BIOS is because so far it sorta sounds like a motherboard issue, if its not then well I really don't have a clue.
