Today I received a new R9 290x to replace my 560Ti but also encountered a few problems. I was able to swap the cards without a problem. The PC booted up fine besides the wrong resolution and I quickly installed the latest drivers. I uninstalled my Nvidia drivers and the computer was working great throughout a few reboots. I decided that I would overclock my i5 2500k to really push my computer to the max by following a guide online but it didn't turn out so well. From what I can recall, I matched everything correct to what was shown on the tutorial. The PC would boot, the BIOs screen would flash, the Windows 8 logo would show up for a few seconds and the screen would then go back. I've tried reseting the CMOS multiple times and again I have the battery laying out of the mobo right now. I'm clueless on what to do and even thought the CPU was broken but the monitor inside the BIOs show temperatures on all four cores along with the clock speed. Please help me, I am stumped on what to do.
