Is the best bet to call a "PC doctor" and see if he an help? Anybody know how much he'll charge (roughly) for diagnosing the problem - once I know the problem, I'm sure I can fix i.
Instead, find a friend with compatible parts and ask him to swap them into your comp while your at his/her place or they're at your place.

--Edit--
Clearing the CMOS is NOT the solution to your problem so you should stop doing that.

it's hard to tell whether the hatsink and the pu fan calm down, but they're not exactly loud. The main thing that's on full pelt and doesn't calm down in the graphics card

EDIT: i was just thinking that the pc doctor would have better resources, and would be able to test the individual parts to find the problem. I'm willing to spend £50 if i really have to, to get it fixed.

I'm concerned with whether the case fans and cpu fan and psu fan calm down after the initial start up. When they start up they will be running at max speed, it can sound like an airplane getting ready to take off to be honest, but after 3 or so seconds they should calm down and go to a VERY noticeably different level of operation.

I'm trying to see if they will run without anything but the psu, cpu, and ram in the picture. If they will calm down then we can add one more piece (the harddrive) to the equation, if they calm down with that we add one more piece etc etc.

If they don't calm down at all even with just the psu, cpu, and ram hooked up...then my guess is the mobo is dead and you need to get to RMAing it. Then the problem becomes what killed the mobo...was it hardware or just the accidental over clocking simply nuking it...

Either way, we'll figure it out, don't worry. Patience is key.

The case fans are directly connected to the PSU, so I don't think they calmed down before? The case fans also have there own 3 setting speed control attached to them, which I leave on Low.

With just the RAM, mobo, PSU and CPU connected I cannot notice the fans reducing the speed. But I did not think they reduced their speed in the first pace. I thought (which I am probably wrong) that the only fan that noticeably reduced it's speed on my system was the graphics card

That's normal. My 9600GT's fan starts up full blast with the computer, but quiets down once Windows is loaded. Personally, checking a fan's speed is not the way to solve this problem. I think it's either you're motherboard or your CPU.

the cpu heatsink fan doesn't slow down (well, not that I can notice). It's really hard to tell where the problem is.
