Overclocking a 1090T on a old 770-G45. Didn't bother since I have already ordered a Formula IV. I was running prime, temps were fine, 39C-ish, then the temp started running up fast. And ended at 45C when it just shut down without any blue screen. When I powered it back up again it just started burning on my motherboard. It was actually real flames

Can I turn my pc back on and set my clocks to default, or will something like this just kill the board?

You might cause damage to the CPU if you carry on using it, But you can use it at your own risk. Just take the overclock setting's off and put the voltage back to stock to prevent any burning of the mosfets

I would say it's too late for that.

What i meant was. By removeing the overclocking setting's and voltage, the mosfet's would stay much cooler and shouldn't burn up as much when under load just until the new motherboard arrives

I believe it is highly unrecommended.

Actually, yeah, they can. I watched as a friends new CPU literally melted THROUGH his mobo. There was that awful burning-plastic smell. I think catching on fire, versus turning into melting goo are two different things.
