AMD - Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor

MSI - B350 TOMAHAWK ATX AM4 Motherboard

Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory
Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

Hitachi - Ultrastar 7K4000 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
EVGA - GeForce GTX 1070 8GB FTW DT GAMING ACX 3.0 Video Card

I built this PC about two weeks ago and had a mild overclock to about 3.7 and the RAM was boosted to be about 3000 if I remember correctly.

Today I was overclocking my GPU and thought it was all going well, I found a decent overclock and it seemed stable. I went into Cinebench to run another benchmark and noticed that my CPU was back to 3.2. I restarted to try and enter my BIOS and was given no option, just black screen to login screen.

I tried pressing delete anyways and it seems to try and go into the BIOS but my monitor turns off like there is no signal coming from the PC. This happens as well when I try and enter UEFI through Windows, just goes black.

I tried clearing the CMOS using a screwdriver tip to short it but the issue still occurs.

Computer boots and runs just fine but I can't get into the BIOS. I really want to have my CPU overclocked at least a little bit and for sure bring my RAM back up. (It's 3200 RAM but it doesn't play nice).

Please help! Thank you!
