You can add a fan to stop overheating or restore your components to stock temperatures.

Hit F2 or Del when your PC boots to enter BIOS and change it back to defualt in the BIOS. What BIOS you have depends on where you need to change the setting but generally it should be under "jumperless" connections/settings.

BIOS is the safer and more easy way IMO.


If you don't know where/what the BIOS is how on earth did you OC your PC in the first place?
