    What did you do as a "clean install"? The reason I ask is because you said, "I think i could of damaged the cpu or mobo not sure though!" This opportunity should not be a part of a clean install!!!

    Also, why were you doing a "clean install", trying to fix a problem???

    Make sure your computer's BIOS has everything up to speed like it should. Correct multiplier, correct FSB, correct memory speed and timing etc.
