    I72600k, 32GB Vengeance pro 2133, maximus v extreme, Strix 1070 OC 8g, evo850.

    Just got it back from the shop and it won't boot. At the shop they said that it booted to the login screen but it didn't have the password.

    I've tried flashing Bios and Windows 10 install disc. Any ideas?

    Check all the cables, check the CPU is seated correctly, or just take it back to the shop and say "well, it doesn't work since you touched it".

    Took a long time but I got there in the end...Had to install windows on an old hdd, copy the SSD to another and then format and reinstall windows on SSD.

    Heres the bench results....do you think it would be worth squeezing any more out of it?

    Most of the pictures and links are blocked at work so I can't see anything, but if you're going to overclock I always say push it as far as it will go so you know what your system is capable of. Then when you hit that wall, weigh up the heat and power required and dial back to where you're comfortable. So yeah, if you think you can squeeze a bit more and it's worth the power and heat to do so then get squeezing.
