Default Computer keeps turning on and off on it's own

Last night I was playing LoL. After I got out of the game my computer blue screened and said there had been damage due to overclocking. I tried to restart my system but it just keeps booting, then shutting down in a loop on its own. This morning I cleaned everything out and reapplied the thermal paste and it still keeps happening. I also tried booting it with the bare essentials and to the same result. Any ideas whether it's the PSU or CPU. I had my CPU overclocked to 4GHz.
Here are my system specs:
CPU: i5 2500k
Mobo: Gigabyte z68xp UD4
PSU: Corsair AX 850
Ram: 8gb gskill ripjaws 1600
GPU: Sapphire HD 6950 toxic edition
HSF: CM Hyper 212+
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB
Case: Corsair 600t White SE
