AMD GPU Overdrive just caused the PC to crash and I can't reboot it

I tried for the first time to use AMD GPU Overdrive, I increased the Memory and GPU by 20%, then I hit "apply" and the computer experienced a huge freeze, before shutting down.

Now, it didn't reboot, it just shut down and now I have no way to boot it again.

 

I just get a black screen and there's nothing I can do.

 

Anyone could help me on this? It's odd as I thought that a GPU overclock by a safe AMD software would have been.............safe, it's not like I was overclocking my CPU and the values I set weren't that high either.

Still, I really don't know what to do here, any help would be really appreciated!
