Help me with my intel core i3

i have intel core i3
intel dh55tc motherboard

some months ago... i overclocked my processor to 3.7ghz... and used it for a month... then when i tried to restore defaults.... it never went to defaults... like i set my FSB to 140 and multiplier to 23.... but when i press "F9" to reload the defaults... it raises the FSB to 163.... don't know why? i tried updating BIOS... nothing happened.... removing CMOS battery then again inserting it... no change...

    Try leaving the battery out for a good 15minutes, while the computer is unplugged.
  4. It's called a jumper.You short out the 2 pins and it resets the BIOS.Taking the Battery out will cause the same effect but sometimes you just need to short the jumpers.Their should be something about it in the motherboards manual.

    But try the battery again and do as ninja said and make sure everything power related is unplugged.
