MSI Z77A-GD65: Boot loop/How to edit/reset Bios 1 from Bios 2/OS

I have been OC'ing with the Z77A-GD65, got the CPU to run stably at 4.5GHz at 1.260V, so I decided to get started on the memory. I tightened the timings from 9-9-9-24 to 8-9-8-24, rebooted, and now it's suck in boot loop: It turns on(lights and fans and all) for about 3 seconds, then powers down for 3 seconds, and repeats indefinitely. The only way to stop it is with flipping the PSU switch.

When I used the external Bios switcher found to bios 2, it booted up and everything works flawlessly consistently, except of course I lost my CPU tweaks.

Now the question is: How can I reset/edit Bios 1 externally? I cannot even boot into Bios 1 due to boot looping.

Thanks in advance !

Can u reset the BIOS?
Reset the CMOS memory the right way as is described in the motherboard manual using the clear CMOS link with the power cord unplugged.
