Your going to need to downclock the CPU but I would actually start by downclocking the memory first. Download prime95 or another stress test and get real temp and monitor temperatures

Taking out the bios battery resets the bios.

Definitely start by resetting that overclock. Do that and then see if the PC is stable.

You could also go into the bios and hit restore to default settings. Good luck, let us know how you make out

Yea, first reset the bios to default and see if everything checks out, then you can start finding your own stable settings.
