    Did you unplug the power cord before you cleared your CMOS? Some bios need for you to hold down the insert key when booting up to also clear the CMOS. Not sure about gigabyte if it needs any extra key/s to be held to clear te CMOS. Sometimes removing the battery and leaving the pc unplugged for about a day works too.

    If you know that your cpu, RAM are working and your heatsink is installed properly, then you probably corrupted your bio and will either need a new bios chip or hot flash the bios chip if you know how.

    When you say you were overclocking the bios, did the computer ever run after the changes were made? Or did it quit starting up immediately after the bios changes were made?

    Just updating the BIOS should not mean you have damaged anything. All that needs to be done is to set it back to the factory defaults. Most boards have a reset jumper, but you state that yours does not. Try removing the memory and powering on, power off again, reinstall the memory and boot. If you can get to the BIOS after that there is a setting for "Load Failsafe Defaults"

    on gigabyte boards there are no jumpers per se. Look for 2 solder points (2 shiny metal dots next to each other) labeled Clear CMOS. use a paper clip unbent or a piece of wire with bared ends to connect these together. that should set your cmos back to factory presets
