Yes, there are F keys to load defaults, and exit & save, but I have fat fingered them a time or two(or thought I did) and freaked out......so I just usually use the mouse lol

Based on your CPU-Z screenshot, I think you still have AI Suite II installed. I recommend uninstalling it because it is very likely resulting in what you're seeing in CPU-Z due to applying settings.

Also, you can take actual screenshots of the BIOS by pressing F12 while a USB flash drive is connected. The only thing you will have to do is you will have to re-save them as .PNG files in Microsoft Paint. Also, when you take screenshots in the BIOS, what you see is what you get. So be sure to scroll and take additional screenshots to capture everything.

Last but not least, Alt+Print Screen captures just the active Window. So when you take screenshots of things like CPU-Z, press Alt+Print Screen.

If it's actually installed, and it looks like it might be, go into the Programs and Features control panel and look for "AI Suite II'. Double-click it and then confirm that you do want to install it.

Then reboot and check CPU-Z again. If CPU-Z is still showing that it's overclocked (in the lower-left portion of CPU-Z's interface), then there may be something else we can do.

Do you have an "ASUS" folder in C:\Program Files (86) or even just C:\Program Files?

Have you ever used "OC Tuner" in the BIOS?
