hi there
ok,to boot into the bios,you need to keep tapping the "delete" key (not back space) at startup,this also may be f2.
then in there you will see your bios and all the settings to change...be carefull in here dont change anything you shouldnt....
tell you what can i have the make of your computer,or at least bios....
when you first turn your machine on you will see all the memory test etc on a black screen....
in there somewhere will state your bios manufacturer,

There are three main BIOS manufacturers: Phoenix Technologies, American Megatrends Inc. (AMI), and Award Software.
let me know which one it is then i can guide you to the correct setting to change...also is this sound coming from the motherboard speaker or the buzzer on board.

have you made sure all fans spin correctly,and the inside of the pc is free of dust.
i will help as much as possible.
regards
danzil

if i remeber correctly 70 degrees and you will hit problems,,,,i have none people to overclock that cpu and not hit 50 degrees....it may be advisable to replace your heatsink and fan just in case...
