    Question BIOS resetting methods

    Is there any difference between the following metods of resetting BIOS (clearing CMOS) settings:
    1) inside BIOS, using option „Load Optimized Defaults” (or, if appickable, load fail-safe defaults)
    2) at the back of the motherboard, pressing „Clear CMOS" button
    3) on the motherboard, using the (CLRTC) jumper
    4) on the motherboard, reseating (not a typo, for non-english speakers) the CMOS battery
    5) reflashing BIOS using the same version (haven’t tried if possible, but just in theory)?

    By the way, after flashing a newer BIOS, is there a need to load optimized defaults and then start setting everything up from there?
