Right off the bat... when you upgrade a CPU, you should turn everything down to "defaults". If you smell burning, it sounds like the CPU is dead. 1.75v will not kill a cpu, but if the HSF was not properly installed, it could die in about 0.5 second.

Clearing the CMOS is a safe way, but make sure the HSF is installed properly too.... BTW, a burned out CPU is not covered under warrantee, so be thankful if the vendor accepts it. Good luck.
