Hey everyone, I've run into my first snag trying to OC my PC. I tried to Flash my BIOS from v3.6 to v3.8. M-Flash showed everything went fine. However, on first boot I get a BAD CMOS CHECKSUM error. I reset to default values and it was no good even booting into Win 7.

It dropped my bus from 200 to 133
Amped my multi from 20 to 25 (board max is 24 via +/-).
My speed went from 4.0GHz to 3.2GHz.

3.2 seem stable enough for Win7 to boot but it BSoD after 10 seconds and reboots. I even tried lowering the multi to 12 to see if that would help, same result everytime. Right now, my PC is back at v3.6 and is running like a champ again. Has anyone else had problems like this?
