Just went through this and sent the board yesterday. Such a shame that memory oc's are the only one that seem to "brick" the cmos to the point of not being able to release the information, reset cmos. Another poster mentioned the same thing resulting in a RMA. Someone mentioned to turn the computer off, remove the battery, turn power back on, and turning the computer back on. This he called a "hard reset" and was the only way for him to get the board to do what he was asking. Seems logical enough. I didn't give it a chance as I was beyond frustrated and just started prepping to ship the board back. I went through NUMEROUS failed oc's for the processor but I had two fails when trying to OC the memory, the first resulted in a more than necessary attempt to reset CMOS and the second was exactly how you described it. I'm quite curious as to why only with memory.
