Hey, Ive been using my q6600 at 3.2 for about 4 days now without no problems

Earlier I got home, turned on my computer and my speeds were back to normal at 2.4

Any ideas?

Help! My BIOS allows me to change settings but they don't stick once I've gotten to the operating system!

Unfortunately this is a frequent problem that seems to occur for several different reasons. The most reliable fix is to remove the CMOS battery as shown above after restoring the default settings in the BIOS. Some have also found that USB storage devices cause problems with booting, so try removing any USB storage devices attached.

Was the overclock stable?

My Gigabyte board auto resets if the overclock isn't bootable.

I am having a very similar problem... I have the same mobo as you and the q6600. I had it running at 3.2ghz stable for around a month and a half. One day after I turned my computer on it suddenly shows 2.4ghz. I have no idea how to fix this.

Thats exactly what happened

I to had mine at 3.2 stable for about 4 days then boom my computer is back at 2.4

I raised it back up to 3.2 lets see how much days it lasts until it gets reset again

We are in the same boat... I have a usb storage device that's always plugged in and I ran prime 95 for around 16 hours and it was stable.

I had that problem as well. I found out that when i overclocked my cpu, i had to unplug every usb device i had plugged into my computer. Turns out that the culprit was my USB wireless adapter for internet. So everytime i have to restart/turn off my computer, i have to unplug it. Kind of a pain in the butt but if you want to keep your overclock it is the only way i found out how to do it. Good luck mate.
