I have this board and an Athlon II 240. It hates to when I use the "save and exit" menu item but has no problems with hitting F10 to save BIOS settings... try using F10 instead.
I'm running cheap memory on this system now. I'm running 1333 in bios using (in order) 9, 2T, 9, 9, auto, 24. I would change to 1066 instead. At 1333 my memory is really running 1532 @ 230fsb. It's running 1.60V but you might even have to bump it up to 1.65V.
You can lower the HT Link multiplier by going into Performance and down to Hyper Transport Configuration. Choose HT Link Speed on the next page. They show MHz and GHz but they're all really multipliers. 1Ghz would be 5x, 1.2GHz would be 6x and so on... there are no half multipliers. So at 230 fsb, for example, you would use the 1.8GHz setting... 230 x 9 (the multiplier for 1.8GHz) is 2070.Edited by Maranello - 1/8/11 at 3:37pm
