1333? what? your frontside should be like 333 not 1333. you might be changing the wrong setting.

I am using CPU-Z to check (aswell as the Asus utility)
It saves my settings in the bios though, So could that still mean a new cmos battery?

If you have a multi-meter tester. Take the battery out and check it for 3 volts and see what it reads.

Well, i dont have a multi-meter but im sure i can get a new battery..
So can i ask then could the battery cause this..
Is it completely possible for the bios to be saving my settings even after reboots but not applying them in windows?

Also, my bios seems to be abit glitchy recently, like not rebotting my pc after saving and exiting settings etc.

Have you cleared the bios. Set the jumper to clear, remove the battery, unplug the power cord and hold in the power button for a few seconds. And then try to do the settings.

So it is showing your overclock in the bios when it reboots after you save it. And then you are saying it doesn't when you get into windows. Perhaps it is the battery then. I'm just wondering if it is even saving the bios settings you are entering then.
