I found and disabled the EIST settings but it still will not work ie it still jumps down to 6.0, I have the GIGABYTE g33m-s2.

Also, when you reboot your computer, does it power up normally or does it powerup, then shutdown or reset for a second then power up? If it does, that means the overclock failed and it reverted back to stock clocks, hence why the OC is disappearing.
Also, I run my Q6600 at 391FSB without any issues, so close to 400 isn't an issue.
Yes I am saving the changes lol, and the 400 fsb x 6.0 ''overclock'' does work fine but the issue is getting the multiplier run at 9.0 without droping down to 6.0, the default settings are multiplies at 9.0 and fsb @ 266, the computer resets normally.
edit : I was mistaken, it is not quite a stable 6.0 like before, now it jumps from anywhere from 6.5 to 8.0, is this normal ? These changes can only be observed via Real Temp though, CPU-z just shows 6.0 .Edited by candy wrapper - 2/7/11 at 8:12am
