965P DS3 v3.3 Wont Keep overclock

Hi, I've got the above mobo running an E7300 which runs stock at 10x266. I have the latest F14 Bios. With my previous E4300 chip (and until very recently with this one) I have simply enabled manual settings & upped the FSB by a bit to get a very stable 10-15% overclock - not touched voltages etc.
Problem is that now, I do all this, save the settings in the Bios but when it reboots, it forgets the new settings and reverts to 10x266. I cleared the CMOS and then tried again, it remembered my overclock settings for its first 5 or 6 boots but has once again reverted to 10x266. I don't want to have to keep clearing CMOS - Do any of you lot know why my M/B wont remember its settings ? Many Thanks......

Overclock fan speed question

The amount that you can overclock you're video card differes for each individual card. The limiting factors are temperatures and stability. If games start crashing, etc you should back off the overclocking. Also keep in mind the temperature of the card. Increasing fan speeds will lower the temperatures of the card. Increasing the fan speed (as long as you don't go beyond 100%) will not damage the card... It will be louder though. For the 9800gt, the maximum temperature before damage is 105 degrees C. Try to keep the temperatures at 80 or below optimally. Increasing the fan speed is the best way to accomplish this.

Overclocking locked on 945gct-m2 mobo

There is no overclocking settings for this motherboard, the CPU speeds and core settings are automatically determined. You may be able to find a modified bios somewhere, but i would strongly suggest this not be done. A bad bios, or bad flash can essentially turn the motherboard into an expensive paperweight.

I just flashed my Bios Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 from F12 to F13. Now my CPU fan is at full speed. It's loud and driving me nuts. I've looked all through the bios to see if I can slow it down. Also, went on...

it's actually good that your cpu fan is runing at it's full speed. Usually only the manufacturer issues firmwares. Lookforward Gigabyte for the update. thanx

Strangest Overclock Failure Problem Ever

Understand that not all computers can be overclocked. For one, laptops are pretty much out of the question. Also, any OEM (original equipment manufacturer) computer, such as a Dell, HP or E-machine, will be virtually impossible to overclock, so your best bet for overclocking is to purchase or build a custom system, but keep in mind that some motherboards can't be used to overclock. Now let's begin.

The BIOS. Overclocking is best done in the computer’s BIOS. There are some software programs available which allow you to overclock inside the operating system, but the best results are achieved by changing BIOS settings. Usually you can get into your BIOS by pressing DEL (some systems may use F2, F10, or Ctrl-Enter) as soon as your computer begins the POST Here, you can change your FSB (front side bus), memory timings, and your CPU multiplier CPU Clock Ratio
