it's normal, it's not a bios overclock, it's a software overclock so everytime your PC is sarted until the setfsb program start and OC the pc it would run at stock clocks...

Software overclock are one of the worst thing for data corruption that exist on the planet, if you can overclock in the bios, do it by the bios, it would grant a better and safer overclock...

i found this...

Instructions
1
Download and extract the SetFSB ZIP file to the folder of your choice on your computer's hard drive.

2
Right-click the "setfsb.exe" file, then click "Create Shortcut."

3
Click the "Start" menu, then click "All Programs." Right-click the "Startup" folder, then click "Open."

4
Click and drag the SetFSB shortcut icon into the "Startup" folder.

5
Right-click the SetFSB icon, then click "Properties." Click to select the "Shortcut" tab.

6
Click to place your cursor at the end of the "Target" text field, to the right of the closing quotation marks. Press "Spacebar."

7
Type "-w" and then a number between "00" and "99" to indicate the number of seconds to make the SetFSB program wait before executing the program. For example, type "-w05" to make the program wait five seconds after Windows starts. Press "Spacebar."

8
Type "-s" and then a number between "000" and "999" to specify the front side bus speed in MHz (megahertz). For example, to set the front side bus speed to 155 MHz, type "-s155". Press "Spacebar."

9
Type "-i" and then a number between "00" and "99" to indicate the increments in MHZ to use when increasing the front side bus speed. Smaller increments can help your system regulate heat produced by overclocked hardware. For example, type "-i05" to increase the front side bus speed in 5 MHz increments. Press "Spacebar."

10
Click the "Apply" button, then click "OK" to confirm the shortcut settings.

11
Restart your computer.

gr8 guide, obviously the s switch should be set to 249 and the i switch (as it says) to 05. thanx for the post :D 

updated: well, I couldnt make it work lol tried some stuff but wouldnt go throu, found in the setfsb readme all the switches and thought I was almost there but I ll go with plan b: I ll macro the tweak with "do it again" and have it run @ startup lol

still a great guide!
