Hello, my question is when I overclock in my Bios to a stable overclock, that I have previously used. I Boot up into windows 7 64 bit it does not keep my settings.

My computer doesn't use the fail safe where if you have an unstable set up it automaticaly rebots into fail safe settings. It boots up on the first boot but it doesn't load the settings into windows. Now I have tried overclocking and underclocking but they both do not stay. My processor is a Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775. My bios is up to date I tried loading flash bios i have tried reinslalling my bios, that didn't work.

Like i said it will boot up it wont boot my settings and then i'll restart go into my bios and everything is still as I had set it. I tried underclocking and overclocking and useing Super PI Ver1.1e just to see if the settings were just not being reconsied by windows. That wasnt the case I keep getting the same CUP score no matter what setting I tryed booting up with my bios.

Now what I am trying to boot up into is:

Now I am not overheating I have a CNPS9700 Zalman cpu cooler its running real cool.

Is something wrong with my motherboard?
Is something wrong with windows?

PLEASE HELP and thank you for your time and effort in trying to help me.

you are probably looking at your settings when you are not at full load. Try enabling load line calibration, and disabling c1e and eist in BIOS.

I had the same board. There isn't Load Line Calibration HOWEVER there is a volt mod you can do. I did it on my board and there was barely any Vdroop unless I turned the voltage up to 1.45 on my E6750. Do a Google search for the "Pencil Mod" for the P35 DS3L. I also used a mechanical pencil for this. Others in the thread recommended a #2 and I tried a different approach. The board has bad Vdroop with a quad core and many people claim to have trouble overclocking quad core CPUs on it.
