FSB won't save?

I just have a problem that I can probably blame on my inexperience. Before I start however, let me preface with some specs.

AMD Phenom II x4 955 - OEM
Msi R770
8gb Patriot 1333mhz ram
600w Corsair cx600

The oem version of the 955 can't be overclocked by upping the multiplier because it happens to be the oem version and is subsequently locked. The problem then is that when I try to raise my FSB modestly, 200 to 220, the computer fails to recognize it. I change it in the BIOS, save and exit, and then when I check CPU-z, the FSB is unchanged...

So anyway, I think I'm being a noob here, but any help is greatly appreciated.

  1. yes .. you CPU non BE edition it's locked multiplier ( http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Phenom%20II%20X4%20955%20-%20HDX955FBK4DGI.html ) , and just one way via raise FSB at bios,i t save. as long as your patriot had ramsink no problem , when you try OC raise FSB drop your memory to 1066 it will help stabillity and keep lower voltage for RAM. also keep vcore as possible low
