Alright, I'm having some issues Overclocking my e4300

SPECS :

500W Power Supply
XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Motherboard
2x GeForce 7600
2gb DDR2 RAM
Intel Core 2 Duo e4300

I've tried both overclocking through the BIOS as well as with nTune, both to no avail.

What happens :
The Overclock shows as 2250Mhz in both the BIOS itself, and the nTune utility.
Problem is, POST only shows it as 1.80Ghz, and the operating system sees it as 1.80Ghz

I havn't changed the voltages or anything, so they're all still "auto". I changed the FSB bus because the multiplier only allows me to choose between 6 to 9, so I've got to use the FSB to OC it. (FSB is set to 900)

Any ideas why the OC doesn't "Stick"?

Also, I've read about something called a Cold-boot. Any ideas if this is the issue, and if so, how do you fix a cold boot?

Figured it out last night while tinkering with settings.

Apparently, I had to set the FSB and MEM clocks to a 1:1 ratio.
