Default GA-P35-DS3L & E6750 - BIOS help needed!!!

Hi Folks,

I just put together a new rig, which includes a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L and an Intel Core 2 Duo E6750. My problem is that I'm not too familiar with all the technicalities of a motherboard's BIOS. I was having problems like the CPU fan cutting out and the like so I updated to the newest BIOS, which fixed that problem. I went in to the BIOS and changed the bus speed to 333 MHz and the multiplier to 8x. However, when I take a look using CPU-Z I see that I get my 1333 MHz FSB, but the multiplier is just 6x, not 8x (which gives me a CPU speed of 2 GHz, not 2.67 GHz). It's like the new settings don't want to stick. Maybe something else in the BIOS is overriding my wishes.

Anyone have any ideas? Any help would be appreciated. I bought this board and CPU in order to get into overclocking. So far I'm not having alot of fun. Anyone who can help or has the same motherboard would be a welcome sight.
