I check the "Apply Overclock on Windows Start-Up" box and I still get 540/700 in the Monitor. Is there some setting that's wrong or something?
Well, for one, the clock speeds in slider controls don't match your startup values. Try this;

Clear (uncheck) the "Enable driver-level hardware overclocking" box, then click Apply and OK. Exit out of RivaTuner completely. Start up RivaTuner again and set your custom clocks. Click Apply and OK. Now open up hardware monitor. Launch a 3d application for a minute or so. Close it. Look at the hardware monitor log. Did the clock speeds change during running of the 3d app?

If not, perhaps there is some sort of Forceware bug. Try updating your graphics card drivers.

You could also get further help with RivaTuner at the RivaTuner Support Forums. Do a search. Maybe there is a particular issue/solution known about RivaTuner and your card.
