Default Overclock settings reverting? (GFX)

Hey, I have an Asus 7800GTX that idles at around 58C. The default clock settings for the card are 430/1200. When I overclock the card using Asus Smartdoctor or Rivatuner or Coolbits the settings will be accepted and dispaly for a period, but after a duration or even a restart the settings go back to default. I obviously have use settings after reboot on... Does anyone know why this might be occuring?

Thanks

Does it just go back and stay permanently at the default speeds?
Or is the card throttling ?

It reverts back to default settings every time.

Also to add, I have formatted multiple times (not due to this issue) and after each format I try again this issue remains. I usually just give up, but this time I was hoping to figure out why.

Yeah, it's a known bug. I am using the 97.44 set and it kind of does the same thing for me. It keeps the core overclock, but not the memory, cutting it in half. I have to reset it after every reboot. Are you using Rivatuner? If so, do you have the little check box about apply at startup checked? I also force Performance 3D.

I am using asus smartdoctor, and as I said above I am completely aware of keep settings after reboot option in all overclock programs. I don't really think this problem is driver related as I said above I have tried over several formats using many different drivers.
