Default Bios refuses to save changes?

I just updated to the P27 and am being haunted with what appears to be a number of problems. It appears as if my voltage so far (thats all i've tried changing), will not save. Even if I set it to auto it changes back to 1.28. I attempted to set it to 1.20, nothing. I tried several different places and it just defaults back when I save it and exit. I kept getting BSOD and lock ups in windows and discovered my bios voltage wasn't saving. Anyone else having these issues, or have any suggestions?

Update got it to work through "Dynamic Bios Access" it applied through that.

One last question is 1.20 a good idea? I set it to that and its running cooler, except I am at stock speeds. Waiting on my cooler but will it be alright to leave this at 1.20?

Why it is annoying I was more concerned if anyone had gotten this bios update for the 680i? If so if they two had some of the same issues. I can tell you right now some magical way my entire ntune manager was re-mapped to this lame annoying side panel.

Two things to try:

1. Always make your saves from the uGuru section. Make sure to hit F10 when you do.
2. Disable LinkBoost. With it enabled, it automatically increases SB and HTT and you cannot set (save) them lower to what LinkBoost sets them to.

Speaking of LinkBoost, it bumps your PCI slots up to 125MHz and and another bus up to 250MHz and can (did for me) cause HD corruption, so I would suggest not using it for that reason alone, but the fact that it screws with your voltages is pretty annoying too.

Link boost was the first thing i disabled it seemed to make my PC unstable. However this issue i have encounted was not in the shipping BIOS but the updated one. Although it's annoying it does not provent me from using the PC so i can live with it. It's not like i keep messing with the BIOS Once i have got the right setting it won't bother going back in there.
