I recently purchased this desktop about a month ago and decided to explore the overclocking options using the Omen Command Center. Using the command center I overclocked the I7-8700k to 4.7ghz on all cores and ran the benchmark and received a score of 2406. I than ran other benchmarks such as Userbenchmark and Cinebench and then proceeded to play Dishonored 2 on ultra settings for a few hours monitoring my temperatures and everything was fine and the command center gave me no warnings or messages of the computer becoming unstable.
Today I started up my computer and noticed that the overclock settings had reduced to 4.5ghz. I thought maybe I hadn't saved them or something so I put them back up to 4.7ghz and ran the benchmark and once again no problems or anything and I made sure to apply all changes and as far as I can see theres no specific save option. I then restarted the PC and once again it reverted to 4.5 ghz.
How do I get my overlock settings to save? I don't want to have to redo these settings every single time I turn the computer on.

Im not sure whats happening. Try this as a test.
In Omen Command, set the Core Ratio to 46x and dont set anything else.
Go to Start>Power and hit the Restart button.
The PC should completely turn off including lights, then power itself back on.
Check the ratio to see if it held.
