Overclocking Boot problem? CPU

Hi, I have an FX 6300 which I overclocked to 4.1ghz at 1.39 volts. Prime 95 was very stable, no failures in 24 hours. HOwever, whenever I shut down my PC and start it back up, BIOS says "boot failure detected, cause: overclocking, go back to default". I just don't get it, stable but not stable?Oh, also motherboard is a gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3.

Thanks for the help!

    Passing Prime95 does not guarantee a stable overclock, its a reasonable indicator but the only true test is the PC being stable under normal use.

    Normal use, if you mean everyday tasks like browsing the internet and opening word, then yes it is very stable. However, if you mean it by turning the PC on and BIOS itself says it is not stable then no it is not stable.
