Only thing i can think of, is that you have some software running that overwrites the BIOS settings.

Since you have MSI MoBo, do you have MSI Command Center installed? If you do, that's the culprit.
I have MSI MoBo as well and for me, MSI Command Center overwrited my BIOS settings, mainly my RAM XMP which in BIOS stays at 3000 Mhz but in OS, it's back to the default 2133 Mhz. Only fix for me was completely uninstalling MSI Command Center.

Either it's software issue or your OC isn't stable, hence why it doesn't stick once you exit BIOS.
