[SOLVED] WIndows not recognizing my overclock/XMP settings

I have a Ryzen 1600 running on an Asrock B450M Pro4 with Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 cl15 RAM.

I was running an overclock at 3.9ghz at 1.275v with enabled XMP profile for the past two weeks. Everything was fine. Today I tried going to 1.4ghz at higher voltage but CPU-Z was still showing 3.9ghz at 1.275v every time I rebooted. I tried changing BIOS settings again and then I go back to Windows, open CPU-Z or HWINFO64 and I'm still at 3.9ghz 1.275v.

In other words, changes I made in BIOS were getting completely ignored by the system.

I figured updating the BIOS would solve the problem as I was on an old version. I did, but now all my BIOS settings are back to stock (including RAM running at 1064mhz) and changes I make in BIOS do not affect anything.

So now I'm stuck on stock settings and I can't even enable XMP for my RAM.

Any help?

Just to add, this isn't a windows issue, as I tried running RAM timing that I knew would crash my PC and cause a boot loop but it booted fine and again I was still on stock.

Also, the only thing I can think of that may have caused this problem is that yesterday I added an RGB fan and installed Asrock Polychrome and Asus Aura in order to get the RGB to work, but it didn't, so I uninstalled them both.
 
You most likely will need to clear CMOS. Check your mobo manual on how to do it.

Normally, you will either short two pins (or switch a jumper) and remove battery for 30+ seconds and replace. This will wipe any microcode left over from previous bios and set your system at true default bios. Once done you should be able configure everything again.
