Speed isn't set anywhere in Windows, and it doesn't matter what your BIOS is set to as far as bus speed and multiplier when you format your computer and load an OS.

What you're seeing is the other hardware you have installed isn't capable of being stable at the 1.7 setting. Which is why it freezes. Sometimes you can overclock and it'll just cause the computer to degrade slowly over time and need to reboot more often. I've done it so badly in the past that the computer wouldn't even post. But something in your system is limiting the stability at the 1.7 clockspeed. RAM is the most common culprit as it's very speed sensitive.
