Laptop Undervolting - System default

I have an Asus K70AF laptop with AMD overdrive installed. I can under volt from 1.175V down all the way to 0.985V without problem, but when i restart the system it goes back to 1.175 OCCASIONALLY. The temperature drops with over 10 degrees Celsius because of the lower voltage so its quite important for me to be sure to have it all the time. I always have to check that its at 0.985V. I have crossed the option in overdrive to save last config and i have set 0.985V as default! Are my settings in overdrive somehow incorrect?

Because its a laptop I have no settings in BIOS (not even C´n´Q settings) so everything have to be made from windows. I googled around to see if there were other programs or some help with this but no luck so i posted here to see if anyone had some ideas about this. Perhaps there is a way to tell the whole system that 0.985V is the system default voltage and not 1.175V?

Thanks in advance.
