I am using Overdrive. Okay, I tell the program to rasie the multiplier X.5 and hi the 'apply' button, and the program tells me that the target speed is 3400 MHz but the current speed is 3200 MHz.  How do actually get the computer to lock in the new overclock?  Do I have to tell it to apply the settings on the next boot and then I'll have the right speed then?  I'm concerned because I don't know the best way to do it.

Don't use software to overclock, use your motherboard's BIOS.

That Is a good question to ask. I have the new AMD FX-8320 with the current AOD software. Whenever I try to use the VOLTAGE OC slider, my computer takes a sec to reset it self. (along with a brief screen blinking off and then back on) If I have moved the VOLTAGE slider more than 1.4025, then my New FX-8320 get's stuck at 2.7 or 2.8 CLOCK SPEED (depending on my OC of the system bus. I can overclock fine using Gigabyte's Easy Tune 6 software.

Here is a list of the basic's for you guy's to trouble shot

AMD FX-8320 Clocked @4.75 - Voltage @1.55 - FSB @250 Water Cooled

Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 version 1 - All power saving features are turned off and LLC is set to extream.

Corsair Vengance DDR3-1600 @2000 - 10-11-10-29-1T Water Cooled

2x Gigabyte Radeon HD-7950 Version 1 (With no voltage lock) stock - Core @1000 - Mem @1250 OCed to Core @1200 - Mem @1385

Power Supply - PC Power & Cooling - Silencer MKIII - 1200 Watts
