280X Overclocking issues

I'm trying to overclock my two 280X's to run some benchmarks, however the first card refuses to go up to my set Core Clock of 1200. The second card is clocking up fine. The first card just will not go above 850Mhz. Have i done something wrong or missed something? My brother suggested it could be a bios problem.

It will only go to the set frequency if needed. Try setting 1200 and then running valley.

This is why you should not get an FX CPU for ANY scenario other than rendering on a budget http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/286142-fx-8350-r9-290-psu-requirements/?p=3892901 http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/266481-an-issue-with-people-bashing-the-fx-cpus/?p=3620861
