So last night I was having a look through my BIOS and I came across a little thing called Gear Ratio. I had a look online about it and how to use it with my i7-3820. Apparently it was simple to use. Just increase it from 1.00 to 1.25 and I would get wonderful overclocking results without having to change my multiplier. FAIL. After saving in BIOS, the ALX would not turn back on. Instead it starts, then stops, then starts, then stops and so on and so forth without getting to the BIOS. I have a sneaky suspicion that i have done something terrible to my mobo and/or PSU.
