I've tried using afterburner and amd catalyst gpu overclocker but neither work, they both won't let me go past the stock clock speed of 1020mhz and 1500mhz for memory. On afterburner all the sliders are to the full right and i can only make it go to 1000mhz on clock speed and 1500mhz on memory speed. What gives? Why doesn't it let me go past stock clocks?

Use only one overclocking settings.
Did you click apply on MSI afterburner?
Try reinstalling your gpu drivers

Your msi afterburner should look like this for AMD cards:

Settings. Go to the tab "User Interface", choose default MSI afterburner skin.
You may want to check the box "extend official overclocking limits" in the general tab
