i have a radeon HD 4830 pcie 512mb gddr3, the specs say GPU clock 575mhz , memory clock 900mhz-1800mbps. now in the ati ccc i enabled the ati overdrive i bumped the GPU clock up to 650mhz , and the memory up to 1100mhz, tested, accepted , applied changes.. and at the bottom of the ati overdrive screen it stills says current values GPU clock 160mhz , memory clock 250mhz. i have ati ccc 9.1.... ( i do have a 2nd matching HD 4830 to run crossfire ) but i want to find out why these clocks are low.. ( tried both cards same readings ) i would love the input..

Welcome to the forums!

Your GPU's are designed to underclock when not in use or under low usage.
As the CCC will show you the Current Values, you will see the low power clock speeds.
As soon as you start a game, both cards will automatically revert to your specified 650/1100Mhz.

outlw6669 is exactly right. When your GPU isn't working, it's relaxing. When a game or anything graphically intensive comes up, it'll kick into full gear at the clocks you specified.
