    Cool over the top

    (1)to go over the top, (2) to do overdrive or to make overdrive or to overdrive ( I'm not sure which one is correct, and (3) to go overboard; do all these three expressions have the same meaning and can be used interchasngeably ? The rough idea that I can have of allthe three expressions is "to overdo something". Am I correct ?

    go overboard - to be too excited or enthusiastic about something or about doing something : "Donít go overboard on fitness. "

    go into overdrive - to start being very active and working very hard: "As the wedding approached, the whole family went into overdrive."

    over the top - done to an exaggerated degree and with too much effort: 'His performance is completely over the top."
