Does that work fine? I tried MSI's Overclock genie and it was complete rubbish

The CCC will get you Further then the OC Genie i would adjust clock settings and run stability test

That's the best way to do it Download IntelBurnTest - MajorGeeks

Most likely it will in the board but if you are not running a dedicated GPU it should be ok

I never delt with APU so you might be able to do a mild oc but if you don't have an exact number of how much power you were actually using i wouldn't try it unless you plan on stepping up the PSU some

I also have an apu, 1.5ghz stock, can get 2ghz comfortably, 2.5ghz at a push using CCC overdrive

I am buying a 500w Corsair PSU and a dedicated graphics card at X-mas, then I will try and push the clock to 3.0ghz I think.
