  1. Hello,
    I cannot seem to be able to overclock my CPU in the AMD Overdrive. Here is a screenshot:

    need to supply more details here. What exactly do you mean? it wont hold an OC? or the sliders are not active? It looks like you can move the HT ref at least.

    ....and first off, I see you moved the PCIE reference clock to 110Mhz...bad idea. keep it at 100mhz. it does not add any performance to speak of, and most systems will artifact if not crash at anything over 105mhz. I bet when you hit "apply' with the PCIE moved...it just sits there and "thinks" forever...right?
    If this was at 110 when you installed AOD, go into your BIOS and set the PCIE to 100mhz.

    No, the PCIE was at 100 MHz. Now it works. I first overclocked in the BIOS. But when I restart the PC the OC doesn't hold. Any help?

    And about GPU OCing, I have a HD radeon 4200 integrated. How would I overclock that? Through BIOS or how?

    The bios is not holding your settings? are you hitting 'F10' to save the new settings before you exit out?

    NO, not via bios. Via AOD. I cannot save OCs in AOD.

    Anyway, how would I OC my integrated GPU?

    Wait. I don't have the ATI Radeon Xpress 1250. Anyway, how would I OC this.

    It says that my card is not supported. Are there any other programs?

    Overclocking an IGP is useless. You won't see much performance gain out of it.
