U should read some guides if u re unexpirienced in ocing first.

Also i see u didnt mention much about u re memory. U said 8Gb but not brand, speed, rated timming.

U have locked multiplier cpu so u OC by increasing u re "Internal Core Clock"
U enter bios by hitting del during POST. Go to u re "overclocking" tab in bios.

Find "Adjust Internal Core Clock"
Default is 100 increase it slowely.
default is 100 x 26 = 2600Mhz u re cpu speed
if u increase it by 5(from 100 to 105) u re CPU will go up for 5x26=130 MHz ..... 2600+130= 2730MHz

So go up small steps 5 by 5 at start.


Since u got CPU-z post here SS of "CPU" tab and also "memory" and "spd" tab please. Then we can move on.

Also read u re "Curent NB Frequency" it should be on overclocking tab in bios

Your ram is running at 1333mhz instead of it's rated frequency of 1600mhz. From what I've heard higher frequency ram usually benefits an APU, especially if your running the IGP. Nevertheless, you should run your ram at 1600mhz.

Voltages are very nice. Dont worry u can up it more when needed if u re temps arent 2 high. U ram is fine too. Do not up it to 1600 just yet from what i understandu dont use iGPU u use discrete graphics card (geforce gtx 550 ti ). Leave it for now so u have plenty of headroom for raising "Internal Core Clock"

So just keep raising freq.little by little and add voltage when needed. Keep an eye on temps under load.

I think u could do 3.4 to 3.6GHz witharound 1.42v

Good luck write if u get in trouble.

EDIT: Btw u do not have to runprime95 for so long UNTIL u find frequency u will keep. Run for 10 to max 20 mins if it doesnt fail push more if it fails add more voltage, run prime 10-20 mins and keep going. Once u think u had enough (voltage 2 high, or 2 high temps) run prime95 for few hours.
Just saying theres no need to run few hours of prime for frequnecies that u wont stay at.
