My System Specs

Default Overclocking AMD APU - FM1

I hear that AMD's APU's won't overclock very well if you have AHCI enabled under the sata ports. Anyone know anything more about this?

I would like to overclock the 3670K i'm putting in my son's rig, but I'd also like to run an SSD, so having TRIM enabled under AHCI would be really nice!

Edit: After a little bit of research, it seems that if you push the BCLK over 110 and your SATA port is set to AHCI, it drops the attached drive.

Since I have a BE unit, I'll try leaving the bus where it is, and just increase the multiplier.
