Don't use task manager for that, use CPUID. Oh and this APU is kinda good at overclocking, it goes to 4.3 very easy, but mine doesn't want to go to 4.4 that easy.

Sorry buddy, but your motherboard is not compatible with this APU. You need a new motherboard that has FM2 socket, that mean you will buy new PC

Neither will the 280X for the most part, this is a decent processor, not weak by any means at all.
