It is very unlikely you can overclock an atom system. The problem is that the mainboard comes with it's Atom soldered on already, and to keep things cheap, the BIOS of the board is also kept as spartan as possible, so there are no overclocking features included. Besides, both are a matching pair, and overclocking would break that match.

It would have to be in the bios settings of the motherboard and as specified above it probably isn't an available feature
