With my new Phenom II 940 BE + 790GX motherboard, i'm unable to get overdrive to even run, and it doesn't seem that cool and quite it working either, and suggestions?


With overdrive it tells me i don't have an AMD cpu, as i look at the Big Phenom II sicker on my tower in disbelief.
I have the latest CPU drivers from AMD and am using winxp32, my laptop also using the exact same install disc of win32 (fresh of a month ago) shows cool and quite working just fine, no check on overdrive since Turion X2s can't use it.

I mainly plan to use overdrive as a system health monitor i don't play around with OCing much myself.
