How To: Overclocking Your AMD Processor : Introduction: The Basics Of Overclocking



Tom’s Hardware readers know all about overclocking, of course. In fact, many processor and graphics card reviews would be deemed incomplete without coverage of overclocking potential. Indeed, articles such as the System Builder Marathon series have a long history of specifically valuing performance achieved through overclocking rather than just through stock performance.

If you already consider yourself an enthusiast, pardon a bit of background here--we'll get into the nitty-gritty technical stuff in just a second.

What exactly is overclocking? In a nutshell, the term is used to describe running a component at a higher speed than its specification in an attempt to increase performance. Various computer components can be overclocked, including the processor, memory, and graphics card. And the degree of overclocking can include anything from simply procuring small gains from an inexpensive component all the way to seeking a level of performance way beyond what could even be purchased at that point in time.

I'm having some issues installing the AMD Overdrive utility, I've tried vista and xp compatibility modes, each with and without running as an administrator.

Anyone else able to get the AMD utility to install on 7?


Edit: Found my answer, turns out there is only one thread on Overdrive so the fact that the AMD program will not install under compatibility mode or as admin appears to be common knowledge. Hopefully this solution will work.

You would be more visible if you started your own thread. Mr grim's post is from back in feb and not many ppl will be looking in a thread that is that old.

Just a friendly heads up
