    Which utility for AMD 790GX chipset ???

    As many will know I have the J&W 790GX Extreme Motherboard. Now this motherboard has a jumper for 'normal or Overdrive' which I have eventually found out is to be set to overdrive if your using ACC.

    What I don't understand is the manufacturers have said to use Ntune to check ACC is enabled on a board which has an AMD chipset ??? Common sense is telling me I should use AMD's AOD software for AMD powered motherboards.

    That's what I would do as well. Why there's even a jumper to enable it is well beyond me.

    That is what I asked but, the reply did not answer my question. They merely said "Jumper is for ACC function" Which tells me nothing. I wanted to know why they have it and other 790GX boards don't have it.

    Once when I enabled ACC and started the AOD software, the Utility GUI was red with 'unlocked' or something in big letters across the top but, I've never managed to get it to do this since.
