AMD Overdrive: turbo boost wont stay off!!

So a while ago I decided to enable turbo core on my cpu through AMD Overdrive, due to having a crappy HP OEM motherboard that cant overclock. Anyway, temps stated getting a bit too hot for comfort (60c and up) so i decided to turn it off again, bringing my temps back down to a safe 40-50 degrees while gaming.

However, every time I either restart my computer or put it to sleep, AMD Overdrive reverts back to having turbo boost on, despite hitting Apply several times. What can I do to fix this?

  1. Change it in BIOS instead.
  2. You may also need to UNINSTALL it before setting the BIOS back to Factory Defaults to prevent it from resetting things but I've never used that software.

    Once you reset the BIOS you may have a few settings that need to be altered such as memory frequency (i.e. if at 1333MHz and should be 1600MHz), drive BOOT ORDER etc.

    The HP BIOS is horrible and only allows you to change basic things like date and time, so that sort of out of the question.

    If you are running windows 8 it could be an admin rights problem.
    Navigate to this folder:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Core-Static
    Find CCC.exe, right click>properties>compatibility tab
    Tick the 'run this program as an administrator' option and hit ok.
    Do the same thing for MOM.exe

    You may have to restart the pc for the changes to take effect, then try disabling overdrive, restart or sleep to see if it fixes it.

    I had the same issue with msi afterburner not enabling oc settings on start up, this seemed to have fixed my issue.
  5. This maybe a stupid question but have you tried cleaning out your computer? A lot of time the accumulation of dust can cause over heating issues.

    I cleaned it out maybe 3 months ago but i dont think there would be much more dust since then.
