I have downloaded "AMD overdrive" to overclock my AMD 64 AthlonX2 4200+ . But it does not regonize my CPU as an AMD-CPU. My PC is a Dell Deminsion E521 north and south bridges are Nvidia. What is wrong here??? :pt1cable:

If I remember rightly (and I may not), The overdrive utility is only for the phenom line up of cpus. The X2 is not supported.

Does your bios know what cpu you have ?

actually X2s are supported, AMD Overdrive will only work on AMD chipset based motherboards
