That mentions AMD Overdrive. That program wont work because I don't have a ATI video card.

I installed it and it says, "there is no 7 series chipset installed"

Any idea why it says that? Could it be a driver problem? If so what driver would i need to install/reinstall.

The crosshair II uses a 780a chipset produced by nvidia not AMD/ATI.

Does that mean AMD Overdrive wont work?

only difference is that your cpu frequency will be 200

and your pcie clock will be set to 200 or 400

also possible that your ram voltage will be different

You don't, because your chip isn't unlocked.

You need to do a lot more reading. You have no idea what your doing and unless you want to kill something in your computer, you need to education yourself first. Do a web search for an OC guide for Phenom I and start there.
