EC AOD-ACC Support
EC AOD-ACC is described as Embedded Controller for AMD OverDrive- Advanced Clock Calibration, which is the newest feature comes from AMD SB750/ SB710 SouthBridge chip, destined for the AMD Black Edition CPU to overclock through BIOS setting or AMD OverDriveā„¢ utility further than was previously possible.

No luck .. for the simple reason this motherboard doesn't accept any 125w CPUs ... the phenoms X2s
are 80w CPU's and as soon as you unlock the 4 cores
it becomes 125w.
