    I am looking to run AMD OverDrive utility for my motherboard but it doesnt seem to run with windows 10 or i am missing a crucial driver. The only driver i see missing is the Storage controller- if anyone knows how to fix that or what file i should use thats great but not really what im seeking.

    I have a Biostar TA790GX3 AM2+ motherboard and im pretty sure overdrive for the system has worked before but it wont now. I am running windows 10 with amd athlon x2 5200 with 6 gig of 1066mhz ram.

    It begins to initialize and then it gives the windows 10 crash warning asking me if i want to debug.

    I have tried running it in windows 7 and 8 environments to no avail.

    Thanks in advance, and even if you dont offer your help, have a good Christmas!

    I don`t know why do you think of storage controller driver. AMD OD is about CPU, chipset and RAM tweaks.
    What does it write in the window with the crash info?

    Check your event log for details of the crash.

    Overdrive works perfectly fine for me on Win 10 Pro

    ang1dust, All the overdrive settings regarding CPU/RAM/Chipset can be made in the BIOS or UEFI BIOS instead of overdrive. If you want the storage driver can be found near the bottom-right of the AMD drivers page, which list ACHI or RAID. Here is a link to the Windows 10 64 bit version: Here
