I've been using a program my Asus P6T motherboard came with called EPU-6 engine to overclock my processor by 8%. I never had a problem with it when I was using Vista 64-bit. I installed Windows 7 64-bit a few days ago. EPU still seemed to work but I would get a "can't open Asio.sys" error message when booting up windows which I think is related to the EPU thing. I uninstalled the EPU program and reinstalled it and kept getting the message. Also last night I tried playing Left 4 Dead 2 for the first time in a while and enemy zombie movement was very jerky, I tried a lot of stuff and couldn't fix it. Just now I uninstalled the EPU-6 engine to see if it would do anything and the enemies are moving like normal again.
ANYWAY...now that I can't use the EPU-6 engine to OC my processor, I'd like to do it another way but I've never tried anything else. I had it OC'd to 8% and it helped make a lot of my games like Prototype and others play without a lot of annoying stutters.
The P6T also has a program called TurboV which lets you OC, but it seems to do it by voltage so it's a bit complicated. If anyone can tell me how to use it I'd be really grateful.
OR really I guess the safest thing is to OC it through the BIOS setup or whatever, but I've never done this before so I'll need some advice and hand-holding.
