Phenom II X4 965 BE

Post by Keean » Tue May 04, 2010 5:33 am

Hey y'all, quick question on drivers.

I was looking on the AMD website, and the only driver I saw that came out after 06' (which is the driver currently on my processor) is one that is from 07'. The only problem being that when I tried to install the driver on to the processor, it told me that it did NOT support my OS, being Windows 7. Anyone have any guidance?

Here's my current driver for the CPU: 6.1.7600.16385

Thanks!

It's to enable Cool N Quiet on older operating systems (XP, Server 2003, Win 2000). Vista and Win 7 have the driver preinstalled.
