Overclocking a HP Pavilion G7 A8-4500M APU under OS Windows 8 ???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have tried various tools like K10stat and FusionTweaker but both state I don't have the correct CPU. I am assuming from what I have read online that this is due to my OS is Windows 8.

Is there any tool out there that will allow me to overclock under Windows 8?

Many thanks!

its not the OS its the Bios that is preventing you from doing it. its All HP`s fault.

It's possible it could be your OS.
@anthonymodrow I overclocked a A8 and A10 on a Acer before without too much issue and played BF3 on low. Don't think it's because it's a HP model.

Most of the time bios prevents you from doing stuff like that tho
