Why is there not any new updates for the NB, chipset or any drivers for the motherboard, any than the ones that where included with the installation CD which is more than three years now?

Even if you go to the product site, you will find the latest drivers were from Winter 2011.

I thought those drivers where the same as "AMD Catalyst™ Display Driver". So I guess this is specific for the MB. So do I still need the drivers BlackOmega linked me to?

They are for the Southbridge and USB filters, though it didn't make a difference for me whether or not they were installed. However you can find the Sound drivers and Ethernet drivers there, which are better than the stock Windows drivers.

Whether you need them or not is debatable. However, usually the newer drivers are more optimized. They may help with stability.

I might be the last overclocker for the MSI 790FX-GD70 yet I'm doing it now and I'm starting slow since I'm a novice.
With starting slow I'm going to start with the CPU using AMD Overdrive Utility "Auto Clock".
My question is in the Performance Control/Auto Clock/Advanced Options there is a Clock Step being able to alter from 1-5 MHz. What should I enter there and what is Voltage Boost, is that anything I need to tick?

I would suggest doing overclocking through BIOS. But I also started my overclocking experience with AMD Overdrive, although since I haven't used that utility in over two years, I can't help you with the settings on there.

I would be against any type of automatic overclocking, it's really just better to do things manually, so you learn things yourself. For starters: in the BIOS, you can start raising CPU speed via the CPU multiplier and/or the FSB speed (normally at 200mhz), this means your CPU clock speed will be 200mhz x multiplier, (Ex: 200mhz x 20 for 4ghz). I can help you out more tonight if you don't get it, as I've got school to go to and a midterm to do.

I managed to find out about the Voltage Boost "This will allow OverDrive to increase power to the processor to fuel the extra speed."

This is what I got:
Quote:
The result of last successful tune is:

Last CPU clock is: 2750 MHz
Last HT Link ref. clock is: 220 MHz
Last CPU multiplier is: 12.5 X

So I'm doing 2750/12,5= 220 Mhz

Since I can't change the multiplier in Overdrive more than 12,5 x, is changing the Base Clock I should do and change it to 220 MHz?
And what about the HT Link ref? Oh I see everything changed automatic. Although does the HT Link have anything to do with the NB?

Edit:


The only benchmark I ran after the OC was RAM since it's the fastest to do now, and I could see improvement after the CPU OC.
I just can't figure out what it was that raised RAM clock speed to 1446 MHz
