I just love the diagram tab. Click it and you get a quick overview of that is connected to your PC in an nice graphically enhanced environment. A very nice way to see how your hardware is connected and thus visualized.

Here I have the 955BE processor active. If you disable performance mode and flick the little green button, the processor will become very power efficient, as it will go as low as 800 MHz for it's clock down sequence.

There's new improved fan control functionality as well. You can of course have the fans regulated automatically, but with the more noisy fans, you can manage them manually, as long as the are PWM ready of course.

The tool has many many options and features, so much more even that we can't show all of them in an already large review. But obviously overclocking and tweaking is of what Overdrive is really designed for. Let's go the the next page and see where we end with our overclock.
