Asus A88x Gamer - AMD Overdrive issue

Hi,

 

Does AMD have any plans to update OverDrive this year?

In particular fixing the issue where it crashes PC's with the AMD A88X (Bolton D4) Chipset.

 

After installing OverDriveI double click the desktop icon, accept the disclaimer and it begins to initialise. During this process my computer crashes and reboots. Does anyone have suggestions on what I could try or what I might be doing wrong. I have tried disabling all the odd bios functions etc. I notice the OverDrive services are running after the reboot.

 

Specs:

 

Graphics Chipset

AMD Radeon (TM) R9 390 Series (Latest Crimson Drivers)

 

CPU Type

AMD Athlon(tm) X4 860K Quad Core Processor

 

Windows Version

Windows 10 Pro 64bit

 

MainBoard

Asus A88X Gamer

 

Power

Cougar 850w

 

Ram

4 x 4g HyperFury Blue

 

 

I read this on the website for compatibility.
