For those of you running Bulldozer on 890 Boards...

Sorry if this is a repost.

This app is SUPER useful if you can't otherwise disable APM (Advanced Power Management) in your BIOS:

Me personally, I'm running a new 8120 on a ASUS 890GX (Bios 3027) and I was having major issues getting any overclock stable. I noticed that my CPU was underclocking under load. After some research, I learned this was due to APM. Since my BIOS doesn't allow me to disable APM (only Turbo Core), I thought I was stuck. That is, until I found this lovely app. It's made by the same dude who did PhenomMsrTweaker.

Now I'm sitting pretty at 4.4Ghz @1.425v (1.49v load).

Let me know how it works for y'all, and if I can be of any further assistance.

I have an 890 board and if I ever buy a FX chip I'll try out the software you posted if needed.
