FX 8320e throttling on Asus M5A78L-M/USB3
I recently upgraded my processor to a FX8320e on a Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 and it is throttling a lot under load.
According to the manufacturer, this board is rated up to 140W CPU, and the 8320e is a 95W CPU.
First I thought that the regulators were overheating, but turns out it is software related.
After following the steps I found on this thread, I found out that disabling Turbo Core through AMD Overdrive solves the issue because it also disables APM, but disabling it through the BIOS does not. The problem is that it is not persistent, and I must do it every time the computer starts.

Can this APM function be permanently disabled on this board's BIOS? From what I read on an AMD overclocking guide, it is supposed to set the TDP limit for the processor, and they recommend disabling it for overclocking so it runs without thermal and power limits.

I attached the BIOS to this post.
