You can't overclock outside of the BIOS in Linux, but many Linux users are old-school and would want to OC using the BIOS anyway.
Yes, i know there are Lm_Sensors but with the k10 family i've got many problems to get them works. Talking about overclock, i'm a great fan of bios overclocking, however AOD is usefull to test quickly the performance of the CPU (or to disable temporarily C&Q that have a strange behaviour under Ubuntu Jaunty 64 (my CPU run all the time at 800Mhz and when it is at full load the maximum frequency is 2100Mhz). Anyway i think that porting AOD under Linux (together with better Ati drivers and catalist) would be a good choice to become even more, linux friendly.
Dont' you think?
