Hey, 

So i'm trying to get my A6 APU bumped up to 3.8 from the stock 3.6. But, it will only let me go to 4.3Ghz, which is the A10 overclock setting. When I checked after one game of starcraft, the temp was 108 degrees celcius!

Can anyone tell me how I turn the power down?

I'm using the ASUS F2 A85-M/CSM motherboard with UEFI bios.

What program are you using to overclock? or are you using the BIOS?

It's not 108 decrees Celsius, it would melt things if it were. Also you should NOT be overclocking with the stock A6 piece of garbage tiny aluminum heatsink.

No, I am not using the stock cooler. Have one with copper heat pipes.

I am using the AMD Catalyst. It was working for a few days, then went back up to 4400. All i'm trying to do is get the 3.8 boost it said on the box.
