AMD 7850K Throttling when IGPU Utilized

My AMD 7850K throttles when I try to play games. The IGPU stays at 351MHz and the CPU clocks down to 3GHz intermittently. It seems that this is a common problem. There are many people on the web having this issue with their APU system.


Any solutions? I didn't find any solutions on the web. I tried disabling Turbo and APM (application management control) from the motherboard BIOS, but that didn't have any effect and it still throttled. Everything is on stock. From the AMD overdirve software, my thermal margins are always decent (~40+ Celsius during gameplay) I don't think I've ever seen my GPU hit 720MHz actually.
