Explain "downloaded a program to help me get all of my cores on my processor to work 100%"
It is a program called "ParkControl" and it offers you to choose how much work is done of the proccessors. Hope that was the answer to your questions.

Enabling all cores does not over work a CPU. What these programs do is fix a problem in Windows where it can park some cores if the load on the CPU is low and then not enable the cores when needed. It's a Windows problem that occurs with Win 7-8. Win10 can also create core parking issues because it parks cores based on the power performance setting used.
You may want to uninstall any non-Windows program for core parking. You should also check your CPU temp under heavy load. If you do not have sufficient cooling, the APU will down clock and run slowly until it cools down. The max operating temp for your APU is 90C.
For Win 7-8 there is a Windows Hot Fix that has been used successfully, at the link below. Use the correct Hot Fix for your version of Windows.
