Lightbulb Bios APIC setting on 8RDA+

APIC setting in BIOS

After reading a thread about disabling APIC BIOS setting for ABIT NF7-S, i have i try to disable this setting in 8rda+ BIOS. After that i have notice stability improovement with high FSB settings. Before i was stable 201 FSB with 3DMark2003, games and other applications and now i am stable with 205 FSB and i'm going to try higher. But be careful before disable APIC in Bios you have to follow a specific process if you want Windows to boot properly.
You must change in Device Manager the ACPI Uniprocessor Driver with Advanced Power and Configuration Interface (ACPI) PC Driver and after rebooting go to BIOS and disable APIC.
