Thank you very much to Al Hill for the information posted above.
I just wanted to confirm the information above as correct, there are some tools that have misreadings.

If the processor passed the test it should be fine problem might be related to the BIOS and in that case the best thing to do will be to get in contact with ASUS directly:
