    dx58so2 + 980x = cannot change base multiplier

    craczko

      Hi,

       

        I have a new DX58SO2 board (latest bios - 0765) and 980X CPU. I understand that, being an Extreme Edition CPU, it has an unlocked multiplier. Why is it then that the board BIOS does not allow me to increase the base CPU multipier over 25 but says i can only increase the Turbo Boost multipliers. What's the point of paying $300 for an Extreme Edition board if you can't take advantage of the most basic feature of a $1000 Extreme Edition CPU?

       

        Please fix the DX58SO2 BIOS to allow it to take advantage of CPUs with unlocked multipliers and allow the base multiplier to be changed.

       

      Regards,
