Unhappy Hypertransport question

Below you will find the specs of my mobo. However until yesterday I had HT set on 4x from bios since 5x is not available. Yesterday after installing Ntune 5 I raise to 5x and had no issues. My question is; why is this 5x missing from the bios if it's there in the specs as the mobo supports 1Ghz speed?

• Supports 64-bit AMD® Athlon™ 64FX/64 processor (Socket 939)
• Supports 3000+ (D0), 3200+ (D0), 3500+, 3800+, 4000+, FX53 and FX55

• nVIDIA® nForce3 Ultra Chipset
- HyperTransport link to the AMD Athlon 64/Athlon 64FX CPU
- HyperTransport supporting speed up to 1GHz (2000MT/s)
- AGP3.0 8X interface at 533MT/s (million transfers per second)
- Two independent SATA controllers, for four drives
- IEEE 802.3 NVIDIA MAC for 1000BASE-T
- Dual Fast ATA-133 IDE controllers

Main Memory
• Supports dual channel DDR 266/333/400, using four 184-pin DDR DIMMs.
• Supports the memory size up to 4GB
• Supports 2.5v DDR SDRAM DIMM
I've heard that linux community came up with better implemented security in it's latest Linux Mint Gold version, it's actually preventing the user to log in, thus posing 0 risk in contamining the computer with malware! Well done to the open source community!
