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?
