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?

probably because unless you run a very high-end system it seems to make very little difference running a 5x multiplier.

OKIDOKI I just found out that there are some hidden options in the bios and I have to press Shift+F2 and Ctrl+F4 so when I get home I'll see if I can destroy my rig

Yes this combination enables hidden options for MSI mainboards.
I added this in Guidemania in BIOS chapters.
But the maximum speed for Hyper Transport should be up to 1GHz = Hyper Transport Ratio * FSB (or HTT).
