The fluctuation between 1.424 and 1.440 is normal.
If you have set it at 1.5v in bios and have not turned on the cpu overvolt option the board will not let you go over a certain voltage for whichever cpu you have. The Opterons and X2's I believe is around 1.4v, so you're right there.
As mentioned, use the cpu overvolt option in bios. This will give you two benefits, you can overvolt the cpu beyond 1.4v, but not up to 1.6v so don't get to excited just yet. It also employs a second set of 4 phase power mosfets. That board has an 8 phase power design, but only 4 phase (the norm) is used if you don't
utilize the overvolt. and has been stated the overvolt is good for about 0.2v, its not quite 0.2 by my multi-meter readings.
So, turn on the overvolt, and set your vcore down to 1.25v, you should be in the area of 1.424, then work up from there.
