Sorry for the double post.
I went and tried to update my BIOS and the EZ flash tool told me I already had version 1604 (the newest one I could find, which I was going to install). So bios isn't the issue... but the description of version 1604 on Ausus's website said something interesting:
1.Remove Auto hide Turbo V adjust Extreme CPU Ratio option if CPU Ratio not "Auto" function.
2.Remove Auto hide BIOS setup items with Extreme CPU "TurboMode Core Ratio Offset" if CPU Ratio not "Auto" function.
3.Remove Auto Disable HotkeyOC function for Extreme CPU if CPU Ratio not "Auto" funciton.
So this implies that turbo mode, as well as some other things, are only available if I set the cpu ratio to auto. I looked in the bios and verified this. So I tried setting cpu ratio to auto and turned turbo on. Now my multiplier seems locked at 21, even under load. What gives? Why can't I get it to stay at 22 under load?
If this topic would be better for a motherboard thread, let me know and I'll take it there.Edited by mtwieg - 1/27/11 at 6:11am
