A88XM-Gaming, LLC, voltage flucutation and APM master mode

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

Just trying to figure out if there is or will ever been an update to allow control over load line control and APM master mode on the A88XM-Gaming motherboard for FM2+. Having several issues where my 860K cpu with all throttling features disabled, fluctuates roughly 100mhz from 4448 to 4523. I also have some weird issues regarding voltages, 860K stock vcore is 1.32v but when I start using the voltage control, +.01 in the bios immediately nets 1.489 to 1.508v. I am wondering if this is a true voltage output reading or if the motherboard is reading it incorrectly. HWmonitor and CPUZ also back up what I am seeing here.

The fluctuation of the core clock is normal as it s a reflection of the 100Mhz FSB bouncing (multiplie 1Mhz of the FSB oscilation with the CPU core Multiplier set in the BIOS).I have it on my MSI A88X-G41 PC Mate with a 5600K as well ,as with the 860K.Voltages look high ,but you can check them for real with a multimeter , if needed, right on the chokes from the VRM phases outputs.
