ROG STRIX B350-F GAMING, Where is VRM Spread Spectrum option?

I can't find it anywhere in BIOS, and this 99.8 Mhz base clock is killing me. Why is it not included? It's not like it is a premium thing anyway. It should be available on all boards.

VRM spread spectrum, that's for reducing interference and vrm whine, right?
are you experiencing any of the above?
no siggy, saw stuff that made me sad.

Nope, that's why I want to disable it. Researched a bit and found out that the reason of my 99.7-99.8 BCLK frequency is caused by this. I wanted to disable it. Heard it was just a feature added by engineers to pass a safety regulation or something like that. So it should be changeable in every kind of motherboard even the cheapest ones. But for some reason it's not in the BIOS where it should be.

I was looking for that feature myself on this board too.
Spread spectrum always helped me reach higher OCs at significant lower voltages.
My i5 2500k back in the day refused to be stable at 4.3GHz with 1.4v, then I disabled spread spectrum got it to 4.5GHz 1.35v.
Now I am want to tweak the extra bit for 4GHz on my R5 1600 and can't because there is no spread spectrum setting.
Simple things like this missing on a ROG board really let me down, since this is my first time building with an Asus board.
