Hero VII won't let me change the manual voltage on my 4790k? Huh?!

Hey all, i'm really confused. I"ve got a guide made for me on how to overclock the 4790k on my Hero VII mobo with the 2702 BIOS right now. I've got it at 4.7ghz but the voltage is on auto and its getting way too warm, like 70c easily and I want to manually adjust the max voltage for the CPU.

But no matter what I do, my BIOS won't let me enter it manually in the drop down menu. What the hell am I missing? Here are screenshots.

Hey IceTr0n what for guide are you following?

Change the cpu core voltage to manual then enter in your value in the cpu core voltage override.

I've helped a lot of people overclock their 4790k's with no problems and we entered the values in the cpu core voltage override.

Are you able to change the cpu core voltage override to manual?

I'm not sure what else to tell you.

Using what keys on the keyboard? No matter what I banged on the keyboard, that voltage number did not change for me.

While the core voltage is highlighted, keep tapping the + key.

Next up, try clearing the CMOS and start over again.

Could one of you look at that PDF document guide that was made for me and see if anything is stated wrong or misleading on it?

Should I just flash to the new 2802 BIOS and try this again? Its still not working for me
