    Try UBU again but use BIOS Flashback to flash the modified CAP file instead of EZ Flash.

    And looks like he has BIOS Flashback. Probably doesn't know how to use it.

    Hardly likely given the **fact** that they have already sent SKYL and KBL uCode fixes to their partners in April/May. In our case, it's Asus who has been dragging their feet instead of releasing the...

    I read it when it was in its original location. Didn't make sense there either.

    This post makes no sense given the information shared here already. Two or three days ago and it would have made more sense.

    Those who paid less for the I5 were probably always the big winners in gaming circles. This hyper-threading debacle is the icing on the cake. It's probably the real or imaginary muted smirks from I5...

    Yeah, this Debian advisory indicates the status of fixed KBL microcode;

    Supposedly, only system vendors like Asus have access to fixed KBL microcode at this time.

    Yeah, deploying BA using UBU 1.69 is a piece of cake. Only glitch is having to copy MMTool from a previous UBU version or elsewhere. AMI balked about distributing their program as a UBU component.

    Links to reliable sources? Otherwise, this could be just hearsay.

    Thanks for the update. Bottom line **seems** to be that we can **infer** that version BA has the fix but it's dated 4/2017 and not 6/2017.

    Z170 SKYL users would probably be better off if there were separate Z170 BIOSs for KBL and SKYL. A SKYL user who wants the latest like Speed Shift etc. shouldn't have to be tripping over KBL...

    We're on the same page except I load optimized defaults, save and reboot before flashing to ensure that stock settings are in place. Entering the BIOS with CPU or memory OCed probably isn't a good...

    Asus fixed for other boards. I believe 1003 has the fix for Z170-A but others have reported even worse issues with that BIOS and have flashed back to 901. The problem is not the board, it's the BIOS....
