    Thanks guys,

    So then according to your comments re-flashing BIOS with an old, Spectre mitigated BIOS (vers 3902 for R5E), will not be detrimental to the more recent mitigations that are available...

    Windows updates to cpu microcode

    I have an old BIOS (3701) on the R5E that pre-dates the announcement of Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. A year ago GRC InSpectre found that I was vulnerable to Spectre, which requires a cpu...

    Hi moheban,

    I have only read and programmed BIOS chips out of circuit. I don't know why there was a problem with the dual-BIOS board. Does your SPI EEPROM flash device have the spec data needed to...

    That's interesting. The article in TechPowerUp describes the exact symptom of the ASUSUpdateCheck.exe file reappearing in C;\Windows\System32 folder at every reboot no matter what you do.

    So you guys don't see any BIOS setting that enables/disables ASUS LiveUpdate or Armoury Crate?

    Maybe it is a good idea to move the post to software with a different heading, like "AsusUpdateCheck.exe reappears after reboot" or something. Surely others have this issue and are unaware. It would...

    Hi Ken429.

    Glad that VirusTotal scans are clean on your ASUSUpdateCheck.exe file. Maybe the most likely explanation is the one in that TechPowerUp article: ASUS Armoury Crate or Live Update is...

    Hello Ken429,

    I unistalled AI Suite 3 and that file does not persist. See this TechPowerUp article, the problem may be related to ASUS Armoury Crate, and you have to disable that to keep the exe...

    Thank you Dimitrios1971, I see that. It looks like if one is interested in hardware telemetry, the future is with ASUS Node. I don't yet see any 3rd party devices for it yet, but in the future they...

    Thank you Silent Scone.

    This ASUS Node sounds exciting: open source protocol for hardware telemetry and control? This opens up a lot of possibilities for 3rd party monitors/controllers or maybe...

    Thanks Vlada011. Also the Zenith Extreme and Zenith Alpha don't have ROG_EXT. I am just wondering if newer mobos are less likely to have ROG-EXT than older mobos, if ASUS is abandoning it over time.

  13. Newer ASUS motherboards without ROG EXT header for OC Panel?

    I use the ASUS OC Panel mounted in a 5.25" bay just for readouts of the CPU temp and cpu fan rpm, plus clock frequency and multiplier. Is it my imagination or are the newer ASUS motherboards without...

    Thanks to you both for this thread that specializes in the Crosshair VI Extreme. Based on your comments I downloaded the new BIOS and chipset driver. This board is not as common as the C6H so it is...

    Thanks very much jorgerod! This is very good to know.

    BTW, I read in Maximum PC magazine that there are now about 27 variants of Spectre, so it may be impossible to fix these vulnerabilities...

    Thanks Arne,

    I guess I should update the BIOS though it can be risky. I read that there have been no known exploits of Spectre in the wild. I also read that the fears of much degraded performance...

    Hi Morkrah,

    So glad that you were able to get both cards working at x16. Must have been a bad contact on some pins. Good thing to know it can happen and how to fix it. I don't know much about XMP...

    Also try and see if there is a BIOS setting that forces the x16 slot #3 to become x8 mode. If none of these things work, it must be bad Karma:rolleyes:

    Hello,

    Just some off the cuff suggestions. The i7-5930K supports 40 PCIE lanes while the i7-5920K supports only 28 lanes. The behavior you describe would be expected for a 5920K, see the attached...
