    The latest for the RVE is 3902, it's a "beta" bios, and it's from April and therefore doesn't actually contain the latest Intel microcode which came out in August.

    I use an adblocker, but it was Firefox's Tracking protection that got me. I had it set to "always." Switching it to "only in private windows" (and not using a private window to access Asus) fixed...

    Of course there's a difference now. There's a known exploit with example code. Security through obscurity works up until the moment it isn't obscure anymore.

    I think all future buyers should learn this lesson about what the ASUS premium price tag buys you in terms of support. The question is, will they? We tend to be awfully short sighted when the next...

    If they don't, I wouldn't be surprised if those of us in the US could take Asus to small claims court for diminished value.

    You're not paying attention. Intel pulled the microcode and told OEMs to back it out. It causes reboots and data loss.

    I think Torvalds is talking about the software changes, not the CPU microcode that is needed for Spectre variant 2 (and apparently somewhat buggy).

    Don't be so picky with lawyer-speak. If the expected number of reboots is 0 then any reboots are higher than expected. Remember, admit nothing, deny everything, speak as vaguely as possible.

    If you go to walmart.com and search rampage v extreme they seem to still be selling them. I'm not sure how Asus could get away with not supporting them.

    3801 came out in the beginning of December. No, it doesn't have the microcode for Spectre.

    The thing that gets to me is that we chose Intel and paid the Intel premium for their chips because of the performance they provided. That performance was in some part provided by speculative...

    If this is still true for the r5E then I'm still clueless what bad means. I'm stable at 4.3GHz and DDR4-2800 on strap 100. That's bad? What would the 125 strap give me other than the loss of...

    Not just that, but there have been a lot of BIOS "ram compatibility" changes since this post originated so how much is still true?

    Honestly, the DDR4-X at BCLK 100 equals DDR4-Y at BCLK 125 always...

    With 3701 on my 5960 I've got a stable overclock with CPU 4.3 GHz @1.248V and Cache 4.2 GHz @1.206V. With 3801 it's not stable. So back to 3701 for me.

    My experience has been that Asus has always been inconsistent with where a new BIOS shows up. Eventually it gets everywhere but it takes a while. The versions on the R5E and R5E/U3.1 pages have...

    Are you sure it's disappearing, or could it just be under some OS pulldown entries and not under others? That's pretty common for the haphazard way ASUS updates that site.

    I've got the rampage V, but I presume your bios works the same way. When they say the step is 1mV, they mean you can enter a number that is .001 or .002, but not .0015. The step is 1mV. Your...
