    After lengthy tests, I do not recommend upgrading to the microcode to 0x84.
    Serious problems with stability are observed, for example, when the instructions are used AES-NI.
    With the load for two days, the system can turn itself off (does not respond to the power button), to start it will be necessary to de-energize the system completely, and then turn it on in normal mode.
    There are still situations when the system itself turns off and immediately turns on.
    The bug in the microcode resembles the operation of the option "forcereset" for the ME FW, just a similar behavior of the system...
    Bug is observed on all KBL processors with microcode 0x84, to solve the problem helps rollback to 0x80 and younger.
    The bug is very easy to identify, you can, for example, run a mining on an algorithm Cryptonight up to a day or two.
    In general, Intel again spoiled everything!

    udp. By the way, on the MSI motherboards z270 with a microcode 0x84 there is an error in the logs of the operating system "Power management functions of processor 1 in the performance state in group 0 are disabled due to a problem with the embedded software", on the Asus there is no such entry in the log. Well, it's just for information...

    Far from all are faced with problems of arbitrary system shutdown on new microcodes, since the scripts of their appearances are specific. But not the fact that this scenario is the only one. Intel once again failed its partners...
