    Hello everyone,

    I have very good news about downgrading Intel ME on my Maximus X motherboard
    I am very happy to say that, thanks to Marius4313, I managed to downgrade to the original version that ASUS released with bios 1704.
    That is 11.8.55.3510. And everything changed completely for me, the sound coming from the sound card is now crisp and loud and the stereocrosstalk is just gorgeous again. I also managed to set back my timings to 15-16-36-1T @ 3333 Mhz. I feel my computer smooth and very responsive now all together it works like a charm
    I guess that ASUS tests these firmware thoroughly before releasing them, for full compatibility with their boards. So I suggest you don't install the generic, non-configured firmware before they are official. It made a huge difference for me, at least in my case.

    Again, thank you very much Marius4313!!!

I might wait till Asus releases an me fe that would overwrite the version I installed or am I sol and I need to reflash 11.8.55.3510 for it to install a me fw that asus provides. As of right now my drivers are from this site and current and I don't see any issues. What are the problems people were having with the newer fw that made them want to flash back.

    I disagree MoKiChU, I don't want to be rude or anything, but first of all, you talk about vulnerability.. well my internet service is provided by RCS-RDS as I am from Romania. They have powerful firewall behind the internet. And windows has it's own security patches, not to mention, my ASUS router already has it's own security holes patched.
    And about what you said that there are two parts in Intel ME, then I could think that the updated part that comes with new firmware isn't compatible with part 2, the one configured by ASUS. It too must be made 100% compatible with new firmware. At least that is my assessment on how my computer works with original firmware. Also, I believe that if this was so important and dangerous for users, I's sure ASUS would have updated it by now.

    It's wrong. The Intel ME firmware consists of 2 parts, one CODE (global) and the other DATA (manufacturer specific). The Intel tool used to flash the Intel ME firmware (FWUpdLcl64.exe) only flashes the CODE part, the DATA portion is not affected and remains as ASUS has configured on the latest flashed BIOS.

    But why deleted? Was it unsafe to update? Should I worry if I've already updated?

    I copy paste the solution for those with VIII hero that want to downgrade the firmware.

    I have managed to downgrade thanks to someone in private message. and now instead of having from before ME FW 11.8 + ME FITC 11.0 i have ME FITC version 11.6 (and fw 11.6 too), strange. static audio sound is unchanged but the whole system is a LOT faster, incredible.

    The bios version 0401 had unlocked ME read and write. i used usb flashback to flash it, still had me fw 11.8, then i tried to use the tool under windows but still refused. i then tried to flash bios 3802 with usb flashback and it worked!
