    Sloppy (rushed???) indeed. The January microcode updates were no longer being offered when I checked the available Intel processor downloads today. I suspect this is a result of Intel's recent acknowledgement that the updates result in reboots for some processors. I haven't had any reboot issues so far after the update (fingers crossed) with my Ivy Bridge-E processor. So I'm going to stick with it for now.

    The 20% drop in performance from the PCMark 10 benchmark definitely didn't give me a warm fuzzy feeling. But I still have some testing do before I decide if the patch is going to affect day to day use. I planned on doing some more benchmarks tonight, but the release of a new windows insider preview version put those plans on hold for now. I'll post back once I've been able to spend some more time evaluating system performance.

    All BIOS files have been updated. There are a couple of older boards that had no new microcode. - However, on those boards there were other modules to update, so they are updated.
    Sweet. I updated my bios last night - Nvme now working with csm off. Good to know the other modules have been updated as well. Not tested for any performance drop, like you bolts i'm hoping that there might be a later release with less of a performance drop...

    Thanks again for the stirling work.

    If you want to upgrade MEI firmware
    Open the OneDrive link in my original post and look for file called: Intel MEI (Firmware) 8.1.65.1586.zip

    Download and extract the contents of that file.
    Then open METool.exe as administrator. Computer will then reboot and upgrade MEI firmware.

    Download problem was using Edge,,,seems it might have been a security issue that it complained about. Using Chrome the download was ok,

    In my opinion, I would wait to flash bios until Intel gets their bugs sorted.. shortly after I modded all the files with the latest microcode, Intel pulled ALL the new microcode files. Sheesh.
