    Hi there people,

    One little question here: The new ME firmware update pushes version 11.8.50.3399 into our system. Since Intel's last oficial released FW version is 11.8.50.3425, Would it be ok for me to manually update to this last version? is there any incompatibility? I'm familiar to manual update, so that won't be an issue. It's just that I'm wondering the reason to get this specific version against the last one.

    Thanks for your time

    I posted this under the Maximus VIII thread:

    For those of you still getting "can't open asio.sys (2) error. I finally got the FW to update, here's what I did:

    1.) Unpack the MEUpdateTool .rar file to a formatted USB flash drive.
    2.) Temporarily disable your AV.
    3.) Once unpacked to flash drive, right click on the MEUpdateTool.exe file and run as an Admin.

    Hope this helps...

    This article at Tom's Hardware describes the need for this update I reckon. Vulnerabilities in Intel's ME firmware for 6, 7 & 8 series CPU's. The ME firmware update closes these.

    http://www.tomshardware.com/news/int...hes,35971.html

    And it links to a tool on Intel's website to see if your PC is still vulnerable. If your PC is still vulnerable, then it's safe to say the ME update didn't go through.

    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27150

    I'm not at home, so I can't see if my system is still vulnerable or not.

    If you are using ASUS' last FW update, your system will still be vulnerable:

    ASUS' FW version is 11.8.50.3399, which has the vulnerability.

    But, if you update to Intel's last FW:

    It's version is 11.8.50.3425, which is free of this problem.

    Why do you recommend using a USB flash drive rather than unpacking the file to a hard drive?

    When I do this, I get a Warning!!! saying to Please check MEI driver is installed. I don't see that in the drivers download section.

    Since the ASUS FW tool only updates to xx.x.xx.3399, how did you update to 11.8.50.3425?
