    Question Please Help

    Hello My Friend, I wanted to ask you if this process is possible with an ASUS Sabertooth Motherboard Z97 Mark 1 and a Core I7 4770K? I read your instructions and I think the process is simple but I would like to confirm that it can be done with this particular model.

    On the other hand I would like to ask you if something goes wrong, is it possible to revert the process by installing the BIOS again without patching?

    Thanks for the help.

    Face up the facts. ASUS support is basically the worst you can expect from from a hardware producer... or worse. I'm curious how long they survive such a behavior or actually they totally rely on kiddies buying RGB stuff.

    I wonder if this version even addresses the speculative execution vulnerabilities. If you look at the release notes for that BIOS it only says "Improve system stability". Could they have used a more generic or useless description? Another example of bad communication by Asus.

    To the OP that I replied to above, it appears that your guess about the Z170 update was probably correct because I see there's a similar update for the Z270 now. They both say "Improve system stability" and I don't see a .txt file in the .zip or anywhere that gives more specific information. I was wondering which variants of the attack this provides protection against but I guess I can just test after applying the updated BIOS.
