    You often do not get these microcode updates from Microsoft automatically through Windows Update - you need to fetch the update and install it manually. As mentioned, if you uninstall the microcode update, it won't be loaded and may leave you open to someone exploiting the vulnerability it protected against.
    Thanks guys,

    So then according to your comments re-flashing BIOS with an old, Spectre mitigated BIOS (vers 3902 for R5E), will not be detrimental to the more recent mitigations that are available from Windows update. That's what I needed to know.

    you required most recent intel microcode must be added to the Bios firmware.
    ask the newest bios from asus support team.
    Also you must add some registry keys for both spectra and meltdown vulnerability.
    On May 14th 2019. MicrosoFt updated registry keys for above mentioned vulnerabilities

    Up until recently

    Up until recently ( in fact until about a week ago ) the patches from Intel and Microsoft broke overclocking on my RVE10 with 6900K, I could delete the microcode update from the windows system32 directory and get OC back and be unprotected or be protected and bjork overclocking, luckily the latest BIOS update from ASUS fixed that issue and I am now protected and able to overclock but have not been able to do this since the previous update of windows was released ( nearly 7 months ) on that basis I say this.

    I truly believe that there are people on this planet who should voluntarily remove them selves from the gene pool.
