    Hi, I just found my own ME Update tool in the ASUS Bios List, and not in the Chipset List as expected.
    For you it's probably also there...

    Very bad that ASUS are still offering BIOS updates for download which include the early January microcode release which is known to cause problems. These should have been removed as recommended by Intel.

    In good news, Microsoft are releasing the fixed production microcode updates through Windows Update. Currently only for Windows 10 and Skylake, other CPUs (but not other O/S) will be added.

    Later intel said the initial released microcode (version C2) for SKYLAKE H/S U/Y etc didn't had any problem and was ok to use, so bios updated for these skylakes C2*** are ok.
    But you a right for any other CPU than the skylake C2*** models, for all the others the initial released MC needs to be fixed/upgraded.

    https://newsroom.intel.com/wp-conten...e-guidance.pdf
    "Lines with “***” were previously recommended to discontinue use. Subsequent testing by Intel has determined that these were unaffected by the stability issues and have been re-released without modification."

    I'm using bios 3703 in M8H with 6600k without stability issues, this bios has microcode version C2 for skylake.
    Intel says this MC version C2 is ok/stable for your skylake H (i7 6700k, i5 6600k, etc.).

    There are 2 ways to have this C2 microcode for skylake and be protect against spectre.
    You can do the bios update 3703 _or_ you can do windows 10 manual catalog update (link posted above by it troll), you don't need both, only need one of them. There is no problem if you do both, but it's not needed because both update the microcode to the same C2 version.

    With the windows manual catalog update, windows will upload the microcode to the CPU every time windows boots, so you only have the new microcode when running your windows 10.
    With the Bios update, the bios updates the CPU microcode before any OS or software runs.
