    Asus getting sloppy on the ME firmware version(still using the same ME from the last UEFI update) according to the latest version of ME analyzer:
    Attachment 218054
    If there is no compelling reason, I'd rather they not update the me firmware, why should they?

    Rolling back the ME firmware is not something that can be easily done.

    Security is reason enough for me.

    You don't know that there was any security vulnerabilities addressed in the newer releases. You would have heard if there was anything major, and if there were, Asus would have updated the firmware.

    Doesn't the Asus download page specifically say updated CPU microcode under the 1801 BIOS notes?

    What microcode revision does Aida64 show for your motherboard?

    In AIDA it's a pain in the butt to find, but CPU-Z validation says: Rev. 0xA2

    Different numbers, different dates. Why not?

    0xA2 is the updated microcode with the 1801 BIOS. @Kol12 the microcode(0x96) will remain the same for your 8700K.
