    It looks like a possible BIOS update in the near future:
    (since ya'll Maximus XI owners just got one, check to see if you already have been updated)

    ME firmware has nothing to do with any OS.
    It is so sys admins can communicate with another PC through the BIOS even when that PC is turned off, remotely.
    ME is an independent subsystem on the CPU's PCB.

    So you should updater it, yes.

    Oh yeah also an updated ME firmware is what protects you against Intel SA00086

    Would the firmware posted on rog for z390 also work for a gigabyte board with 9900k?

    Just a guess, it should work, as it updates the firmware on the chipset, not the BIOS chip(CMOS).
    You need to just make sure Z390 gets the version 12 and Z370 gets version 11 CSME
    It has nothing to do with which CPU your are using, just the chipset.

    If you haven't tried don't do it.
    The Intel ME firmware consists of 2 parts, one CODE (global) and the other DATA (manufacturer specific). The Intel tool used to flash the Intel ME firmware (FWUpdLcl64.exe) only flashes the CODE part, the DATA portion is not affected and remains as ASUS has configured on the latest flashed BIOS.
    What is Intel(R) Management Engine?

    information   Information

    The Intel® Management Engine is an embedded microcontroller (integrated on some Intel chipsets) running a lightweight microkernel operating system that provides a variety of features and services for Intel® processor–based computer systems.

    What kind of features does Intel® Management Engine have?

    Features include (but are not limited to):

    Low-power, out-of-band (OOB) management services
    Capability Licensing Service (CLS)
    Anti-Theft Protection
    Protected Audio Video Path (PAVP)

    At system initialization, the Intel® Management Engine loads its code from system flash memory. This allows the Intel® Management Engine to be up before the main operating system is started. For run-time data storage, the Intel® Management Engine has access to a protected area of system memory (in addition to a small amount of on-chip cache memory for faster and more efficient processing).

    A fundamental feature of the Intel® Management Engine is that its power states are independent of the host OS power states. This feature allows it to be up when the microprocessor and many other components of the system are in deeper sleep states. As a result, the Intel® Management Engine can be a fully functioning component as soon as power is applied to the system. This capability allows it to respond to OOB commands from the IT management console without having to wake up the rest of the system. Therefore, power consumption is reduced significantly.
