    It's the BIOS (ucode) updates that are the real kicker in performance.

    Glad you got it done. I should have mentioned yesterday making certain the thumb drive was formatted correctly, sorry about that. Perhaps you can try running the Update tool Asus has in the same place at their site to see if that works to update the ME. If not then you are where I'm at. But if it works try also the Intel testing tool spoken of in this thread to see if your system is now not vulnerable. Mine still is.
    Wordsworth,

    Did you update the Intel Management Engine interface to 11.7.0.140? How did you do it? I found the download but cannot work out or find info on what to run. The confusion being the timestamp on the ASUS Setup.exe. Plus inside each of these folders is also another ASUSsetup.exe, all with 2015 timestamps. What file from which folder do we run? Does this just install over the top of the existing Intel Management Interface? Once I do this successfully I’ll try the MEupdate tool from the ASUS site. I am wary of clicking the wrong thing and hosing things up. I wish ASUS would provide clear instructions on what to do.

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    I'm seeing alot of talk about the Intel ME bug which is different then the meltdown and spectre issues. I went and found the official Intel page on it that appears to have all the information anyone could need.

    Intel® Management Engine Critical Firmware Update (Intel-SA-00086)

    You might want to just wait until they have a new BIOS for these two new problems(The ME problem is already old news, sorry)for your 270 board, with a 2018 date.

    Unless....
    You enjoy going through your BIOS and setting everything up the way you want it again & again & again.
    Thanks Cliff...I will wait.

    Hi,
    @scottyboy

    The confusion being the timestamp on the ASUS Setup.exe. Plus inside each of these folders is also another ASUSsetup.exe, all with 2015 timestamps. What file from which folder do we run? Does this just install over the top of the existing Intel Management Interface? Once I do this successfully I’ll try the MEupdate tool from the ASUS site. I am wary of clicking the wrong thing and hosing things up. I wish ASUS would provide clear instructions on what to do.
    Run the .exe that's visible in your screenshot. The timestamp of that one isn't relevant.

    Thank you so much. That worked perfectly.

    Hi Wordsworth,

    i ran that MEupdatetool after and it seemed to do its thing and then restart pc to complete. Everything came up fine in the aftermath.

    A small suggestion.

    Don't get in a hurry to update your bios. I'm trying not to do anything that might screw up the fix for this problem.
    I personally will wait for more information on how to solve this problem.
    As hard as the companies are working on this problem it shouldn't be long.

    I did just took a look (curious) at the bios updates for my Asus X99 Deluxe II and I still have the most resent that I installed just before installing Windows 10.

    Glad you seem to have everything going now. I just got in and am going chill and relax this evening then do what you've done tomorrow.

    Edit: Well, I had a longer post but this software (the forum) is screwing up so I'll just say I got it done tonight. Sigh.

    Good to hear. It’s been a headache for sure. More BIOS updates and cumulative updates to come i am sure as the saga unfolds
