    ASRock Z370/Z390 Taichi (and some others, actively modding!) Firmware with Intel Management Engine Disabled

    @R-T-B , no pressure, just checking if you plan to do the 3.30 version as well? Not that I know if we need the changes: 1.Update vBIOS and GOP 2.Update Intel RAID driver

    ASRock Z370/Z390 Taichi (and some others, actively modding!) Firmware with Intel Management Engine Disabled

    @R-T-B , no worries man, even if you don't manage to reply at all, it's still cool! However I have some more findings to report. So I've tried going from R-T-B's 3.20 to again his 1.80, but it said "Instant Flash - Secure Flash check failed". So I downloaded the official 1.60 and managed to...

    ASRock Z370/Z390 Taichi (and some others, actively modding!) Firmware with Intel Management Engine Disabled

    Yes, I saw some people who have tested that 3.10 (example) and above are decreasing performance and that's why I asked before I took the upgrade, but I had in mind this could happen so I'm fine with it. I tested some more and it looks like the impact differs in different games, which is expected...

    ASRock Z370/Z390 Taichi (and some others, actively modding!) Firmware with Intel Management Engine Disabled

    Nah, all drivers and games are up to date. I've removed KB4100347, but it didn't make any difference so I installed it back.

    ASRock Z370/Z390 Taichi (and some others, actively modding!) Firmware with Intel Management Engine Disabled

    Yep, my setup is very similar to yours. Do you think you can share me your bios settings? I'm not that familiar with what option does what and looks like you know what your doing so may be I can optimize something when compare it to mine. Btw, I spoke too soon. A game I am playing (Furi), I had...

    ASRock Z370/Z390 Taichi (and some others, actively modding!) Firmware with Intel Management Engine Disabled

    Okay, finally found time to do it. I'm on R-T-B's 3.20 now. Everything seems normal and stable. I re-entered my previous bios settings and saved the config to hard drive since it's a new option available in the UEFI. Might test changing previous bios settings to see if I can optimize and get any...

    ASRock Z370/Z390 Taichi (and some others, actively modding!) Firmware with Intel Management Engine Disabled

    any advice on keeping bios settings or is there no easy way? or if it can affect the overclock potential?

    ASRock Z370/Z390 Taichi (and some others, actively modding!) Firmware with Intel Management Engine Disabled

    Ah, no. I was asking about 3.10, because I wasn't sure if I can go from my 1.80 directly to R-T-B's 3.20. And after reading you did it successfully from 3.10, although you downgraded, it just sounded like something that's tested and working :) I wasn't aiming for any specific features of 3.10...

    ASRock Z370/Z390 Taichi (and some others, actively modding!) Firmware with Intel Management Engine Disabled

    @puma99dk| , so you mean to directly use R-T-B's 3.20 bios and don't go to 3.10? Sorry, I didn't get that part, can you please clarify? Do you mean just upse the original Asrock 3.20?

    ASRock Z370/Z390 Taichi (and some others, actively modding!) Firmware with Intel Management Engine Disabled

    @R-T-B , I'm on 1.80 currently with my taichi z370. How do I proceed now? Upgrade to 3.10 using the official bios and then use yours Z37TC320_NOME? Also is there an easy way to save my current bios settings or do I have to remember/write them down and then re-enter them? And lastly, how likely...

    Choices choices (monitor paraphernalia)

    Hi everyone! Although not too active on posting, I'm reading TPU a lot so I'd be more than happy if you share your opinion on my little dilema. So here it is - I'm planning on upgrading my poor Samsung SyncMaster 2253bw to an ultrawide 1440p (3440x1440). My current setup is (may be I should...
