- Intel ME Consumer Firmware :
i found all firmware after 220.127.116.116.bin include 18.104.22.1686.bin have a same size. as i get it there no codes changes, only some correction of 22.214.171.1246.bin... in my system all of them works same cool i mean all of all from first day 25/11/2022. only bios versions 0904-1303 don't works with my memory... afaik firmware update it's only for make more simple way to communicate system with chipset + security. so i guess this can not be worse than older version, as bios can, because bios very complicated thing, what have to works good with many variable hardware. but chipset itself works directly with motherboard components that's standard certain things. so we can just update firmware without thinking it's can be worse than before. that we can not do with bios so far. i have situation that have to be very sensitive with any wrong settings, bios and firmware codes it's too high speed kits. actually i don't know other system that can take two kits 6400 memory at native xmp timings+voltages... but all firmware with 0703 and 0816 bios worked perfect. probably firmware can be clue to nvme which works out of cpu, and other pcie slots hardware. but i don't think this part of code changing, because this part, i think, write very carefully first days for works forever. because if not it can create much more trouble with hardware than bios can. from lost date to physical lost 3rd party components. but inside mobo where guys can test all mobo parts in supported chipsets, it can be write again and again:) but i join to the question, and would be cool to know how many stupid things i wrote above, because all of this my speculation:)
hi guys, would you kind to explain, why bios settings so unpredictable? now i don't sure any more, what the bios good what another not so good. or all of them same good... really. i know some time if memtest gives some errors, you just reload memory in auto, restart and then set xmp... but now.... after i back again from 1501 to 0816 i stop to get trouble only after couple of changing to auto and back ti xmp... this confusing very well:) i just try to understand what's going on. is the xmp can set different settings? today, when i play with settings i had same errors in same part of test, had different errors in different parts, and i even had stable xmp2 in new bios after set 1.385 mc voltage, same that 0816 does, btw 1501 instead of this value sets 1.32 and after i saw that, i set 1.385. bios add itself 0.00250 increment so in the line was 1.38750, however voltage mc show 1.385... and test goes o.k. i stop it on 70% never test to the end:) and after that i think to my self, well probably that was voltage problem, and i bac to xmp1, and then whatever i do, i couldn't have stable test on xmp1 or xmp2... this is so strange for me, i understand it as i ignorance and so i can not get it, but probably you guys can... so now i back to 0816, and for this bios start again, i had to change settings back and force many time... please... i just need do know even exist algorithm where same settings will have predictable/same behavior? because with that situation, i feel my self in some twilight zone, you know... i don't sure, but even no xmp mode are different both set 3600 first time, and 0816 set 4800 after restart, with mc 1.24v and 1501 same 3600 first time, but after restart 4200 1.1v i will not go back to 1501 but with next one i probably have to be more persistent:) if somebody know any algorithm for be sure the settings set the same settings... is it even possible?
