Rampage V Extreme (non Edition 10) Meltdown/Spectre Bios update

Randolf
Level 7
As per the title, I see from here https://www.asus.com/News/V5urzYAT6myCC1o2 Asus has provided only X99 bios (microcode) updates for the Strix and the Extreme V Edition 10. I do not fancy rebuilding my entire system around an Edition 10 purely to somewhat mitigate Meltdown/Spectre as my X99 system has been running happily overclocked and stable for years.

Can I use the Edition 10 bios on my 1st gen Rampage V Extreme mobo? I am completely out of the loop on systems/motherboards these days, and only look into hardware when I do a new build.

Thanks.

Ya know,
I have the same board. Original Rampage V Extreme.
Also runs great .

So, I think I would like to ask this question also.

"We recommend customers update their systems by downloading and applying the latest BIOS, as soon as the relevant revision becomes available."
I have the R5E10 - bios 1901 is not yet available on the support site I link to.

Ye your not one a ASUS Rampage V Extreme x99 Motherboard I am hoping Asus add support to the New Microcode Bios Update Soon.

I am really worried they will just ignore their older X99 boards completely.
