Where is the 1902 BIOS for X99 Rampage V Edition 10 motherboard ? Asus lists this motherboard as benefiting a BIOS update for Spectre/Meltdown as of january 2018 : https://www.asus.com/News/V5urzYAT6myCC1o2. Still we're end of April and I can't find that BIOS 1902... What's up with that ?

Just installed it. So far so good. Has allowed me to lower my System agent voltage quite a bit. Seems very stable so far.

@craig which cpu?

System Agent voltage was all the time 0,856V - maybe i test if i can lower it a bit more..

Edit: lowered it to 0,840V seems to be stable!

System agent depends on A: your CPU and B: what speed you are running your Ram at. I have a 6900k and 3200CL14 ram. Before it needed 1.2 volts using bios 1004, with the 1902 bios it only needs 1.0 to be stable. Big difference for me.

I'am little surprised:

with the Bios 1902 its the first time that i can set VCCIO on 0.95v for Broadwell-E and it (looks - still testing) stable.
With Bios 1802 i have to use 1,05v minimum to run stable.

System Agent voltage 0,856V lower it to 0,840V stable too...

For me the 1902 seems to be a very good bios version which need less power..

Using 6950x with Adaptive Mode @4Ghz with 1,147V (load) & 0,707v (idle).

Edit:
testing now: @4Ghz with 1,139 (load) & 0,698v (idle) - using AVX2 stable voltages (1,05v @3,7ghz)

Previous BIOS 180x introduced a lot of stability issues (BSOD every now and then). So far so good with 1902B : not a single BSOD... And the Spectre fix, good stuff !

Has anyone noticed microfreezes and slowdowns while watching Netflix after the new 1902 beta bios?

I also updated my ASRock X99 Taichi motherboard to the newest bios with Spectre/Meltdown fixes, and doing the exact same thing.

reverting back to old bios on the ASRock fixes it. I havent rolled back the Bios on the Extreme 5 E10 yet.

Is this just something we are going to have to live with? The "Crippling" of the CPU's performance ive been reading about with the Spectre / Meltdown fixes?

Thanks for your help!

This should be an Nvidia Driver Problem!

Use 397.55: Hotfix (Netflix playback may occasionally stutter)
