OMGawd, dude, you like gotta have the newest UEFI-thing man, its got like updated CPU code 'n stuff, and does writes OA 3.0 key, and all kinds of updates 'n junk toow.
(Why do I always call you dude, I don't know...)
Mighty fine question, with my usual convoluted answer. Seriously, the descriptions given are poor, such as "update CPU code" or "writes OA 3.0 key", what does that mean? Google our brains out for answers, hopefully.
So updates are always good too, right? Did you notice ASR removed that new INF file installer that did not work for either of us? Only for Windows 8 now.
I agree the "no broke, no fix" philosophy is good, but of course I still have the latest UEFI in my board (11 versions total in nine months, not counting beta's, is that good or bad?)
I can't see anything that I would call essential, or even nice to have, in that list, for the average (not insane) user. No need to fix video card compatibility, right? Your 830 SSD benchmark was great, you use AHCI mode, so no RAID, and the new RAID Option ROM won't do anything for you. Apparently some changes for Windows 8, which might be good if you use Windows 8. The "No K OC" is worthless for your CPU.
Do you have the Fast Boot option in your UEFI now? I have it and I think it is goofy. Can't use Ultra Fast except in Windows 8, and setting to Fast made my POST time double, as in it seemed to POST twice, so I disabled it and it boots faster than ever IMO, seriously.
That "Auto detect PCIe Link Speed" is weird to me, when did we need to set it? That sounds like a fix, but who knows?
BTW, I've always used the Instant Flash option, and it has worked fine for me each time, never a problem. That is in the UEFI, or as a stand alone option that you can start during POST, F11 starts it I think. You just put the new UEFI file (unzipped of course) on a USB flash drive, and put it in USB 2.0 port (since USB 3.0 might not be active during POST.) Any UEFI update will wipe any non-default settings you have done, and saved UEFI profiles are also gone, unless you save them in AXTU, the OC DNA feature, which I think worked for me once or twice. I have about six UEFI versions on a USB flash drive, and Instant Flash lists them all, although people say they cannot flash to earlier versions, which I have not tried.
