    I'm building my friend a Win10 setup based on an old P67 Extreme4/G640 I had lying around. I'm glad I saw this post before I flashed it to 3.10. The most recent BIOS I could find that didn't support Ivy Bridge was 2.10B. I flashed it already. This would be the correct firmware for me to use, correct?Is there anything more recent? I imagine I'll eventually put a newer CPU in like an Ivy Bridge, but for now I should stick with 2.10B?Anyone know where to find 2.10E? I just noticed my board is B3, so it's fine as far as the SATA problem goes.

    3.1 bios which contains intel management engive v8.xxxx (unsupported by B2 revision) should wok fine with B3 board

    But I thought the whole point of this thread was to warn people not to use 3.10 with Sandy Bridge based cpus? Or am I OK because I have a B3 revision P67 Extreme4?

    You have chance to check it by your own :) Intel ME causes all the problems , because 3.1 contains 8xx ME vesion that is uncompatible with b2.I think it will work well with b3 and sandy bridge, but really, there is no reason to update bios, though 3.1 interface looks and works better it wont change anything for you.

    Wouldn't the Intel ME run better with Win10? I've read problems like the 100% usage bug that 3.10 possibly resolves.In any event, I'll probably upgrade the board to a better Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge at some point down the line. (used ones are dropping in price quickly) If it won't hurt I might as well just flash to 3.10 and above.

    The 100% usage bugs occurs in my ASRock P67 Pro3 motherboard with 2500k and that is the reason why i want to perform bios update to 3.10 that solves this problem. I really hope that i will not brick my motherboard.

    Just check the revision of the MB using CPU-z. If you have B3 revision -go ahead and and update bios. But do not try this id you have B2 revision board.

    Hey,

    I have been reading this thread for a while and decided to register and tell my experience with updating the bios for my motherboard, in case it can be helpful for other people.

    I have the asrock P67 extreme4 revision B3, and I was using the 1.7 bios ever since I built my PC 5 years ago. I recently replaced my old GPU with a new 980 ti and ever since I did that, my PC started acting up. After ruling out everything else, I arrived to the conclusion that my bios needed to be updated, so I updated it to the 3.10 version from WINDOWS, despite what people say about it being dangerous.

    Everything went perfectly fine, 0 issues encountered and right now the system seems to be more stable than ever before. Also my CPU temperatures have gone down about 10-15 degrees (something in my old bios version was messing it up).

    I have an i7 2600k by the way, so Sandy bridge. I AM using a SANDRYBRIDGE with the 3.10 version without problems.

    Just make sure to clear the CMOS or restore all the CMOS to default via the BIOS before you update, and obviously if you're going to use windows, close all programs and disable your antivirus, and make sure you won't have a power outage and you'll be perfectly fine as long as your board is the B3 revision (don't update your BIOS if your revision is B2).

    Good luck.
