    Default BIOS F22j - anyone experiencing negative outcomes regarding performance/other?

    I updated to the F22h which was supposedly the fix for the spectre/meltdown microcode thing.
    But after upgrading to Win 10 1803, I see that I am now vulnerable once again to Spectre (CVE-2017-5715) Vulnerable

    I'm guessing F22j has new stuff for fixing this?
    Appreciate any guidance or feedback as I don't want to update for updating's sake when my PC has been problem free for many months.
    Microsoft should release a patch for this, like they did in Win 10 1709 so maybe waiting is best?
    Thanks

    Thanks Stasio.

    Can I assume that the F22j version is a solid BIOS and I should have no isssues with my existing settings (small OC to 4.5ghz on my i76700K) that is 200% rock solid?
    Is this new KB out yet, or is this something Microsoft will push for Win 10 1803 in the near future?

    Also, how severe is this vulnerability? I read that one of these issues would only be an issue if a hacker had physical access to the PC but can't recall which one.
    No one but me touches my PC, so if it's not a massive concern then I may be tempted to leave the BIOS and wait for the Windows patch.

    Appreciate your feedback.

    Hello Stasio


    I appreciate your reply regarding the new BIOS to protect from Spectre.
    Are you currently using this latest BIOS on your Gigabyte board, and can you attest to it's stability?


    I have unfortunately read some pretty negative reviews of this BIOS version, causing serious system instability, in some cases the PC won't post.
    Of course human error is a factor in some of these, but with the Gigabyte BIOS flashing process being so incredibly easy, only an idiot could screw it up.


    I haven't had a great experience with Gigabyte BIOS, and have had to go through the laborious process of downgrading after trying out the F21 versions that essentially made even modest OC impossible. I think I'm back on F6 or F8d (can't recall which one was considered the best performer)


    I'm hesitant. Yes, Spectre is a threat, but a dead or poorly performing PC is worse as this PC is only used for gaming.
    And Microsoft promises an updated patch for Win 10 1803.


    With the Microsoft patch, a hacker would need physical access to my PC I understand?


    Appreciate your feedback.

    EDIT:

    Unless you simply haven't updated your PC stats, looks like you don't follow your own advice regarding BIOS versions.
    I can only guess that it's because the new versions negatively impact performance, and/or you don't see the issue as severe enough.

    Hi !

    Does it exist any repositories where older build's of utilities can be downloaded?

    Thinking of Easytune from 2013...

    Thanks in advance

    Exclamation Re: Welcome to GIGABYTE Technical Support!

    I'm running a Gigabyte GA-Z170n Gaming 5 rev 1.1 and an Intel 6700k on Windows 10. I updated from an old F5 BIOS to the latest F23f with no errors and now my PC won't boot. It won't boot into Windows. I can't boot from a USB device or even the DVD drive. It just keeps boot looping and then shutting down, starts back up and repeats. I can get into the BIOS fine but can't boot anything. I tried to reflash the F5 BIOS but as you know it blocks you from reverting back.

    Is there anything I can do or will I have to RMA it? I can't even boot into FreeDOS to bypass the flash restrictions that are in place. Very frustrating experience considering something similar happened when I tried updating from F5 to F20 a few years back and it wiped out my RAID array. At least then I was able to boot into FreeDOS and force flash the F5 and recover everything. I've been a life long supporter but the whole experience with seemingly unstable BIOS with many unintended side effects has left me disappointing.

    I appreciate any help.

    Hello Can anyone tell me if my Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 (rev 1) is compatable with EVGA Geforce GT 710 GPU? Powered up, gpu card fan spins but monitor says "no signal". I even tried hdmi cable to tv, still nothing. GPU was bought new

    Update. I purchased new a MSI ARMOR RADEON
    RX570. 8GB GDDR5. PCIE-16 GPU. I get SAME result. I was told elsewhere the bios has to be updated to use such advanced gpu after lesser cpu is installed. I have INTEL i7-970 w/12 meg cache 3.2 ghz and was told bios has to be updated to use THAT cpu. I did see that cpu is comparable with F15 or something like that. I have no way of knowing currently what version it has NOW without lesser video card. This is a new build, and boy last one I built over 10 years ago was not as difficult to get er running.
