    Trying to learn more about the motherboards firmware and Option Roms. I noticed a modified BIOS updates the firmware of the items listed below on my GA-Z77X-UD4H motherboard but was wondering how to find out what versions my motherboard is using now? I installed Hardware Editor and found the ME Firmware version but couldn't locate any of the others. I was also curious if I flash my motherboard with a modified BIOS, then later flash it with a non-modified BIOS, does that cause the motherboard revert back to the original firmware versions? Thanks.

    Intel UEFI RAID SataDriver
    ME Firmware
    Intel PCI Accelerated SVGA BIOS
    Realtek PCIe GBE Controller
    Marvell 88SE91xx Adapter

    It is possible to update the bios for GA-965P-DS3 rev. 1.3 to support Q9550 processor?

    According to GB, Q9550 seems to be supported by BIOS F13 (step C1) or F14 (step E0).
    BIOS F15c is available in Latest Beta Bios thread.

    Sorry to answer you so late... some answers messy :

    You can't read all µcode/ROM/firmware with a unique tool... under Windows, HWinfo shows you CPU µcode (µCU) and Intel Rapid Storage gives you driver and ROM version (Help/System report)... for other ROM you'll have to extract each one directly from BIOS with special tool (MMtool for our AMI BIOS - X79/Z77/Z87) and read version with an HEX editor (HxD for example).
    These tools allow us to view original BIOS's ROM and include the latest. For more information Fernando did a great job

    Didn't consider it late so no problem. At least now I know what my options are... thanks for the info.

    I've always wondered why people bother with that thing at all, because it's damn useless.

    You may be right, and this is true for many other drivers, firmware etc if you do not have a problem... but you're on TT so we like to tweak

    ME firmware 8.1.40.1416

    (New) Added support for Continuous Aware Mode (CAM) during wireless redirection sessions.
    (New) Updated HDCP for Intel WiDi to version 2.1.
    (New) Decreased the link protection host connection and reconnection timers from 5 to 3 seconds.
    (Fix) Fixed an security vulnerability issue.
