    Inside of the ME firmware 8.1.40.1416 is the meinfo64 tool which will give you the version numbers of your current firmware and driver versions. Like this.

    You'll need to just update your drivers. Link MEI Driver v9.5.13.1706

    Mine are outdated, because of testing various BIOS'.

    Thanks again MacG32.

    As you can see there are two differences in MEInfo tool output:
    FW Version from 8.1.0.1248 > 8.1.40.1416
    Independent Firmware Recovery from Disabled > Enabled

    Don't know what Independent Firmware Recovery is.

    Actually I am very leery of updating my MEI driver to 9.5.13.1706, as I don't know if it will work like the old one 8.1.0.1263. I thought this driver was chipset specific and my z77x-ud5h rev 1.1 chipset may be different from yours. After all, it does hardware monitoring such as system and CPU temperature. I may be wrong (I need advise here please) but I think that there are different MEI drivers for different manufacturers and different motherboards. Gigabyte only lists MEI (Intel Management Engine Interface) version 8.1.0.1263 for the z77x-ud5h rev 1.1 motherboard.

    You can see that the newest version is compatible with your chipset. Station-Drivers - Intel Chipset (top box)

    stasio has Intel® Management Engine Interface(MEI) Driver 9.5.13.1706 WHQL listed here and is the official version, which was linked previously.

    That statement is partially true. An older Intel DG43NB board released in 2008 that I have, (LGA775 socket) includes an MEI v. 5.xxx firmware that can only be used with a corresponding MEI driver v. 5.2.0.1002.
    But: there's no difference between manufacturer A vs. manufacturer B, [assuming the 2 boards are using the same Intel chipset], as far as what MEI firmware and device driver are appropriate for that specific chipset board.
    Different chipsets DO require different MEI firmware specifications. An MEI firmware from a Z87 chipset board would be incorrect if attempted to be put on a Z77 board, for example.
