Asus Z68 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 102

post #1011 of 1418
Is there a newer guide here on how to update ME8? The link in the first post is outdated and has a note that its for ME7 firmware update. I found a newer ME8 v8.1.0.1248.bin and the latest ME driver at intel.com are the same version string. Thanks.

If you download the full package from here first you get all the ME8 tools.

http://faenl.msi.com/index.php?dir=Mainboard/Z77%20MPower(7751)/Driver/1.5m/

Then just replace the BIN file with the one you have. The method is still exactly the same (I just do it from Windows prompt).

FWUpdLcl64.exe -F [file]

Obviously take a backup first (-SAVE) and you can confirm the version with -FWVER [file] switch.

To make sure it's all good you can then run this afterwards (after the reboot): MEInfoWin64.exe.

Thank you very much for your thorough explanations. I will update once I got home. Thanks again.

Did you update your ROM version to 11.5.x.x.x and using the latest iRST 11.5.x.x driver? Is TRIM on RAID 0 working now on Z68 chipset?

Thanks for the instructions. Anyway, is that ME firmware version the latest already?

I've got the latest ROM and driver and nope, I don't see TRIM on Z68.

It's 'official' from the point of view that at least 1 Asus board has it (Z77 sabertooth). It's working fine for my Z68 and another user on his P67.
