Ok, no problem. Here are my questions though:

1.) For my mainboard (ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3) which ROMs/Firmwares can I update? I want to update what I can?

2.) Regarding my question in the ASUS BIOS with UPDATED OROM thread, do you know why Coderush mentioned to me that Intel ME7 is better for overclocking with Windows 7? What is the latest version of ME 7?

3.) Lastly, how do I determine the version of my Gbe firmware? Is using the Intel Gbe update utility downloadable from Intel enough to update the Gbe firmware?

Can someone please explain to me how to mod an Asrock UEFI bios and update it, or perform the mod so its available, I would really hate to mess up this new board, the only download I can see on their site Is an exe that opens AMI Flash, theres no bios file that I can see, I would like to integrate the newest oprom into the 2.20 bios for the Asrock P67 Extreme 4 Gen 3.

Here are my answers:
  1. The latest Intel RAID ROM is v12.0.0.1783. I am pretty sure, that it will support natively all Intel 6-Series chipset mainboards. If you want TRIM in RAID0 support, you should insert the especially modified version of the latest OROM.
  2. You should not ask me, why Coderush mentioned something. The latest ME firmware and driver versions can be found here.
  3. If you want to know the Gbe details of your system and the ME drivers and firmware versions it is currently using, you may run the MEInfo tool. You can get it from here.
    Unzip the package, run CMD as Administrator, navigate into the folder, which suits the architecture of your OS (32/64bit) and run the EXE file.
By the way: The update of the Intel RAID ROM or EFI "SataDriver" module doesn't touch the ME firmware at all.

Thanks.

1.) What other ROMs/Firmwares can I update aside from ME, RAID OROM, and Gbe firmware for my board?

2.) If my ME is still version 7, is it ok to use the latest version 8 of the driver/software?

3.) Great, I will use MEInfo tool. How do I update the Gbe firmware to the latest and where can I download the latest update file for this?

EDIT: What does it mean when I get an error of "Error 8203: Unexpected result in command response (Get CLS Allowed Feature Info)" when running meinfowin64.exe?

As I already have written, this depends on the specifications of the mainboard. Open any BIOS for your mainboard by using the AMI Aptio MMTool, hit the tab "Extract", then highlight the line CSMCORE, check the "Link Present" within the "For Option ROM Only" area and scroll down the "Link ID" menu. This menu will show all VendorIDs and DeviceIDs of the in use PCI ROM modules.
Then you will know all Option ROM modules of your mainboard, which you can update (if a newer version should be available).
Just to avoid any related request: I will not do this work for you.

The latest ME driver version is 9.0.0.1287 and usable for all systems with a Gbe 1.5M. Yo can find the driverpack v9.0.0.1310 here.
AFAIK this newest Intel ME driver does support all Intel 6-Series chipset mainboards.

AFAIK the Gbe version cannot be updated, because it is determined by chipset.

EDIT:
This is what I get, when I run the MEInfoWin64.exe file in the DOS box after having run the installer of the ME driverpack v9.0.0.1310:

@Fernando,

do you think we can expect the release of a 9.x firmware for P67? We already have the drivers, do they usually go together?

Why do you have doubts about that?

As you can see at my ME Info screenshot attached to my last post, I am running the v9.0.0.1287 ME driver, but the ME device is still using the Firmware v8.1.20.1336.

Oh ok. No worries, I would not ask for any work from you. I just want to know which part of the BIOS can I update.

How about the Intel Update utility that you find here , is this a firmware update utility? Why do I see Gbe firmwares included with ME firmware packs before?

So you don't know about that MEInfo error I was asking about?

You can try to update a lot of different BIOS modules, but I recommend to do that only with the PCI ROM modules, which are all within the CSMCORE file of the AMI UEFI BIOS. Another exception may be the Intel EFI RAID module, which is within the file named "SataDriver".
If you want to update any device firmware, it is better to use the related firmware tool by running its installer than trying to operate manually within the BIOS yourself.
