Also, should I upgrade the IME firmware?

This guy has done all the work for you incase you don't want to mod it yourself.

I believe though I'm not 100% sure this gives you TRIM in RAID0; but you can remain with 11.2 RST which give the best performance. That said, I'm personally running the 11.6.2.1002.

Regarding the ME firmware, I say yes .. why not. I like many others have and it hasn't caused an issue (but obviously nobody can guarantee anything for you). You can take it a step further and update the Gbe version from 1.3 to 1.5 also using FTK.

You guys need some crazxy voltages to get stable... damn.

I am running 4.4ghz @ 1.168v with over 13 hrs prime stable - that is quite a discrepancy eh?

Thanks!

Yep, I've seen that and already flashed it. No problems whatsoever, benchmark results strong as ever on RST 11.6.

I also flashed the ME, didn't check the whole vPro thing, but no problems so far with everything else.

As for the GbE, it seems I already have 0.15 from flashing the modded 1708.

Cheers.

I wouldn't say that, I think my voltage is about yours for 4.4 clock. Once you go for 4.5 and higher clock voltages seem to increase largely. smile.gif
Are you using the latest BIOS release? I've been so lazy, still at 1406 running 4.5 @ 1.2v Apparently the latest release you can clock higher with less volts.

Is this not a newer version of the Intel Management Engine Driver/Firmware than the one listed in the first post for the Maximus Formula? I can only seem to find the "driver" on the Intel site and not the firmware..would rather get it straight from the source than "station-drivers.com"

There also seems to be a newer version of the Asus AI Suite II on the official site: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/Maximus_V_Formula/#download

(And can someone tell me exactly what this driver does?)

8.1.2.1318 vs 8.1.10.1300

Hope that helps. I'm still in the process of updating some of the board's AI Suite. Not a big fan of it so I honestly don't care TBH. IME helps with a wide range of things but most importantly stability fixes.

that just seems like a typo to me, unless someone can show me where the 8.1.10.1300 driver is on the official intel website, it looks like he just put a 0 there accidentally

Alright, I believe you, but where is the file on the Intel website? I just can't seem to find it, their search system isn't very intuitive/helpful.

Edit: Ugh, I just unpacked the file from station-drivers, there's not even a main installer I can find, and in every sub-folder they've included a stupid shortcut to their website. This is why I would prefer a download from Intel so I don't have all this garbage. Anyone, please?
