Be careful! 3101 BIOS update will also update the Intel Management Engine Interface firmware. Your screen will go blank several times during the process. DO NOT power off during that time! Reset your CMOS settings after you have successfully updated the BIOS.

^ This. Never hurts to remind people.

I said in my first post that DDU was used to clean install drivers.
Doesn't help a bit.

I will howerever in the following days detect if it's some application's fault for the conflict (pointing towards AfterBurner?). tongue.gif

I had lots of issues with 2101 in regard to "overclock failed!" message, not being able to past post etc..

I can confirm that so far, 3101 is stable and maintains the previous overclock settings (I re-done all the tests).
Make sure you take screenshots of the previous BIOS version (using F12) since you won't be able to load profiles into 3101.
By screenshot I mean exactly what you see on the screen, not the ENTIRE module or sub-module you're in....so it will take some time to "take a picture" of the whole BIOS.

Indeed, the BIOS update procedure is longer than usual and requires a few automatic reboots.
You need not intervene until you get back to Windows login screen.
I updated the BIOS via BIOS's own EZ Flash2 from USB.

Does anyone know where the latest (BIOS 3101) IME drivers can be downloaded from?

Found these, are these the correct and latest ones?

Thank you WetMacula,

I've been aware of that particular website dedicated to IME drivers but never quite knew what to choose. blushsmiley.gif

I understand that B1 section is for basic drivers while C2 is for the full package, but for the love of Santa Claus, I'm hesitating on what section and more particular, what driver to choose.
What about B2 section, are there any drivers noteworthy of installing there?

I don't know why this website confuses me so much....guiltysmiley.gif

P.S.

In the same note, given the fact that the ASUS website does not post the latest drivers, what is a reliable source for finding the following latest drivers:

Intel Chipset Device Software (INF Update Utility)
Intel Rapid Storage Technology RAID Driver
LAN 2 - Intel Gigabit Ethernet I218-V
LAN 1 - Realtek RTL8168 & RTL8111
Realtek Audio Driver
ASUS Probe II Sense Driver
Asmedia USB3.1
Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver for C220 & C610 Chipset

All these devices show as unidentified in Windows Device Manager if not installed.
(I install them in this particular order but I am ready to stand corrected)

The INTEL website does not help much either, for what drivers they are concerned that is.

Every single time I have to reinstall the operating system (Windows 7 x64 Ultimate for now) I have to spend a good amount of time finding maybe the latest drivers.

Go back a few pages. Microsoft update catalog. It contains up to date WHQL drivers. Of coursevyou can only use IE to download though.

Use this one for the driver under A1: Intel MEI Driver v11.0.11.1193 MEI-Only Installer

Part B1 is the MEI firmware. The latest for our board is Intel ME 9.1 1.5MB Firmware v9.1.37.1002. ASUS flashed this with our latest BIOS so you don't have to.
