I wonder how long it took you to finally let go of your last system. While you are the lucky one who didn't had problem with AISuite 188.8.131.52, my system was crashing left and right with that version. Not just me though, check ROG forum and there are lots of other users who had problem with the 184.108.40.206.
Love new stuff, I upgrade my system 2-3 years, most recently Rampage Extreme (qx9770) to Z87, to x99 & Mini-ITX Z170. I upgrade graphics cards when a new directx platform arrives because I typically have 2-3 card builds and don't suffer performance issues. I don't upgrade software unless it does something to fix a problem or delivers a new feature. I certainly don't install updates that remove functionality or provides capabilities that don't work, and this is what the Z170 Sabertooth's version does to the x99. Name one documented feature or fix that this new AISuite3 delivers and I'll be more interested. I can name a feature lost... USB Charger +.
AISuite3 involves sensors, fan control, and electrical adjustments. It's not a simple product, so I am not surprised if people find themselves needing to format their drive and start over. I bet the majority of problems come from enthusiasts running too many apps that can conflict, and in this case I blame the system builder not the manufacturer. I get that it's possible people who are experiencing issues may find solace with the update, but they are specific cases, and undocumented in general because you can't account for their system stability or software deployment state.
I do like the Tuf CPU-Z!
