He's probably talking about this thread on TweakTown: https://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyt...beta-bios.html

Anywhere I could find changelog for F11 bios?
Currently I am on f11a, with "finalized" mem and cpu clocks. Dont want to blindly update.

Disabling Thermal Velocity Boost voltage optimizations will raise the idle voltage considerably by allowing AC Loadline to boost the VID as high as the impedance allows, or up to 1.520v, whatever comes first (before vdroop, calm down ladies). The load voltage will also be higher, unless the impedance will put you at 1.520v (before vdroop), and it would also be at 1.520v if TvB voltage optimizations were enabled anyway (in which case the load voltage wouldn't change). If you disable TvB voltage optimizations, be prepared to adjust your AC Loadlines or DVID offsets for the VID increase that will result in VR VOUT increase.

Testing CPU stability is as bad as testing overclocked RAM. You never know if you're stable or 'partially stable' until a north wind blows your way. I "seem" to be maybe 5mv more stable than before, but I won't know for a few days of testing.

I think this BIOS is required for 9900KS support, unless F10a / b will have microcode for it.

I looked at a new MSI BIOS and they are also shipping the old microcode, so I assume the older microcodes support the KS, though that doesn't guarantee that the older BIOSes will be able to properly detect the CPU or have the necessary strings to display product specific info.

Either your memory will gain a ton of speed or you can kiss your bandwidth goodbye

Do you enjoy having 9998 tREFI, or 65534 ? D:

I'm guessing the "KS" microcode is the same as 906EC (AE?)? I thought new steppings got new microcodes. Or where is KS? 906ED I'm guessing is the KF chip.
