My system is a Broadwell-E i7-6850K with an ASRock X99 WS motherboard. In looking at the board's page, it looks like ASRock released a BIOS update mid-April with the following release notes:
Code: Select all
[Firmware Bug]: TSC_DEADLINE disabled due to Errata; please update microcode to version: 0xb000020 (or later)
Would you recommend flashing my BIOS to this newer version, or just stick with what I have for now? I know BIOS updating is always risky business but I don't want my system to have issues due to incompatibilities.Update Haswell-E CPU Microcode to revision 3C and Broadwell-E CPU Microcode to revision 0B00002A.
