The modded BIOS is based on the version 3802 which is the lastest published version for your motherboard.

NOTE the existing Intel ME: 8.0.2.1410 should be upgraded to → 8.1.70.1590 updated in ME Region PRIOR to BIOS flashing

Note the Intel Management Engine version in the photo above!

Further observe the non empty padded files; which implies the NVMe mod should be done using MMTool 4.50.0023.

** Your board should be upgraded to ME 8.1.70.1590 before you update the BIOS. Copy the contents of IntelME.zip to the root of a DOS boot drive, boot from it and run flash.bat
(doing this in advance speeds up the BIOS flashing procedure quite a bit and prevents possible ME version clash issues).


Cheers

As an alternate to the above, the BIOS/UEFI below uses the Small NVMe mod as shown below:

All other EFI/ROM and microcode updates remain the same as above.

I’ll assume you’ve got a proper thermal paste and reseated your CPU and heatsink.

After you’ve reloaded the “Setup Defaults” to your bios; reset your computer, and then enter your preferred custom settings on reboot.
