MMTool v3.26 is known to be buggy. Instead you should use MMTool v3.22 BKMOD.

Many thanks Sonix and shroeder, I will give this a whirl next week, once I get my radiator installed on the "91 VW Jetta (425,000kms).

As always, one should never be overheated around cars or computers.

Old and ancient technology still has it's uses!

Cheers

Hi.

I need help to understand how to update microcode (or to check CPU models supported) for Toshiba L15W laptop.
I have troubles replacing Intel N2840 to N2920 BayTrail SoC in this laptop.

Unfortunately, I don't know firmware vendor, so I attached my firmware. I have already tried MMTool v.5 and Insyde H2O utility with no result.

There is a change log for microcode update?

Locked Intel Skylake CPUs Can Be Unlocked With BCLK Mod

It looks like modified CPU microcode. Any idea how can do that?

I have never flashed bios with 1B microcode, always 19 or older, but HWinfo shows 1B. Asus maximus v gene & 3570k.
A tool like HWinfo can only show, what it is coded to look for, no matter if it is correct.
Example: The Device Manager shows the driver date of all on-board Controllers, but it doesn't even check the driver itself. It just reads the associated .INF (=text) file. So if you change the driver date entry by editing the INF file yourself, the Device Manage will show that date and not the correct driver date, which only can be verified by right clicking onto the driver itself (= .SYS file) and choosing "Properties" > "Details".


There has a mcupdate_GenuineIntel.dll inside the system itself, which contains the latest microcode. So I think windows uses its own microcode after boot. I've moded my bios file with 07microcode, but aida64 shows I'm using the latest 1E. After simply searching and deleting 2 mcupdate_GenuineIntel.dll files, aida64 shows the correct 07 microcode.
I have a problem modding my biostar hifi b85z bios, downgrading the microcode just to lock turbo boost of all 4 cores in E3v3 1231 to 3.8GHz, but it's not that simple. 4cores can only performing 3.6GHz at the same time. So anyone knows about this? How to modify "Max Turbo Boost Multipliers"?

Wow! I'm not lonely in my problem! Now I'm searching for how to modify my motherboards BIOS to unlock. First I tried to compare two BIOSes with and without modification. Found that there are some new blocks in modified BIOS. Today I discovered this forum and UBU. Trying to understand what to do with that all. Still researching. If you find some information about how it works I'll be appreciate to you. I had ASUS Z170-P motherboard and Pentium G4400.

@Yazon2006 So get the latest BIOS from ASUS website, flash the latest ME Firmware from Plutomaniac using FWUpdLcl, then dump the bios using' FPT.EXE -d BIOS.BIN', use UEFITool to extract ME Firmware, copy the Integrated Clock Controller values from the ASUS unlocked ME Firmware to your ME FIrmware using FITC, then flash the modded ME Firmware using 'fpt.exe -f NAMEOFMEFILE.BIN -ME' After that it should work.

@ Everyone else Yazon2006 will confirm if the theory will work or not. This theory so far has been untested.

What happens if I remove the codes of processors that are not needed for my CPU?

There must be something wrong with my system because in the BIOS it states I have microcode 19 but HWiNFO64 is reporting 1B and AIDA64 is reporting 1Bh.
Usually modern OS have a microcode update mechanism included. Linux has this and Windows also. So if you use an actual OS the latest microcodes are included and applied automatically.
Someone told me for Haswell-E (5960X) the latest microcode in included in a Windows update but I don't think this is true.
Can some explain it to me?

Edit: I use Windows 10.

Windows will never keep up with the microcode releases, you are lucky if you will see one or two updates during an OS lifetime. If you have Win10 fully updated, please upload "mcupdate_AuthenticAMD.dll" and "mcupdate_GenuineIntel.dll" from Windows\System32.

@SoniX

Hi all, first let me say thanks for the tools and the info. It's been very educational to read all of these posts. Quick question. How do I know what bugs are patch in a specific microcode update? I'm familiar with the spec update pdfs from Intel that detail the bugs but how do I know which are fixed in a particular microcode? I thought about looking at the release date of the microcode update and the dates the errata were added to the spec update pdfs but idk if that's a safe assumption. Can you offer any guidance?

@SpookiDooki:
Welcome at Win-RAID Forum!
Since I am not an expert regarding the CPU Microcode, I hope, that you will get an answer from someone, who knows more about this topic.

I just noticed that there is another thread where this should have been posted instead. I apologize in advance. I can't seem to find the options to delete/move the post. Soo sorry.
No problem, I have moved your post into the correct thread.
