    Intel Management Engine 8 and 3rd Generation Processors

    moglee

      Hi

       

      I have been following the guide here: Desktop Boards — Updating the BIOS to support 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors to update my board (DH67BL) to the latest BIOS so that I can upgrade my processor to an i7 3770.

       

      I upgraded to the BIOS to the Transition BIOS and then to the Ready BIOS.

       

      However, my Intel Management Engine is stuck at Version 7.1. As per the flowchart, I will have to use the recovery update method, however, the Interactive Wizard doesn't even ask for the version of IME.

       

      This machine is for personal use (mostly playing video games). I wanted to know, do I need to do a Recovery Update of my BIOS or is it OK to leave IME at v7.1

      Thanks
