0xEA Intel Micro Code for z390 Aorus Master. This is F11o modded version (also latest drivers inside). Should be installed using efiflash: efiflash.exe "name of file" /X
Tested and working! Thnx to @KedarWolf!
Thanks! I'll add a link to this in Quick Reference spoiler in Post 1. Should this be installed on top of F11n Official?

Update: Reference added.

You stated that with AppleVTD enabled, WiFi and Ethernet do not work with G.Skill Ripjaws 4x32GB memory. If you go to System Information --> Memory, you'll see the part number. Can you please post that?
F4-3200C16-32GVK

Although the product I ordered shows F4-3200C16Q-128GVK on the product page.

Doesn't matter. Can be installed over all BIOS. Just "restore defaults" and settings rebuild.

There was no D when I did the check, though the set has a different part number with a Q.

Also, you updated with my entry but you listed it as a 16GB module. These are 32GB modules.

@StefanAM,
My experience with F11o and F11n was not good as it appeared to break some thunderbolt/USB-c functionality. I believe there are similar problems with the latest versions of the Designare BIOS. Since it is based on the F11o version, does this patched version only update the intel microcode? Or does it fix the problems introduced in the last two beta versions?

Part number F4-3200C16Q-32GVK is 8GB:

Not to throw a monkey wrench into the RAM issue, but I came across this unpleasantness last night: It's a LinusTechTips video about single/dual rank chips being swapped around by manufacturers to meet demand.
I don't know how much of a concern it is, but I thought I should at least post a couple links:



If one were building a new machine, is there any reason to not use 2x32GB RAM?
