The update to avoid is the ME firmware. Drivers are fine.

Micro$h4f doesn’t push out device firmware updates. Only for own trash. And why let the Redmond morons update your pc at all? It’s your computer not theirs. Close the door and do it yourself.
Is there any tutorial for using Kapton tape on CPU pins? I don’t want to botch my brand new CPU..
You don't need a tutorial as much as simply making sure you place it on the right pins. This can be a bit of a pain, requires steady hands and some good eye sight. I cut the kapton tape pieces using small sewing scissors and then used a magnifying headset similar to this
It's not hard work but does require a bit of patience.
You tape over the contact points of the CPU rather than the pins of the socket I'm assuming, that would be easier. When Huniken was talking about taping CPU pins that sounds more difficult - I'm thinking he might be considering placing tape over the pins in the socket, I'm assuming that's wrong.
Cpu works fine in the socket without the pins covered but still cover them just in case, you don't want a burnt socket.
I used parcel tape, cut a small section of it and placed it on both pins. Then put the cpu into the socket. Be warned though the tape can move overtime due to heat from the cpu.
The LAST thing you want to do is accidently cover a live vss pin with the adhesive on the bottom of the tape. That is deadly for the cpu. It's what lead to my cpu blue screening on full load. Ive heard it can lead to permanent damage but I don't believe that.
I think Kapton tape will be fine, still I'll make sure it sticks in the correct way.
I think I will buy that, could use it for many things!
Whoops, I meant the CPU pads themselves, please don't mess with those very delicate pins lol. I bent one once and it was a PITA to bend back. Luckily it was an old LGA1156 motherboard.
