    Anyone install the A10 BIOS? I'm guessing it has the microcode update for Spectre/Meltdown? I installed it and my system felt sluggish. I had to revert back to A09.

    Good to know that it's possible to play GTA V on a 970 with 3gb, I never tried, thought that it would be too sluggish.

    I dont know if the update has made it out yet but when it does your computer will lag some because it changes the was the intel code works, less efficient, more secure. I dont see myself updating to it myself i dont put anything personal on any windows machine! Ive never trusted windows

    Should I install the latest 1.4.4 bios update? Is it safe to install it? Will it decrease CPU or ssd read/write perfomance?

    For the record I use an Amplifier with a gtx 1080ti and can max games at 50 - 60fps in 4K to an external monitor.
