    This is a BIOS flash, so it will overwrite whatever you currently have. You can still update IME (and any other drivers) manually, the Obsidian tool is just a one-stop shop to simplify things.

    They just sent me a message saying 7700k officially and then unofficially pointed me here.

    For gaming I would tweak your CPU as it is and use the vbios editor which will work on your current vbios. Do you have something in particular that needs more CPU?

    I’ve recently got a 3D scanner and the models I’m doing are starting to bog down my cad programs.

    Then you will need to loose the prema options and flash this if you want to upgrade.

    Is this a stock bios with just the mod to allow the newer cpu’s? What kind of options will i lose from the Prema bios?. I’m kind of on the fence of trying this mod or just buying a new system.

    It will be stock iirc so you will loose all of the prema options. The stock bios still let's you adjust cou voltages, multipliers and memory speed.

    I want replace my 7700K to a 8700K because I think it'll enhance speed in Rpcsx3 and Cemu emulators and to gain more fps(~10) in PC games in general. I think P870DM3 heatsync wouldn't enough to cool a 9900K CPU even at stock speeds without a heavy downclocking and undervoltage.

    Getting a dellid tool for 8700K soon.
