    If your bios has same ucode as the VMWARE cpu ucode patcher then you don't the patcher anymore.

    Forgive my laziness / stupidity this morning, but I just wanted to double check with you guys if microcode version 84h is the most updated and proper version I should have listed for my BGA i7 7700HQ? I am running the most recent Dell BIOS update. Am I fully patched for Spectre / Meltdown / HT Bug?

    The most updated one I found was 84 for Kaby Lake H/S/X/G 7th Generation Intel® Core™ Processor Family 906E9 2A Production --- --- 0x84

    Also you can use CPUZ Validator to confirm you are protected! :)

    Since upgrading the microcode does anyone notice a increase in temp on the CPU? Seems to me that my usually programs are running however the CPU seems to run hotter now ..... My fans are running more and check my temps with HWinfo it says the temps are hotter than I remember then being before...

    :confused:

    Check it properly. Not always you can remember correct. Use InSpectre tool [As recommended by Intel to observe your status + able to disable Meltdown and Spectre vulnerability patches].

    I disabled the meltdown and spectre and restarted and still see the same higher temps... so this must not be the problem... I re-enabled and restarted. Same higher temps but true as you say.. maybe I just do not remember correctly... It had been a few months since I paid attention.. Im playing one game that is not too taxing on any computer and the temp seems high... I put it on my laptop cooler now too.. its averaging 60C.. even goes to 78C ... cools down tho quickly. But if I turn on these VERY LOUD fans on max from the Control Center, of course the temp goes to 40C while gaming... but seriously lol who wants to game with Jet Fans running in background lol :eek::p

    Write down a note. Ambient + max temp with fixed clocks in FS and Cinebench. Then you can check it vs. what you get later:)
