    Here is the zip file with Ryzen uCodes, I didn't try it so anyone can test if its working correctly or not using HWINFO Summary window.
    Note: Ryzen ucodes aren't tested so make sure you have image backup of Windows before proceeding.

    No offense, but I'm not about to play about with a microcode that could make my CPU non-operational and void my warranty in the process.
    Besides, AMD being affected by these security issues are minor in comparison to Intel and easily addressed with OS security patches which don't really need microcode updates... at the very least, Ryzern should be much less susceptible as well considering one needs actual access to the CPU in question by working from the computer itself.

    It doesn't void warranty at all, it doesn't mess with BIOS at all, the vmware ucode updater just applies the ucode at windows startup. If you observe performance issues, click on uninstall.bat and everything is removed.

    @THEBOSS619 can your tool be used to downgrade CPU microcode to an older version?

    I would like to use this uCode trick to overclock my locked Haswell CPU. :)

    I don't think it will work unless you rename that older uCode to FF and put them in vmware updater for it to work!
    I heard newer uCodes really lowered temps by 5-7C and allowed much stable clocks.
    Ask @judal57

    As @Vasudev said :) , But What you are asking for is not possible at all on software level to overclock a non K CPU's and it can only be made at BIOS level [Which means integrating the Microcode file to your BIOS file and flash it] :) , I don't know but theoretically it is not possible but practically... I might be wrong because I never tried it :)

    Google is your friend :)
