    Hello everybody!

    I own an Asus P7P55D motherboard with a first generation Core i5 760 with CPUID 106e5.
    I'm trying to update my motherboard to the latest microcode update Intel released somedays ago.

    I already managed to update to version 5, but this is not an upgrade as Windows already contains this update.

    But version 6 contained inside the latest release, and it's not available yet in Windows, is larger in size!!
    So MMtool refuses to insert it.
    I managed to load it through Intel tools and I must say that I noticed a performance difference (maybe it's placebo...)

    So, does anyone knows how to update the bios with a larger file?

    Thank you!
