Adding the microcode, if missing, is an easy task.

Core selection fix is much more difficult. To change settings in bios is no problem, to add something is a much bigger problem.

Any updates/hopes of getting a bios for the z170 ocf (ATX) that would support the 9th gen SKUs
Also are the 8th gen i3s( 8350k) confirmed working on the ATX ver?

leave that atx z170 oc formula alone.

there wont be any updates on that as is 2 generations older board and M version is better for ln2. they wont waste engineering time on making a bios for you ... 

Why should we? I guess him as well as me are just hoping to be able to use current Gen CPU without the need to update the MoBo as well.

I am wondering if MOCF and OCF Bios are so different?
Maybe it is easier to adjust MOCF bios to OCF than to add the Microcode/Core Selection. Still hoping someone will do it sometime. I would if I knew how to do it.

Were you running the Z170M OCF at the Intel event? LOL.

Looks like a ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming 9 from the pic.

Good luck with it. Expecting to see sub 4 minute 32M, I'm sure that's realistic!

Good news! Unless I can get hold of a Dark Z390, I'll keep my mocf around for another year. :)

We still need to keep volts up to 1.75v for 8/16 benchmarks just like 8700K/8086K or volts have to be lower?

Some people have issues with USB port on this mobo after lots times benching under Ln2.

Bcz the Polyfuse will break if temp lower than -40 degree.

here are 3 pictures of Polyfuse locations on this mobo .

You can remove the polyfuse and short both pad with tin . Then usb should work again.

I don't think so, taichi ultimate/phantom gaming 9 are the new top boards, with the mocf still keeping pace (slightly slower on core, but better mem). (at least that's my understanding)
