New Updates for Z390 Motherboards today.  Patches an Intel security vulnerability:
 
BIOS 1.10 (E399 Dark) / 1.11 (E397 FTW)
  • Update ME firmware to 12.0.85.1869v9.1 for Intel security vulnerability.
 


Windows Installation
  • Download the correct .zip file below for your motherboard:        
         131-CS-E399-KR - EVGA Z390 Dark - v1.10
         123-CS-E397-KR - EVGA Z390 FTW - v1.11
  • First go into your BIOS and load defaults, save and exit
  • Close all open programs.
  • Go into the folder where you unzipped this package and double-click update.bat
  • Press Y to start the flash process
  • DO NOT TURN OFF POWER OR RESET DURING THE FLASH PROCESS
  • After the flashing is finished, the system will automatically shut down. Then power on again and go into BIOS to setup.
  • NOTE: If flash box immediately closes after flash attempt, the flash may need to be ran from a CMD prompt with administrator privileges or DOS version.

  • Reboot the machine and go into the system BIOS

    Is this 1.10 update not available for the Z390 Dark anymore? The link does not work and if I go to support site it only gives me version 1.09.
    Never mind I think I found it.
     
    Edit: Nope says incorrect image file - no idea where to find bios 1.10 for Z390 Dark. Cmon EVGA fix the links. Trying to find this bios is like finding a needle in a haystack. Already loaded defaults and can't get the bios.

    Must have been a bit of a hiccup on our file server or you picked a time when maintenance was being done to it.  I didn't change the links, and it seems like it's downloading now, so maybe it was just a gremlin.

    Try clearing your browser cache.  If you have a failed download sometimes, it stays cached for a while (it even happens to me when setting up the drivers to go on the website).  You can also try copy/pasting the link in a private/incognito mode window.
     
    If you still get a broken link, let me know and I'll clear the cache from our side.

    Well it is not a big deal for me now as I was able to get the bios and update with it by searching your website for it. No worries.
