Corsair One BIOS Update?
Good afternoon Corsair and gentlemen! I am interested in updating the BIOS of the C1's MSI Z270I motherboard. The current version we all have is E7A66IZ1.4QF (4.QF) dated 2/3/2017. On MSI website for the MSI Z270I, they're driver nearest that date is 2/6/2017 v. 1.4.

I'm assuming even though dated 3 days later that it included the same updates which were:

- Improved Intel 750 NVME compatibility. :bigeyes:
- Improved memory compatibility. :bigeyes:
- Enhanced M2 Genie function. :bigeyes:
- Improved M2 device compatibility. :bigeyes:

Since then, there have been three additional updates to the BIOS.


- Improved memory compatibility. :bigeyes:
- Improved Samsung NVME 960 compatibility. :bigeyes:
- Support Intel Optane Memory.


- Updated micro code.
- Fixed some USB2.0 devices will show yellow mark after resuming from S3


- Fix system sometimes fail to shutdown
- Fix S3 issue

- Corsair, for the sake of memory issues and those of us who most likely want to update our boards with the Samsung 960 PRO NVME ourselves and don't have NVME currently. (I have the original PRO Model with 1080GTX).

- Is Corsair looking into soon providing an update for our motherboards with the above fixes/improvements? or Will MSI's update be the solution without destroying/messing with our C1s?

Thank you!

BIOS Update
I have the same concern and am waiting for Live Update... to update!
Note that the recent Ti, PEGO issues, has a 4.QQ BIOS.

Let me check with our software team and see why BIOS updates haven't been pushed to you. You should be getting them through MSI LiveUpdate 6.

Corsair Dustin,

Thank you for checking in on this my friend. No BIOS updates have been available since I received the C1 back in June. You're always there with an answer, thank you Sir.

So the reason you haven't seen a BIOS update is because there haven't been any publicly released BIOS updates. We are working on one but have to make sure it doesn't overwrite important information within the BIOS that identifies the system, saves your Windows key, etc. There have been newer BIOS releases added to newer Corsair One builds, but a broad BIOS update is still pending.

Well thank you for the update Corsair Dustin. I appreciate it very much.

Hi will this bios update resolve the Intel ME vulnerability bug?

Corsair Dustin 11-21-2017 06:08 PM

We're looking into the Intel ME vulnerability bug presently.

it's very long before receiving BIOS updates when it's 5 after our version

zguy85 11-21-2017 10:53 PM

Well to be fair it's four, but would definitely give me much more confidence to know that one is on the way sooner than later and absolutely understood that the update has to be tried and tested before release.

Corsair Dustin 11-22-2017 12:58 PM

There has been a persisting bug in BIOS drops preventing us from releasing them in the wild. It's something we're working with MSI on solving.

Thanks for the update Corsair Dustin! Really appreciate the feedback! Corsair Dustin, is that your cat as your profile picture?

Corsair Dustin 11-27-2017 01:16 PM

It is! Her name is ZoŽ, she's 11. :)

She's beautiful. Haven't had a cat since I was a kid. If I were to add a new member to the family she would be like ZoŽ!

Thank you! I actually have two tortoiseshell tabbies, love them both dearly, can't imagine my life without them.
