    Just got computer beeps with my MSI z270 Arsenal after KB4074588.

    After 3 long hours.... the problem was with fast boot...with "temp"BIOS released by MSI for Spectre and meltdown.

    When i went to my motherboards page : MSI Z270 ARSENAL, the latest BIOS as per the thread (7A68v15) HAS VANISHED (see above screenshot) from MSI support page:

    When downgraded to BIOS version 7A68v14 the problem has been resolved.
    BUT......

    Yah, their 'new' BIOS still does not immunize against Spectre.

    By contrast, EVGA fixed this over a month ago on my X299.

    When people ask why it still hasn't been fixed on the MSI forums, there is never a straight answer.

    Their customer support is lousy and it is the main reason that I don't buy stuff from them anymore.

    My first X299 boards were MSI but they were both switched out the minute EVGA released the FTW (and then the X299 Dark).

    Funny thing a month i ago i updated the BIOS of my ASUS Z270F to it´s latest version because of Spectre and Meltdown and my system became an highly unstable mess that would crash constantly for no reason... I had to revert to another BIOS to fix the problem so no security updates to me at least for now...
