OK so hello from me too guys! First time writing here! I have a question for you! Long story sort i have GA-Z170X-Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0) never updated bios. Now with all the vulnerabilities and all, and cause i will format my PC, is it needed to update my BIOS to the latest 22f (released 2018/03/09) and if so how easy it is to do so? Thanks in advance, any help will be appreciated!

F22f was released for the GA-Z170N-WiFi v2.0. I've confirmed that the new microcode does include the Spectre patch.
Bad news = 33% performance hits on NVMe IOPS for me, at least with a 6th gen Intel i7-6700 CPU and a Samsung 950 Pro. But to be fair, this was to be expected, and testing confirms it. Blame Intel. But, I do want to thank Gigabyte for providing the update regardless.
