Intel releases Microcode to improve X299 Core-X Cascade Lake Overclocking

Intel has released a microcode update which reportedly increases the overclocking potential of the company's X299 Core-X series of Cascade Lake series processors. These CPUs include the Core i9-10980XE, Core i9-10940X, Core i9-10920X and Core i9-10900X. 

This microcode update is said to improve the "voltage-based overclocking functionality" of its latest processors, recommending that anyone who wished to overclock affected products should update their motherboard's BIOS files. Intel has mentioned, ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, and EVGA in its announcement, which means that these five manufacturers should have BIOS updates ready for its X299 motherboards. 

Unfortunately, Intel has not revealed how much these BIOS changes will impact Cascade Lake-X series overclocking. Intel has also recommended that users of Cascade Lake-X processors identify their motherboard's microcode using Processor Identification Tool, without listing the microcode version of its overclock-improving update. 
 
Users of Cascade Lake-X processors should update their motherboard's BIOS files to their latest versions to ensure the highest overclocking potential from their chips. That said, it remains unknown how much this update will impact the overclockability of Cascade Lake-X processors. 

Intel's update on its Core-X series processor microcode is available to read here

So where in Intel Process Identification Utility does it tell you what microcode you are running or is this just a scam for intel to get you to install spyware on your PC ?

EDIT: FOUND IT (before update I am on 2000064 & new bios bumps me to 2000065 so something new, just not sure what !)
