Just as subject says.
Firmware LLGi.
Attribute doesn't appear in any tools i tried (Intel SSD toolbox, AIDA64, CrystalDiskInfo).

I know that last retail firmware is LLKi, is there any way to update to it?

Hello, Nuck-TH.

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

Please take into consideration, that the OEM SSDs usually have a custom firmware and different adjustments, or changes performed at the firmware level, by the system manufacturer, to include or to limit certain features.

 

We advise you to contact your system manufacturer, in your case Lenovo*, to get further information regarding fixes or support for your SSD.  We will proceed to close this inquiry now.

 

If you need further assistance regarding any other Intel® product, please post a new question.

 

Best regards,

Hi @Nuck-TH 

Did you tried the Intel® Memory and Storage Tool (Intel® MAS)?

GUI of this tool crashes with unhandled exception (Windows 7 x86_64, .NET 4 and VC Runtime 2019 both x86 and x64 installed).
Using CLI version shows:
FirmwareUpdateAvailable : No known update for SSD. If an update is expected, ple
ase contact your SSD Vendor representative about firmware update for this drive.

And querying for SMART attribute BE shows no results, nor it is present in all attributes list.
-hdatemperature shows No Results as well.

Hi @Nuck-TH 

1. The Intel MAS Tool doesn't support Windows 7. I wasn't aware that you run still Windows 7. 

2. In this case you may use Intel® SSD Firmware Update Tool for firmware update. Before using this tool, please read Getting Started notes on the download page. In addition please read the User Guide.

FUT doesn't list 525 series as supported, nor other tools do. But this doesn't answer anything.

Message anbout no update exactly same as in MST CLI.
This lists on downloads are unreliable. Manual and release notes don't mention support for 525 series.

Question about lack of temperature attribute still persists btw.

According to the datasheet for the Intel 525 Series of mSATA SSDs (found here: https://www.intel.me/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-specifications/ssd-525-specifica...), the Drive PCB Temperature (0xBE) S.M.A.R.T. attribute *is* supported.

I also have one of these mSATA SSDs (though slightly different part number, SSDMCEAC180B3) and, as you can see in the attached AIDA64 capture, it *does* display the drive's temperature.

On my 525, both  HWiNFO and Speccy, report the same temperature:

Hello, @Nuck-TH 

 

Good day,

 

Thank you for contacting the Intel Community Support and thank you to the community for always offering assistance.

 

Based on the firmware, model and serial number, I noticed this is an OEM SSD, these drives usually have little adjustments or changes performed at firmware level by the system manufacturer; it would be weird that one of them involves the temperature not being displayed, but is a possibility, and I'm also not sure if you can test it in a different system.

 

The only possible recommendation I have in this scenario is to check the downloads page of the system where the drive came pre-installed for a firmware update for this specific part; it is not uncommon for system manufacturers to provide their own firmware updates for specific components they implement in their systems. You may also contact the system manufacturer directly for more information.

 

Best regards,
