My rule about BIOS updates is if it ain't broke don't fix it, translated if you have no problems you should not touch your BIOS as it is very easy to get it wrong, even computer professionals are wary, and if you do you've completely buggered up your motherboard

I agree with mikef™. Don't update the BIOS for the sake of it. Potentially hazardous.
