The BIOS update will make your system more stable reducing the risk of lock-ups etc.
Reducing fan speeds is no doubt achieved by better monitoring the CPU temperature. That will reduce noise and save a minimal amount of energy.

You do have to take serious note of the warnings and make sure that the update is NOT interuppted else your motherboard may become unuseable.
