Would you update ur bios even if the computer is running fine ? I remember years ago updating the bios and losing the overclock

that took so long to achieve. I'm not sure if there's any true benefit.

You shouldn't update your BIOS unless you have a reason to,.. check the change logs for the BIOS updates, and see if they actually have an update you require,.. mainly new hardware support CPU, RAM,.. or if you are experiencing issues/bugs that are fixed in a new version of the BIOS.

Some people would say always update to latest bios, I don't agree, if everything works fine with no issues leave it be. Usually you only have to update is if and when you upgrade your cpu or memory to give them better support.
