BIOS updates are released when newer hardware such as CPUs come out years after the motherboard's release. It is generally not recommended if you';re system is running fine, especially if you are not adding new hardware. There's also always a risk when updating BIOS such as a power outage or file error and if the BIOS ROM chip can't recover itself, you'll have to semd the motherboard back if under warranty. | Report abuse Aneesh@4GHz April 20, 2010 3:21:19 PM Best answer selected by Aneesh@4GHz. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>Do i need to update my bios?> Related ressources: ForumNeed to update BIOS , but have no idea what I'm doing.
