you have to read what the bios patches fix. most of the new ones for b75/xx77 line going to be for new cpu and ram code or windows 8 bug fixes. most times you dont have too if it working fine.

It depends, let me explain why...

I'm not that much of an expert about OCing, but I've been alot into reading about it and learning from it lately. Now, for one, in an overclocking situation, updating your BIOS will helpful because of the stability improvements and compatibility improvements the updates offer. So in an OCing situation, it would be better and more helpful to update your BIOS to the latest version.

In an casual, everyday multi-usage, it wouldn't quite be necessary. You could... but apparently, there's a chance where you could potentially damage your motherboard I've heard.

Anyways, as said, it depends on the scenario.
