Hi, If the system runs OK, there's no reason for updating the BIOS.

If for some reason you need to update BIOS then you only get the newest one.

If it works, don't fix it... but here's how you update with minimal issue.

Step 1: Download the BIOS file from the ASUS support website.

Step 2: Extract the BIOS out of the archive.

Step 3: Locate a USB flash stick and put the BIOS file (Sabertooth-Z77-xxx.CAP) onto the flash stick (formatted to FAT 16 or FAT 32)

Step 4: Boot into bios, go under Advanced Mode, navigate to the Tools tab, select ASUS EZ Flash 2 Utility. From there, select the bios file. And WAIT. If the bios looks like it froze, it isn't. It is updating. DO NOT TOUCH THE COMPUTER UNTIL BIOS SAYS IT IS FINISHED.

And you're done.
