Hello, I have the motherboard that is listed above, and I am wondering how to update my BIOS. Nothing is wrong with my computer or anything, I just like to have all of my software up-to-date to get the best performance I can.

I have never updated a BIOS before, so I am completely new to this. Would appreciate any help, thanks!

Okay, so I download the latest BIOS update file from MSI's website, it was a zip file. So I uploaded that onto my USB with the program that you sent me to. So now I just reboot my computer and run from the USB to install the BIOS update?

Also, about clearing the CMOS, do I just do that if the computer doesn't boot properly?

Also, what about the flash utility that my motherboard comes with? I believe it's called "Winki" or something? Would that be easier and safer?

Really does not matter just as long if you are not doing it under windows. (like life update)
There is instruction there how to use the tool, after update clear cmos.
