    Why do you want to update it? Unless you're fixing a specific issue, it's not necessary to update the BIOS. Quite frequently we have conversations with folks that have turned their MB into a doorstop with a bad FLASH.

    Take Johnwill's advice. If you aren't having a bios problem, DO NOT UPGRADE! Flashing a chip is not all that reliable and can make your whole computer useless if it fails.
