Here - l i n k is what appears to be the BIOS revision history for that Cuba motherboard.

If you aren't experiencing any of the noted problems, I probably wouldn't worry about it right now either.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Updating the BIOS is "EASY"
"EASY" to do, and...."EASY" to mess up!!!
So, as the others have said, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

That being said, the primary reason for this post was to suggest that, should you need to update the BIOS, it's best to do it in small steps. This means going 2 or 3 versions above your current version and installing that, then going another 2 or 3 versions and installing that....and just keep on going in this manner until you get to the latest version.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
