If I buy a new motherboard I update to the newest bios as soon as I have the unit built, OS installed & it's running right.
The reason for this is if something goes wrong & the flash fails I can RMA the motherboard.
If it is a older unit, if it works right don't fix it !
The only reason to flash the bios on a older unit is to add support for newer CPU's if you are upgrading or if it will fix a problem you're having.
