    Y u want to UPDATE the BIOS ?? any big problem or any glitches ??

    If u r using any other brand Mobo like EVga, Gigabyte , asus the Bios can be updated without any fear , BUT

    Intel is very strict in RMA now a days , also they dont even RMA any bios failure on the update , most of the brand wont RMA on bios update failure sometimes some brands do it !!

    Flasing ur BIOS if u most important & if u dont have any option to solve then u can proceed make sure all the programs are shutdown antivirus too & U have UPS !!

    Unless there's something wrong with your current BIOS that can be solved with a newer version, flashing a BIOS just because there's a newer version is not advisable.

    It's like overclocking your CPU from 3.0 GHz to 3.01 GHz. You won't notice any difference. And flashing a BIOS carries more risk than mild overclocking. If somethng goes wrong, your motherboard may become unuseable.
