Hi everyone,
I was just looking at my BIOS ver. and noticed it's a couple years old. Would it benefit me at all to go ahead and update it to the most current one? Also, if I should update it then which one do I pick? I have 4 to choose from: R01-B1 through R01-B4
This is my current system:

    The problem is that there is no changelog that tells you what version R01-A4 will change on your computer.

    I may be wrong, but I think you can only upgrade to version R01-A4. R01-BX versions must be for a different motherboard revision. Also, if your desktop works perfectly, why do you want to upgrade uefi-bios?

    Well when I look at the drivers section it only gives me R01-BX for my PC. I used my SN so I would imagine it only pulls up what's compatible with my system. Anyway, the reason I was asking is because the BIOS I'm currently on just seems a little outdated. If it's not necessary then I won't bother. I basically just wanted to know if I needed it or not. I'm not having any issues or anything but I still was curious.
