    Using the latest/greatest bios is not always the best option.
    Stable bios setups with version "X" won't necessarily be stable with a newer version "Y". While each new bios version has some fixes or enhancements, these changes may not help every user. It's unfortunate that there isn't a detailed list of the feature changes that accompany each new bios versions. We would all be better off if all mobo manufacturers provided a change log for each new bios version similar to the change logs provided by most software organizations.

    In most cases, you can flash back to your previous bios version if needed.
    Before you flash to a newer version, save your current saved bios profiles using Q-Flash to a floppy, usb, or hard drive (FAT16 or FAT32).

    **edit** Sometimes an official bios version is pulled due to problems with that version.

    Yes I noticed that Gigabyte US site doesn't give much info at all about BIOS updates. Considering it is the most critical code on the machine, I think they should post this info. Other manufacturers do post changelog with each revision.

    I agree, they just tell "Improve Memory/VGA card compatibilities" without telling us which brands or speed they tested with It would help alot.
