    Default Asus A8V Deluxe

    Just a question, do you thinks honestly think updating the bios from when this motherboard was released is important?

    I dont see advantages to updating bios, <-- idiot And i see a whole lot more disadvantages to updating the bios(ie f. it up)

    For normal to intermediate users, it usually isn't recommended to update the BIOS unless you're having stability issues or if the update adds features you want. Otherwise, if the system works fine, then you don't really need to flash the BIOS.

    For those of us who always want the latest and greatest, we tend to keep everything as up to date as possible, though, so will generally flash the BIOS at every revision.

    Again, that depends on the user. Hardcore enthusiasts will usually update whenever a new updated BIOS comes out, but there is no real need to update if you are not having any problems.

    Hm. I just bought this motherboard and I was going to flash it as soon as I had all the components.

    I didn't know there were disadvantages to updating...

    The only disadvantage is if you blow the flash. As long as you carefully follow the directions from the manufacturer's website, odds are slim you'll screw it up. If you do, however, you sometimes have to replace the EEPROM, which really sucks.
