Re: Happy Returns

My Gigabyte board is currently running F7 bios. Is it worth it to flash to F8?

I've had no performance issues.

My way of doing it is the following

First time the computer is assembled, update to the latest BIOS at the time

After that look at what the new ver offers and see if it sound like its worth it.

Then on servers at work any time the OS is wiped and reloaded (ie 2003 to 2008R2 or just being re-purposed) I run the HP firmware update DVD (it updates the bios/Raid controller/Nic/Harddrive/iLo and any other firmwares that are on the system)

What I don't do is just randomly grab a bios update and toss it on, on a currently fine system.
