Unless there is a specific problem that the beta BIOS fixes that is a must-have, I try not to run anything other than the latest official BIOS. There is always some risk when you flash it, and the more you do it, the higher the risk.

Sometimes in life, you need to take risks.

I've used beta BIOSes on from multiple manufacturers (Gigabyte, Asus, MSI, eVGA) and haven't had one issue with any of them. In fact I think I had encountered less issues to those who stuck with the older non-beta counterparts.

I've used them too, BUT only when there was a serious problem they cured. Why flash the BIOS every time they add something you don't need, like newer CPU support? I'd rather have a working computer than a bricked mobo. I've never personally bricked a mobo. However, there is an entire thread over on [H] about bricked P8P67/Pro/Deluxe models with the 1305 BIOS.

Do you mean like flashing a vanilla P67P8 BIOS onto e.g. a P8P67 Pro?

I'm wondering the same
The B2 --> B3 scheme ends in June though and I'm not sure Z68 will be out that soon.

I've never heard of anyone doing it. Plus, the version numbers don't match up anymore.
