If you're having problems, or if you do heavy overclocking and the BIOS update helps somehow, then update.

If you are not having any issues, I would not recommend updating. The way I see it, its an unnecessary risk to brick your board. There is even a warning on that BIOS page right above the DL's stating this.

It's all in the "Description" box. Look here;

http://europe.asrock.com/support/download.asp?cat=BIOS

If there were more aspects the update changed, they would be listed in that box.

EDIT: Link only provided to show other "description" boxes for other BIOS updates

When it comes to BIOS updates, don't fix it if it ain't broke.
