If your current BIOS is working fine, then there is no need to update. Flashing the BIOS can be risky and it may cause problems. I haven't updated my Asus BIOS and it works perfectly.

i think you are talking about the bios for the p5n32-e SLI not the p5n32-e SLI PLUS i nearly fell for that one...

the reason i was looking at it is because i have just started OC'ing and have heard that the newer bios help somtimes.
