Update board??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have the EVGA 780i mobo and I haven't updated to the P04 bios. Is it important to update the mobo and will it help me to OC?

Generally new bios are more stable and allow for higher overclocks. Its not always true, but its probably a good idea to get the newer ones as long as people aren't posting about issues the new ones have.
