No New Bios Fixes Bugs...
All bios are beta until they don't make anymore for the board...at that point it will be the final and most stable

it wont necesarily change everything it's mostly to help support new features for new processors and fix things wrong with previous versions...
It is possible that it will add some things to help you OC...it should show you the revisions on the webpage...I'll go take a look

well from what I found it really doesn't change anything but booting from a usb drive...I would wait until there is a major upgrade...as far as the Asus site...strange that they don't tell you what they are updating...if you want download their flash utility and read the instructions carefully!!!
FLASHING BIOS WRONG = SYSTEM FAILURE
