With other vendors, when I've seen posts referencing a beta, they usually have a dedicated sub section on the download page. I remember firmware for gpu's sometimes needing to be requested, but not a mobo bios.

I've personally always kept my bios, drivers and even firmware on hardware updated. Usually the same thing with software.

Software - Sure. As up to date as possible.

Updating firmware/BIOS just for the sake of it = bad habit.

i had to contact msi support and ask them for a beta bios, some of us like to tinker with our mobos,
i have my board registered on the msi site so it was prety easy to do

I contacted them about my MSI Creation motherboard, no-one to back to me, so I called them, they told me they never had a beta BIOS for my board, but usually if one board has a beta BIOS, most boards do, so I think they just lied to me.

One more example of "It never happened to me so therefore it didn't happen at all around the world".

Classic stupid with a side of dumb. Not even going to bother to explain why it's a bad idea.

Chalk it up to personal opinion then.

I don't see any issues at all keeping things current on a personal pc. It's something I have been doing for 25+ years already. I have never ran into any issues bricking hardware and maybe worst case scenario would be having to flash a bios back. What can I say, I like to tinker with things. I'll even take things apart just to see what's going on inside them. LOL I used to get in trouble as a kid for taking my toys apart. If it had screws holding it together, that meant I could open it up and explore.

Anyway this is off topic for the thread...
