Aorus Z390 Ultra, F6 BIOS vs F10b BIOS?

Like the title says.

I built my current rig back in January of 2019. Updated to the latest BIOS available for my Aorus Z390 Ultra at the time, which was F6. Dialed in a mild OC, which passed stability testing, and haven't had any issues for the past 1.5~ years.

I still check in on my MOBO's support page from time to time, though. Noticed that the Z390 Ultra's BIOS is up to F10b, which contains some microcode updates, a BIOS refresh, and a "fix [for] CPU Vcore and power behavior."

Not sure what the "fix" is, and there's no detailed notes (that I can see) beyond that overly simplistic bullet point. I don't know if this "fix" would even affect me, since I use a manual vCore + LLC for my OC. And, I'm assuming, due to the microcode updates, if I did flash the new BIOS, I'd have to start from scratch and re-test all of my known-stable OC settings?

Can anyone with any experience provide any input as to whether it'd be advisable to update my BIOS? Or is this a "don't try to fix what isn't broken" situation?

Thanks in advance for any helpful replies!

TL;DR: Should I bother updating my BIOS if my system is stable as is? I only use my rig for gaming, and, as far as security goes, I keep Windows, etc., up to date.
