Perhaps this may be a really dumb question, but I couldn't find a conclusive answer online. I have an ASRock P67 B3 mobo back from the SB days along with my 2500k. I am having an issue with Windows 10 always showing (using?) 100% CPU usage, and it appears that the only fix is a BIOS update.

Before I do this, I want to know what will happen to my saved overclock and other various settings. I am under the impression that a BIOS update will completely erase all settings as one would think. If this is true, is there any way I can back up my saved profiles that are currently in my BIOS?

From what I've seen, yes it will. Is there a way to save your bios settings? My board has this function.

Save settings, update, put in settings.

Dang, so they they figured out how to make a GUI boot menu... but yet somehow they haven't figured out how to export saved preferences to an external device?

Yes, it will reset everything back to defaults when you update the BIOS/UEFI. Most UEFI's today will allow you to save your settings to a profile, but in most cases the saved profile won't work in the updated UEFI.

Best thing to do is to get out those old things called a paper and pen and right down the settings, and then reapply them after the update.
