If its running OK then leave it, you do not mention what BIOS you are using now so it is also difficult to now if an update will be useful.

A BIOS update is a last resort fix for major problem.

An incorrect flash or error during the flash can leave your motherboard as a useless pile of junk :0(

My advice is leave well alone.

Good advice.

However, I have an M2N4 SLI and upgraded, on the advice of Asus, a few years ago.

I found it quite traumatic (in fact I posted here about it!) but need not have worried.

It was quite straightforward, and Asus did have a foolproof "go-back" system at the time.

Have a look at the Asus support site, and in the Asus forums.
