BIOS update

hey folks, I have been out of loop for a while, but now trying to catch on,
I saw new bios update and it made me wonder, should I go for it?
before I would not even hesitate to push that button, but taking in the account,
that CHV is such fine and fragile platform, made me ask you folks first.
I would appreciate any opinions and comments.
oh, and does new BIOS inherits settings from previouos or you have to
manually dial all settings over again? (quick settings save to file maybe?)
thank you all, you folks the best!

I refer you here concerning the BIOS update just because it wouldn't make sense for me to repeat what I said verbatim. I typically recommend keeping a hard copy document outlining all your BIOS settings just in case. I have seen a BIOS inexplicably reset itself. I hold the same credos for router configurations, etc. as well.

I have flashed mine 2 times. Once with EZ Flash and once with Asus AI. The first time the bios flashed fine, but it lost my SSD drive and I had to reformat. The second time in Asus AI was fast and easy and it all went fine.
