    Should I update the BIOS on my new build?

    Just completed building my new PC (description in signature below) and updated all drivers.

    I am wondering, however, if I should update the BIOS. The version that came with the board is 0224 (2018.08.14), while the latest is 0602 (2018.10.31).

    The description for the latest version is enticing, promising

    - Improved system stability and performance.
    - Updated Microcode for 8-core CPU.
    - Improved DRAM stability.
    - Fixed USB device issue.

    All of these sound like important improvements (what was the USB device issue?), yet so far my computer is running smoothly. I know the adage is, "if it isn't broken don't fix it," but it's hard not to want to implement improved stability and performance.
