    Question ROG-MAXIMUS-X-HERO_BIOS_Upgrade ?

    Hi Tech Guys,
    I have the ROG MAXIMUS X HERO M/B without the Wi-Fi integrated onto the M/B
    I am going to upgrade the BIOS
    From ROG MAXIMUS X HERO BIOS 1602 (date 2018/07/10)
    To
    ROG MAXIMUS X HERO BIOS 1801 (date 2018/12/21)
    Can I run the BIOS upgrade utility in the BIOS and upgrade the latest
    Version off my USB drive ?
    Or is it more complicated than that ?
    Should I reset the current BIOS back to Factory Default settings ?
    Should I upgrade to BIOS version 1704 (2018/10/02)
    Then to BIOS 1801 (date 2018/12/21) ?
    Or can I skip this 1704 version ?
    I am making an assumption that this is the correct BIOS to download
    https://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards...HelpDesk_BIOS/
    As I know there are 2 versions of this motherboard one with Wi-Fi and the other without wifi.
    One BIOS does both motherboards ?
    Thanks for your help Guys.........

    Yes you can upgrade the bios from a USB drive from within bios, very easy, it will reboot a couple times after upgrade to upgrade firmware
    You can skip the other bios version without issue
    The web page you linked looks like the correct bios for non WiFi
    Don't know if same bios for both boards, just download the one from support page for your board

    There is a nvidia graphics card forum in these forums.

    That's just plain wrong. There can be microcode updates for the CPU like for critical security issues (like SPECTRE/MELTDOWN), there can be bios improvements, memory compatibility issues. Updating the bios isn't as risky as it once was but it's a double edged sword.

    On the one hand, the is that saying yes "if it aint broke, don't fix it". But on the other hand you also have the issue to update the bios so you won't GET the issues the update addresses in the first place.

    Take me for example. I'll be building a M10F + 9900k system soon, the first thing i'll do is update the bios. Why? Cause the patchnotes specifically say 2 of the 3 issues i mentioned above.

    - Improved system stability and performance.
    - Updated Microcode for 8-core CPU.
    - Improved DRAM stability.
