    Do I need to reset BIOS after update?

    Hi,
    I'm thinking of updating to the latest BIOS for the ROG MAXIMUS XII HERO, what I'm wondering is:
    Should I reset (cmos resett) BIOS to default and re-apply all of my settings after updating BIOS or can I skip it and just have my old settings without resetting?

    Hi rstolpe1988

    The bios automatically resets after a bios update, you'll have to reenter all your settings.
