    Help updating HERO IX BIOS - First Timer

    Current BIOS is v 0505 out of the box. I'd like to update to v0801 instead of v0906
    I've used the system for 4 or 5 days and I've read that I need to disconnect hard drives or clear the CMOS or rename the update file and I'm confused as well as nervous because I've heard if it aint broke, don't fix it. However v0505 seems old within the current convention, and I'm having issues connecting my monitor via DP (HDMI2 is fine) as well as the system recognizing my Arctis 7 headset via the USB I/O ports.
    I have downloaded every driver I can find as well as used windows update. GeForce Experience says I have the latest drivers as well.
    I've read different things other than what's in the manual so I'd be grateful for a step by step guide.
    Also there must be general "Best Bios" settings for headphones, DP high res displays. I'll worry about OC BIOS settings down the road.
    XMP is set to auto and using mostly stock BIOS settings.
    I have v0801 loaded on a flash drive. It's the only data on the drive. MAXIMUS-IX-HERO-ASUS-0801.CAP 16386KB
