Hi guys,

I'm debating if I should update my BIOS, I've not done it before but would feel confident in doing so.

I was checking the m/b site the other day for any updated drivers and had a look at the BIOS update section. If there weren't any aplicable to me then I wouldn't have even bothered thinking about it but there is. I have the Devil's Canyon i5 4690K. I'm not having any problems with the system. Any advice would be brilliant. Thank you.

Z97-K BIOS 0330
1. Enhance compatibility for new Anniversary Edition(G3258) and Devil's Canyon CPU(i7-4790K, i5-4690K).
2. Optimize overclocking function and performance for new Anniversary Edition(G3258) and Devil's Canyon CPU(i7-4790K, i5-4690K).

Seconded. While updating BIOS isn't as scary as it was in the old days (today most motherboards keep a backup version of the old bios in case of problems), you're better off updating it only when strictly necessary.
