    Usually there should be release notes that tell you what has been fixed/added.
    & yes sometimes new BIOS do increase performance but in general if you don't know that you have a problem don't bother.

    There's no point updating the bios on that board for overclocking as the bus can only be set to 100,133,166 and 200.
