Beta Bios question

Hi All,

Just a quick question in relation to beta versions of bios for motherboards; should I update it with beta version or should I wait for a full released version? Someone once told me that the beta are not really stable and it's better to wait for full releases. is it true?

personally i only update my bios if i have a specific problem, and the beta release notes say that this problem is cured by the update.

+1 For Mickey's answer. I'd only update BIOS to fix a problem, or to use added features. But I'd only suggest a beta version if no other avenue was available. You can completely brick your PC in BIOS, so if it aint broke, don't fix it applies. A Guy
