The system runs perfect! like new no problems so far except for the current one
Why risk a BIOS flash on a system that works great?

The first one might come in handy when configuring those SATA ports. The second allows newer CPUs to work with the board. The third one has got me stumped; it seems to be telling you that the BIOS update updates the BIOS.

Google "Bad BIOS flash" and you'll see why I don't recommend flashing a board unless the new BIOS does something you need.
