    If it's a beta BIOS, leave it alone.
    Generally, we recommend, NOT flashing the BIOS unless you need to for some reason.

    IF there comes a time when you are say, 5-6 BIOS versions behind, then maybe flash to the newest non-beta version.
    Until then, it's really not necessary.

    Whenever you flash a BIOS, there is always the risk of it failing. Why push your luck if you don't "need" the newest BIOS version.

    Oh ok, Then i'll wait this time, i originally flashed the F5B Bios that came from Gigabyte Support months back, as there support was like might solve your front usb 2.0 issue that your having, not sure if that was the fix or not. Then when F5c came out on the site, i immediately updated to that one not thinking i should've waited til it was final

    This time i'll wait til final, then determine if i need it or don't need it, and go from there

    IF, I have no issues, I usually wait till the manufacturer is about 3-5 BIOSes ahead of me.
    I figure that by then, if there were any issues with the new BIOSes, they would have found them and pulled the BIOS by then.
