I just noticed that there was a F2 version of the bios. I have a e8400, is it worth it to update the bios? If it's not broken don't fix it?

Also, a question for anyone that owns a DS4, I've had it for a month and this isn't a problem or anything but with the giant heat sink in the middle of the board, there's a somewhat loose piece of metal that has a logo, thats in between the copper. It says Ultra Durable 2 (Funny name since it does seem fairly loose to be ultra durable). It doesn't seem to have much purpose other than displaying a logo but is this the same with your board?

Wow that BIOS is really new. I'm still on F1 and I have zero issues. Judging by what they added to the BIOS (if that's all it really is) I'm not flashing. I'm a big supporter of "if it ain't broke don't fix it!"

And my "ultra durable" isn't loose but I don't really see it as a problem if you removed it or just left it alone.

Take a quick double check that it is what I think it is, which is marketing crap that would make the heatsink designer throw up. RIP IT OFF (in a careful way :p )
