Default Bios Update

As far as Bios go... is it an incremental flashes? or can i just get the latest revision and flash it to that? I have a Crosshair IV Formula from ASUS. Current BIOS is by American Megatrends Inc. Version 0801 5/03/10

It's generally advised not to do routine BIOS updates unless you are looking to fix a specific problem that is addressed by the update. If something unforseen happens while reflashing the BIOS, you could end up with a dead machine.
