    So i currently on F7 bios i see F8 is Modify ET6 function. What does that mean? and F9 is Update CPU AGESA 1.5.0.0. So if i just update to F9 do i get everything F8 has. I am thinking about updating the BIOS.

    Help please.
     
  2. Yes, F9 will contain all previous revisions' updates. If you feel the release notes contain fixes/improvements that you'd benefit from, then update the BIOS. Personally, I always do it as a rule of thumb as BIOS updates often further improve the functionality of your product.

    ET6 is Easy Tune 6.

    Go ahead update bios and remember to load default bios setting after flashing bios. I suggest update bios in series as some bios new firmware string for mobo feature like u mention Easytune 6 then update F9 bios.

    I don't believe there is any point in installing them in sequence as each new bios completely overwrites the last as far as I know.
