what bios do you recommend for my board?

Most motherboards shipped should have the latest BIOS installed. If not, then it's definitely the newest release from the manufacturer.

@idwt general rule of thumb is never update the bios unless it fixes and issue you have with the current bios or adds support for a new feature but yes you can update it from your mothboards website

I believe @dreamcast4599 is talking about the updated BIOS version of their board. Not a completely different incompatible BIOS.

 

Ex: Asus BIOS 3002 or BIOS 3004. They're asking if they should update from 02 to 04.


CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 | GPU: EVGA GTX 1060 3GB | Motherboard: ROG Strix B450-F gaming | RAM: G.Skill Aegis CL16 3000mhz 16GB 

Hard Drives: Samsung 860 Evo 500GB, WD 1TB | Case: Rosewill T500 PRISM | PSU: PowerSpec 750W 80 Plus Gold Fully Modular 

Monitors: Acer KG240 144Hz / Acer V203H 60hz

This is very very untrue. Only if a serious BIOS bug is caught after release or if a new revision is released with new CPU support will boards be updated OOTB.

Maybe the OP should mark this as the best answer :)
