you are absolutely correct. However for a few years now, especially ASUS 
has created some features like "crash free bios", "ez bios upgrade" and 
the like. I am sure there are other manufacturers that offer such 
things, but I do not often assemble non-Asus boards.

Anyway, those features make upgrading the Bios absolutely painless. And 
on top of it, recovering from a faulty bios upgrade is also a real snap.

So you might guess it: Steven uses an Asus Board.
And I myself use Asus whenever I can. One reason is the risk free Bios 
update thing, the other is their outstandingly silent fan control.

You should not jump to conclusions. Not anyone's motherboard necessarily 
is from Asus.;-)))

Kind regards
