what motherboard do you have? as bios is on the motherboard, not cpu

also, do you have to update as BIOS isn't something you update just because you want to, it can have negative effects if it goes wrong.

Well, MSI show you how on website for the bios

and looking at what is there, I would actually suggest you do it - https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/h81m-p33
As you on version 1.2, there are 9 bios versions since yours. You only need the last one. They all improve the stability of the PC.

which version of windows are you running?
as you probably want to update the chipset and Intel management engine interface driver, they are on the drivers tab
Chipset driver is under System & Chipset drivers
Intel Management Engine Interface is under Other drivers - it helps if the version of this is about same age as BIOS.
