Hi, i have an i3 4130, so i will update to i7 4790, my mobo is a H81m-k, so it is really necessary update my bios for install my new cpu.

And what are the bios update advantages?

Sorry for my bad english
 
If your bios level supports a 4790, do nothing.
cpu-z will tell you what you have now.

Unless you are having some other issues that a bios update fixes, it is not recommended that you update just on speculation.
A failed bios flash can be nasty to recover from.

...I miss the days of the socketed BIOS chip. Just did one recently, and man was it nice.
