Default Updating BIOS

Is there a "best" time to update a board"s BIOS? Is it a good idea to do a fresh windows install at the same time?

There is on "best" time as you simply have to decide whether updating the bios is going to benefit you or not.

And no you don't need to do a fresh install as it makes no difference.
