Looking to update the BIOS
BIOS Date: 10/16/15 11:00:35 Ver: 05.0000B (type: BIOS)
                Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5
Is there a newer one available?
My current BIOS date is 10/16/15 for version 05.00008
Is there a Gigabyte software that will search my PC  to find out the correct BOIS that is needed with my motherboard?
I don't know what version the board may have but the purchase was in 2016 and hope that helps

If you are not having any problems don't update the Bios. The bios updates are really for people that are having problems.
