Hi

Yes we usually recommend using QFlash or FLASHSPI as opposed to the Windows application @BIOS  because of safety issues. You can of course use a bootable CD with the neccessary files on instead of a USB pendrive if you would rather.

Hi. Can someone tell me if I upgraded from F8 to F14 on my GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard whether I would lose my overclocking profiles that are saved in the bios ? Thanks.

If you flash on same BIOS...yes.
As you have BIOS switch,you can always flash other BIOS then working.

Btw,
BIOS (with profiles) or only BIOS profiles can be saved also on FAT32 USB flash drive.

Hi. I am a bit of a newbie with bios, can you explain a bit more ? My PC was overclocked by the company I bought it from, they had 2 bios profiles, one STOCK and the other OC. So if I save those to a USB stick I can just reload them and it will work exactly as before ? The reason I want to try the new bios is I am having USB 3.0 issues, I contacted Gigabyte support 4 days ago but the message is showing as unread still, so I thought I would try and fix it myself by trying the obvious.

Also can you explain what you mean by I have a BIOS switch ? Sorry for sounding so clueless.
