Microcode update AMD
 
Hi,

I have two questions:

1) Do I have to enable microcode updates in the BIOS of my Crosshair
IV Formula to activate microcodes push in the CPU by the module
"microcode" ? (AMD Phenom X6 1090T)

2) Does anyone know, what these microcodes do? They are fixes for...
...what?

Thank you very much in advance for any help!
Best regards,
mcc
