Default ITE Gigaraid IT8212F Bios/Driver updates that we do not get..

All you do is download the latest off the various websites. You never use
the drivers and BIOS on Gigabyte....they are always out of date.

You can't as you can't update the MoBo Bios..

ITE have a flash utily to update the BIOS...see the website.
It's true that you can't flash the Silicon Image chip/BIOS.
