Will adding a X-Frame provide benefits while printing?

Should I add this X-Frame ( http://www.thingiverse.com/make:257182 ), will it add benefits while printing?

Nope... no obviously noticeable benefits noticed so far, except the looks.

I made my own version ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1846654 ) that fits better than the one you've suggested (I tried that beforehand and have it mounted on my first machine), but that better fit is solely for assembly benefits.
Speaking of which, the frame helps you holding the M10 rods in place and parallel during assembly and with my version you get your Z-Frame nuts approximately at the right distance.

This is a chicken-and-egg problem: You need a good printer in order to build a good printer! 🙂
