    BIOS for R5E versus R5E/U3.1

    Latest BIOS for Rampage V Extreme/U3.1 is vers 3701 (2017/06/09). Latest BIOS for Rampage V Extreme is vers 3902 (2018/04/26). I own an R5E/U3.1 and the BIOS for R5E/U3.1 is almost a year older than BIOS for R5E, so I have wondered if they are meant to be interchangeable. ASUS tech support has told me "no" they cannot be interchanged. I ask because I wonder if 3902 contains mitigation against Spectre/Meltdown while 3701 does not, and if anyone has tried installing 3902 on a R5E/U3.1? Also, are these final versions and BIOS support has ended? Things run fine now and I hesitate to mess with it, but curious all the same. Thanks.
