crosshair v formula bios help

my friend has a crosshair v formula motherboard and asus hasn't released anymore bios updates since 2012 so I was thinking would the bios from the crosshair v formula z work with the v formula?

Under no circumstances try to install a BIOS for a different motherboard. If you are lucky it will just refuse to install, if you are not, it could render the motherboard useless. Only ever attempt to install official BIOS updates specific to the motherboard. You can try modified BIOS updates, specific to your motherboard, at your own risk.

Best policy is to only update the BIOS if it actually necessary to make your PC work properly.

When I looked at both board specs the formula z has a 64mb bios n the Formula only a 32mb bios anyway. Was only wondering coz they haven't released an update since 2012 but thanks for the reply :)

I think we all have to accept, there comes a time when manufacturers no longer provide updates for their kit...
