R5E BIOS on R5E/U3.1

Hello,

I was wondering if it's ok to use a R5E bios on a R5E/U3.1 board. They are the same as far as I know, but the bios page for the R5E/U3.1 is always behind on bios version compared to the bios page of R5E.

For example:
Latest R5E/U3.1 bios is 3701, which is the same as the 3701 for R5E
But, latest R5E bios is 3801 and there's even a beta bios version 3902 with no description

So, should I wait for asus to properly update R5E/U3.1 page or can I just flash with the R5E bios.

Thank you.

My board is R5E / U3.1 and I updated it to R5E bios is 3801 and now to 3902 beta bios without any problem. Overclocking 4.3GHz on a i7 6950x and 40GB 2400MHz from GSkill running at 3000MHz
