I am not certain which BIOS version your motherboard came out with from factory, but the two BIOS versions at the Maximus XI Formula download webpage have the same ME firmware version:

BIOS 0506 ME FW v12.0.6.1120
BIOS 0602 ME FW v12.0.6.1120

Regarding updating the ME Firmware for the Intel Z300 chipset I strongly suggest that you read the following webpage at the win-raid.com forum:
https://www.win-raid.com/t596f39-Intel-Management-Engine-Drivers-Firmware-amp-System-Tools.html

.... see especially the sections titled "Warning for all CSME v12" and the following "Notice about CSME 12 FWUpdate Tool".

It used to be reasonably straightforward updating the Intel ME firmware upto v11. However, it is a different story now with the Intel Z300 chipset, as MOKICHU explained above.

EDIT: MOKICHU you and I both posted the same information at the similar time, because your post with the BIOS and ME fw versions was not there when I posted this. Cool!
