    I can't guarantee that it is, but from the information from you and the asus site, it looks like it a rev2.0

    there are always risks with bios flashing, its about managing those risks. I have flashed hundreds of devices, not just mobos, and have seen 1 or 2 devices bricked for various reasons. Take some time to read the website of ur mobo manufacturer they will have instructions and recommendations. Nowdays most enthusiast boards give u the ability to flash within windows, its down to personal choice
