    They are the same.

    Not sure what program you need to use, but you'll likely have to force the flash due to check sum errors. Usual cautions apply: Don't flash the BIOS in Windows, flashing an unintended BIOS may brick your board etc.

    A copy of a modded Extreme BIOS (F8X) is located here. I'm afraid you're on your own as to how you apply it.

    I have to tell you if you have any problems this would likely for sure void your warranty. I nor Gigabyte support or condone cross-flashing in anyway.

    Now that's out of the way you sure can

    I have flashed UD5 and Extreme into a UD4P board so I am sure you will be fine, provided your flash all goes well.

    Good luck, and keep your warranty in mind if that matters to you
