As additional information, the bios file for the Z420 v.3.92 contains the following microcodes:


¦#¦CPUID¦  Platform ID   ¦Revision¦   Date   ¦Type¦ Size ¦ Offset ¦Last¦
¦1¦306E4¦ED (0,2,3,5,6,7)¦  42C   ¦2018-01-25¦PRD ¦0x3C00¦0x580060¦Yes ¦
¦2¦206D7¦ 6D (0,2,3,5,6) ¦  713   ¦2018-01-26¦PRD ¦0x4C00¦0x584060¦Yes ¦
¦3¦206D6¦ 6D (0,2,3,5,6) ¦  61C   ¦2018-01-30¦PRD ¦0x4800¦0x589060¦Yes ¦
¦4¦206D5¦ 6D (0,2,3,5,6) ¦  513   ¦2011-10-13¦PRD ¦0x4800¦0x58D860¦Yes ¦


After you update you can check that the these codes are in fact being used in e.g. SiSoftware Sandra in Processors -> Microcode.

If you are running an Ivy Bridge v2 CPU (306E4) you should see the last three digits as 42C
