How to downgrade bios from 3.61 to 3.60 HP Z400 because GPU gets hot in idle

Hi, I updated my old bios (3.57 i believe) because i switched from an xeon w3565 to a xeon x5690 so my gtx970 doesn't get bottlenecked.

Now my GPU stands at 60°-70°C while doing nothing.

It is also possible that just getting a better power supply would fix this since i am pretty much at my psu limit 475W..

But i want to try to downgrade my bios to older versions to see if the problems exists mainly because of the bios version.

How do I do that? When i try to select older versions via F10 Usb flash it says they are not valid (because they are older)

Thanks a lot for your help!!
