That is Award code version.
You need to find bios by pressing del in post and function key F9 to see the bios version.

Whether you have GA-X58A-UD3R (rev. 2.0) or (rev. 1.0) the Marvell drivers are the same. Further, I do NOT recommend Marvell for the 'boot' drive(s) unless you have (1) one SSD connected to it.

I'd first disconnect any drives (HDD or SSD) connected to the Marvell SATA ports, next install the driver(s) listed below, restart, shut down, and lastly connect a drive to the first Marvell SATA port (GSATA3_6).

1. Marvell Console Driver (SATA3) 1.0.0.1027 ; required
2. Marvell RAID Utility (SATA3) 4.1.0.1700 ; optional but install after Marvell Console Driver

If for some reason you want or need to update the BIOS then only use Q-Flash. Before doing so I recommend that you boot into the BIOS, Load Optimal settings, Save = 'Yes', reboot then follow the videos listed below. Afterwards redo whatever BIOS changes required e.g. if using AHCI then change back to AHCI problems see - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976

Nice 3-part video on Q-Flash:
