Based on what I've seen in this thread so far, I recommend staying with the BIOS that you have right now because otherwise you could end up with nothing but problems. It looks to me like various owners of both the P8P67 and P8Z68 series who have a Sandy Bridge CPU end up with problems when they get a newer BIOS.
I am using 1850 and I am extremely happy with it. Only, I don't remember where I got it from: it's not on ASUS's website. However, I think it was the last BIOS released that did not yet support Ivy Bridge, and I think that the Ivy Bridge-supporting BIOS versions are the ones that introduce problems to Sandy Bridge owners. At least, that's what it seems like so far.
In other words, I think that if it's not broken, then don't fix it. :)
