DELL PowerEdge R715 firmware upgrade (maybe BIOS too?). Where to go?

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
My Open Manage Administrator is telling me I need to update my firmware on my DELL PowerEdge R715 (Tag: 3B0KKQ1):

Firmware Version ..................................12.10.1-0001
Minimum Required Firmware Version .........12.10.2-0004

When I go to DELL support it only shows me this upgrade:
SAS_RAID_H700I_12.10.4-0001_A10_ZPE.exe (2MB)
Recommended 5/8/2012 12.10.4-0001, A10
Applies to:
PERC H700 Integrated

Is this the right one because it does not look like it.

I'm worried because my cooling fans are blasting at 100% right now for some reason.

Also, how do I know if my BIOS and BMC are up to date and how do I update them if so?
