That's not long enough. From what I have read you should let it run for
a day or so and even then you cannot be sure that there are no memory
errors.

You need a UEFI update for your mainboard, not the CPU.

Do it (installing the amd64-microcode package). Henrique knows about
this stuff better than most people. Also, there is comparatively little
risk involved since the microcode is loaded during boot. You can always
boot from another medium and remove the package if it doesn't work.
