Part of the install instructions for MaximusHD is updating your hboot version from 2.15 to 2.16. So yes, 2.15 is correct for now. When you go to download the ROM there are 2 files, the ROM and the installer package. The installer package contains the firmware (this is what updates the hboot to 2.16) and the recovery. This is why the instructions are a little complicated. Basically you have to flash the rom first, then flash the firmware, then flash the recovery, then flash the ROM again. Just note, you can not mount storage in TWRP recovery for 2.16. Also, if you are a stock android fan then stay on 2.15 if you want to have a greater choice of ROM's. Currently I think the only AOSP based ROM that supports the 2.16 hboot is CM11.
