Updating bios without cpu
Now i connect the main PSU connector and the additional CPU power connector the motherboard. Connected the keyboard (USB2.0) and monitor (DSUB).I also connected a fan to see if the board was getting power.Can't remember the older ones but my recent "in advance CPU support flash" was with a AMD 770 chipset Gigabyte board.As I can remember we bought a very recent Phenom CPU for this board which was only listed as supported with the latest BIOS and the board didn't come with that BIOS version.This guide will help you flash (update) your BIOS by taking the right precautions and walking you through each step.Not all computers will have the same BIOS manufacturer, let alone the same exact process, but they all share similar steps and precautions.
You can't get into the BIOS without a CPU (at least not the homeuser). If your 4-core cpu is socket compatible and (second) being listed on the manufacturer's site as a supported CPU than you can power on the system with that CPU and flash the BIOS.
You should be lucky enough to have gotten one with at least that BIOS revision number Prior to my build, I was nervouse about the bios being upto date enough that i'd have no problem installing my FX 8150.
I could swear I saw a video of someone doing exactly what you have asked, but no I cannot find it. My board came with 1102 so i was in the clear and didnt have to worry too much about it.

If the CPU is "similar enough", so it can be ran as a supported device (for example if a 6-core unit could run as if it was a 4-core unit) then you can likely do a normal install of the Operating System, and use the typical user application software or process to upgrade the BIOS to recognize and utilize the CPU fully.
IF the CPU is an entirely new series, (say the first 25nm chips or a new codename) then you may have to either upgrade the motherboard BIOS using an older but supported CPU, or send the motherboard back to the dealer / manufacturer to be upgraded, or only perhaps for the hardcore readers) from media (floppy, cdrom, I don't know about USB).Suppose that a motherboard doesn't ship with a BIOS that supports your CPU.
