    Go to the manufacturers site of your motherboard.
    Search for BIOS updates and download it.
    Extract the zip file, open the folder and open the executable.
    Further I cannot say, outside of following any instructions you can find on the site of Gigabyte (I couldn't find any).
    Most important is to make sure your pc won't crash while flashing.

    I had my BIOS flashed as follow
    • Downloaded the BIOS and extracted the zip file
    • Opened the folder and opened the executable
    • Followed the instructions in the installation package
    • Restarted my laptop and kept it charged (in case with a problem with the battery)
    • Waited until my laptop was back in windows.

    Can't say for sure.
    Honestly, I wouldn't have come with the BIOS not compatible with the CPU.

    Watch it for a few days, if any bluescreen comes up, use the tool again and upload the zip file.

    Keep us posted

    And if someone is lookin at this topic: CHECK YOUR MOTHERBOARD PROVIDER WEBSITE AND GO TO CPU SUPPORT LIST AND SEARCH FOR YOUR CPU NAMELIKE THIS, AND THEN SEARCH OF WEB "HOW TO UPGRADE MY BIOS ON (motherboard name)" , BUT TAKE CARE THIS CAN BE A VERY DANGEROUS UPGRATE.
