    Unfortunately there is no way to update the BIOS if you don't already have a compatible CPU; you need a compatible CPU to update the BIOS first. Why not try going down to your local computer store and see if they allow you to borrow a CPU to update the BIOS, or why not purchase a cheap CPU to update the BIOS with? Such as:

    CPU: Intel Celeron G1820 2.7GHz Dual-Core Processor ($45.99 @ Newegg)
    Total: $45.99
    Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

    You could then sell the CPU after you upgrade the BIOS, or see if the retailer allows returns/refunds.

    All the best. :)
  2. Apparently MSI doesn't have a Flash update for that mobo for the Intel 4790K CPU

  3. Send the mobo back, pay the restock fee and get one that is compatible.
