You need a CPU installed in order to update the BIOS of your motherboard. If your motherboard requires a BIOS update in order to support your new CPU, then it WON'T be able to update the BIOS with the new CPU installed. You must update the BIOS with the already supported CPU, then you can install the new CPU.
The system may not boot with an Ivy Bridge processor without the BIOS update, so I would definitely recommend updating it with your current CPU installed.
