Yes, it supports the processor, I believe you do need to update the BIOS.

According to the CPU support list you need BIOS version P1.60 or higher. Check your BIOS version. If it's below that then update to the newest.

Do you currently have a CPU that works on that board (which you can use to perform the update?)

Its possible, but I wouldn't bet on it. Sometimes you can get the MB manufacturer to send you the updated bios.
