I think you might have the model slightly wrong.  You can go here to find all mobo's for US, but yours is not there.
What kind of socket:

As pjam says use the Gigabyte site
The most recent update is to F13 - all updates are cumulative.

Ive downloaded the file.
Extracted it to a folder.

Ive  
FLASHSPI
and
autoexec

which came from
motherboard_bios_ga-ex58-ud5_f13

when I click on any of them nothing happens.
Ive flashed 100s of Bios before.  

Cant figure this out.

No, sorry scratch that, this board supports Q-Flash
Put the files on a FAT32 USB stick and follow the instructions on p 80 of the manual
