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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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
