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.

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
