Can I run a 3rd gen on my current BIOS?

So I had an i3-2120 for a long time with this motherboard:
MSI H61M-P31 (G3)
and I finally ordered an i7-3770, I know it is compatible but...
My current BIOS is v2.4
Can I install the i7-3770 without updating my BIOS? because its sometimes a risk to update the BIOS with no point.

Thanks to everyone who helps!
