CPU Upgrade on dc7700 with 0a58h motherboard

Hi,
i would like to know if on this motherboard it could be installed an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 / 2.66 GHz processor.
The actual bios version is the 786E1 v01.09.
I know the processor is not on the list of supported CPUs, but i would like to know if, with the lastest bios revision, it was added some kind of support for it.

Thank you.
