How to Know which BIOS Version to Install?

I have an HP Z420 Workstation with an Intel XEON E5-1603 CPU.

I want to install an Intel XEON E5-2670 CPU.

 

Since the PC is used (and has no manual), how do I know which BIOS version should be installed before I upgrade the CPU?

The best way to do it would be to use CPU-Z to find which exact board and bios it has, then find the model on HP-s website and find the bios.

Our radiologists use a few of those, we upgraded those but that was so longa ago I don't remember anything about the bios versions those use.
