It's more expensive for barely any extra features and there is no boards that have the looks I wanted for my build

well you need to have an 8 th gen cpu for a bios flash. it isn't worth the risk to buy an expensive CPU and that Z370 board doesn't come with latest bios

Answering your question, you will probably not be able to update it without an 8th gen cpu.  Find a friend or buy a 8300 then return it after you update it.  It's more convenient to just buy the z390 board and intel knows that, but if you want to save the money and time it would take to sell your current board, then you'll have to get a 8th gen chip somehow.

You can get these for very cheap. You don't need an i3.
