    It does not matter which processor you have, CPUs do not use drivers (at least not in a way other devices do). They are recognized by the motherboard's BIOS and support for new CPU models is added through BIOS updates.
    Chipset drivers are not CPU drivers.

    Chipset drivers are drivers for motherboard north and south bridge.
    You should only install the latest chipset drivers issued by your motherboard vendor.

    That CPU is quite capable, unless you really do some really CPU intensive tasks you will not have to upgrade for a looooooooong time.

    Correct.
    Perhaps it would help if you explained why you are trying to update the chipset drivers in the first place.
