    Yes and you will need to download and update the bios to F5B.
    Here is the list of cpu's the board will support with the Bios needed. Scroll down at this Gigabyte support page below.

    On the list cpu's Q 9550 E0 SLB8V isn't. There is only a Q 9550 C1 SLAWQ processor.

    I see the F5b beta BIOS supports the Q9650 E0, maybe they forgot to add Q9550 E0 or they will add it later.
