Gigabyte motherboard & Wolfdale 2.5Ghz compatibility

The Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128357 - and Intel's Pentium E5200 Wolfdale 2.5GHz CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116072 - should work fine together right? I'm pretty sure they should but the motherboards CPU type description doesn't mention 'Dual-Core'. Thanks for your time.

Also, does the thermal paste normally come with new CPUs since it includes its own heatsink?

  1. The short answer is yes, it will work. Gigabyte's website has a CPU compatibility list. The E5200 shows as supported from the initial F3 BIOS:
