Just incase you have also an external link supporting your answer, can you please include it? If not, but you know what you are saying, please leave an answer to my question anyways!. I really really need to know this ;)

Yes, as long as the CPU is supported by the AM3+ MOBO. Go to the OEM site e.g. ASUS, Gigabyte, etc then look-up your MOBO it will list both the CPU's supported and the minimum BIOS version. ASUS's website, for me anyway, is down right now.
