Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
NOTE: Only Socket AM3 processors are supported with this motherboard.

AMD Phenom II X6 10xxT Six-Core (Thuban core)
AMD Phenom II X4 9xx/9xxe/8xx Quad-Core (Deneb core)
AMD Phenom II X3 7xx/7xxe Triple-Core (Heka core)
AMD Phenom II X2 5xx (Callisto core)
AMD Athlon X4 6xx/6xxe (Propus)
AMD Athlon X3 4xx/4xxe (Rana)
AMD Athlon X2 2xx/2xxe (Regor)
AMD Sempron Single Core 1xx (Sargas core)

So yes if it supports Thuban it supports Zosma

The T is because its a Thuban (like the 6 cores) but with 2 cores disabled.

Really to take maximum advantage of that CPU though a new better motherboard would be good. Even ones as cheap as £40 will support core unlocking and you may if lucky turn that 960T in to a six core 1605T
