Does FX-8350 work on GA-880GMA-USB3 (rev. 3.1)?

I'm thinking of upgrading my PC, but I would like to use my own motherboard if possible. I have a GA-880GMA-USB3 (rev. 3.1). My question is: Will the FX-8350 work on the mobo? The 880G chipset supports it afaik, and it's an AM3+ socket, so I don't see why it wouldn't work. However, the supported CPU list does not list FX-8350, which makes me worry. Is it really not supported or is the supported CPU list not exhaustive?
