It certainly can support the CPU - but may well need a BIOS update to do so.

There are variants of some boards (specifically from MSI) who are guaranteed to have the updated BIOS installed, and are denoted as NameOfMotherboard-MAX. Otherwise, you'd have to try and confirm with the retailer on a case by case basis.

Would be a safer bet if you cannot confirm with the retailer.

Depending on the date of manufacture, the first board might have the updated BIOS and be ready to go,.... but it's a bit of a gamble.

For similar money (even up to say $10 more), I'd opt for one of the MAX boards to be safe.
