In a word, NO. Check the cpu support page and you will see it does not support the 9950 either the 125W or the 140W ver. This is common on boards that do not use top of the line parts like VRs, etc. Here is the support page.

If you want a foxconn board that supports the 9950, then go with the A79A-S. I have this board and it does a fine job with the 9950BE.

Darnit, why couldnt I find that table?? Thanks for that this is super crjdriver! I was also looking at the A79A-S, but it has 4 PCIe slots, which I do not see a need for. I have been trying to find that same board with only 2, do you know what model this would be?

And thank you Triple6 for the other board options, I might end up with one of those.

The foxconn website is difficult at best to find anything AND they have different things listed on the US and global sites.

The A79A-S is a fine board however it is overpriced. I got mine when there was a pricing error on zipzoomfly. They listed it at $99 so I bought one. Within a few min it went back up to $169. At $99 it is worth it; at $169 it is overpriced. I think this board has only 3 pci slots however it has been a while since I built it.

I am sure the gigabyte boards would work fine also.
