    Wondering if someone can give me a definite answer here.

    This is the sticker on my motherboard: P8H67-M PRO/V-P8H67E/DP_MB

    I was wondering if an Intel G550 would work in that motherboard.

    HELP :lease:

    Well originally the motherboard I searched for on their website brought up a different motherboard which said it wasn't compatible, but I found that link manually which seems my model, so surely must support it? I want to be 100% sure before installing it that's all.

    Anybody else confirm it'll work 10000%??

    As far as I can tell the worst case scenario is that your BIOS is out of date and hence may not be able to identify the processor correctly.
    In this case the motherboard may run the processor at a reduced speed and not display it's name properly during start-up, until you update the BIOS to the latest revision.
