Default Intel core2quad Q6600 with Asus P5B-E Plus?

Hello there!
I would like to make a pcu upgrade. Now i have Core2duo E6300, (1.86ghz, 1066 mhz FSB, 65nm) but it would be nice to upgrade it to Core2Quad Q6600. (2.4ghz, 1066mhz FSB 65nm) The question is, is my motherboard compatible for this cpu? (Asus P5B-E plus, P965 chipset)
Tank you!

Yep. Intel has one socket. But AMD has multiple sockets which, in my opinion, make for a wwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay ****** better CPU

here is a better motherboard/cpu combo:

Yes that board will support a Q6600 though you will need bios version 0611 or later.
