Z170 INTEL & XEON E3 SERIES

Post by fraz »

Hi,

Do the Intel Z170 chipsets work with the Xeon E3 family processors? - On Z97 1150 they do (E3 V3 V4 do)__but on Z170 they may not be ????

I've checked out 1 x MSI board and 1 x Asus board in the Z170 category and neither show the E3 V5 (Skylake=6700 K) nor the E3 V6 (Kaby Lake = 7700 K) - So are these a no go on Z170?

Daw man is sure to know.

Not long back there was an E3 1245 V3 (Haswell)_not far off 4790 K performance for £60 which is a lot cheaper than the full price for the 4790 K a few years back - That's the reason for asking - - :) - Thanks
