    Is it true that socket 1151 Xeons will not run on consumer chipset motherboards?

    I've read stuff saying so, but I haven't seen anything definitive.

    Can anyone confirm?

    From what I recall no, they definitely don't work. They (Intel) changed the chipset after Haswell because they didn't want people buying them for gaming PCs. Shame, because they were a good chunk cheaper usually due to no iGPU.

    Yes it is. You need a C-series chipset [C236 for the 1151 ones iirc].

    EDIT: Take for instance ASUS' Z270-WS, note how it does not [officially] support any of the xeon offerings... if any of their Z270 boards took a S1151 Xeon, you'd expect the Workstation-aimed board to be it.

    Thought so - oh well, another bright idea scuppered.

    Glad I checked first though - cheers chaps.

    Yeah they totally changed it after DC. Bar Stewards.

    FWIW, you *can* iirc, put a regular i3/i5/i7 in the a C236 board [or you can with ASUS'].

    So tldr -

    Core i-whatever + Server board [C236] = fine
    Xeon + Consumer board [based on Z/H270] = sad panda

    Not sure why you'd want to... but you can...

    Yes, s1150 (Haswell/Broadwell) is the last Core ix and Xeon on consumer boards combo.
    Interestingly, I see that they have cobbled a Coffelake i3 onto a Z270 board - look complicated. 6 Step hack...don't know how some of these people have the time to think up and test this shizzle

    Luckily Haswell/Broadwell Xeons are cheap as chips on fleabay.
