    I am using a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H using the f10 mod bios found in the gigabyte forum and it works with all cores at 3.8. I am pretty sure if you look at the Gigabyte section and the mod bios, any of those should do the trick. There may be other manufacturers as well, but, I only use Gigabyte due to using hackintosh, so that's the only brand I've looked in to

    Well, you can check out the specifics in the gigabyte forum here at TT. There is a whole sticky just for mod bios. I grabbed it specifically for the same reason as your post; to have all 4 cores turbo to 3.8, which the mod takes care of nicely.

    Gday
    Ive got an Asrock Z87E-ITX + Kingston HyperX DDR3 RAM (Not L and NOT ECC) + Intel E3-1230v3 CPU

    Did you try googling Motherboard Xeon E3-1231v3
    Did you check out Asrocks and Asus mobo spec pages ?
    Quick 15 second google shows support for H97 or Z97 mobos https://www.google.com.au/search?q=a...Xeon+E3-1231v3


    BTW What country are you from ? USA , CA , UK , AU , NZ , JP , PH , etc ???
    Do you have a link to your current pc store ?
    eg Amazon (USA/CA/UK/DE) , Umart (AU) , etc

    The problem is z97 mobos almost disapeared one week after Skylake was released in Australia
    We had the Asrock Z97 mobo for AUD$135 and fancy ones for AUD$170-AUD$205

    then the i5 goes up slightly
    DDR4 was bloody expensive
    then Z170 mobos were AUD$185 the cheapest but most were AUD$205-AUD$235

    Its only till 1-2 weeks ago that the Z170 asrock and Asus motherboards have FINALLY
    been reduced DOWN to AUD$135-AUD$145

    Some of the H110/h170 mobo's did support DDR3L RAM (Low voltage) but not normal DDR3 ram


    I bought :-
    Intel E3-1230v3 for AUD$285 when the i5k was AUD$255 and i7 was AUD$350 and i7k was AUD$385
    the E3-1230v3 was the same speed as the i7-4770 at the time (AUD$350)

    The Asrock Z87E-ITX was AUD$185
    Ive used the same Kingston HyperX stick from Socket 478 to 775 then to my Xeon right , its over 6 years old
    and still works . Ive sold systems over the last 10+ years and always recommend Kingston HyperX ram
    this ram is ROCK SOLID and never seems to stuff up

    This is my custom built PC
