    S1200KPR and i3 (Ivy Bridge)




      short question about the S1200KPR Mini-ITX mainboard.


      When I rea the product specification guide and some other resources correctly, the S1200KPR mainboard supports Ivy Bridge Xeon E3 V2 and 3rd generation i3 processors.

      But when I compare this information with this site Intel� Server Board S1200KP — Tested processor list the 3rd generation i3 are not mentioned within the tested processors. When you look below the processor list, you can see the notes 1 and 2 which are directly making reference to the 3rd gen. i3.


      The release note document of the latest BIOS (ver. 0023) http://downloadmirror.intel.com/20826/eng/ReleaseNotes.txt says:

      Processors supported:

        Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor E3-1200 series

        Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor E3-1200V2 series on the product with the product code

      of DBS1200KPR and BBS1200KPR only

        Intel(R) Core(TM) processor i3-2100 series


      I would like to use the S1200KPR mainboard and a i3 3240 processor. That's why I would like to have a statement, if 3rd gen. i3 processors are supported or not.
