Intel LGA 1151 Motherboards


Intel LGA 1151 Motherboards supports Intel’s next generation of Skylake processors (Core i7/i5/i3/Celeron)

The Intel LGA1151 processor is aimed at gamers, office and home computers.

The CPU socket has connections for CPUs with 1151 pins (LGA 1151 CPUs), and other CPUs will not fit in LGA 1151 motherboards.

The LGA 1151 is the latest Intel socket design as of 2015, designed to accept the new Skylake class of 14-nanometer processors, the sixth-generation Core designs with product names in the 6000 series.

The chipsets

The design supports six different chipsets, from lowest power to highest: H110, B150, Q150, H170, Q170, and the most performance-oriented, Z170

Overclocking the LGA1151

All LGA 1151 chipsets except for the Z170 restrict overclocking to the GPU only – if you want to overclock your CPU or RAM, you’ll have to opt for the high-end chipset.

What is new compared to the LGA 1150?
  • More USB 3.0 connections
  • faster DDR4 RAM DIMMs (though some motherboards can also be equipped with older and cheaper DDR3 RAM)
  • for the low-end chipsets, more SATA 3.0 connections
  • VGA is not natively supported on LGA 1151, with Intel option for DVI, HDMI, or DisplayPort, but a VGA connection can be added by a manufacturer
  • SATA RAID support is included only on the H170, Q170, and Z170 chipsets
  • The Q170 adds support for Intel Active Management, Trusted Execution, VT-d and Vpro. (requires a sixth-generation Core processor)
Important information bout the 8th generation 1151 processors

Note that the 8th generation 1151 is not compatible with motherboards with the 100 or 200 chipset series (7th gen or earlier)

The 1151 8th gen processors require the Coffee Lake chipset (300 series)

8th Generation Intel Core Desktop Processors continue to use an LGA1151 socket. However, they require motherboards based on the new Intel® 300 Series Chipset, such as the Intel Z370 Chipset. These processors aren't backward compatible with motherboards based on Intel 200 Series Chipset and Intel 100 Series Chipset.

Similarly, 7th and 6th Generation Intel Core Desktop Processors aren't compatible with the new Intel 300 Series Chipset motherboards, such as the Intel Z370 Chipset.

Desktop 8th Generation Intel Core Processors only support DDR4 memory.
