Question Core i3-8100 and C246 Chipset compatibility

Nov 16, 2022

I have a "simple" question. Will the Core i3-8100 CPU be fully compatible with ASUS WS C246M PRO/SE motherboard ?

When I look at the Intel website, its says that the C246 Chipset only supports Xeon E Processors and the Core i3-8100 is only compatible with the x3xx Chipsets.

But on the ASUS website, it says that the ASUS WS C246M PRO/SE (with C246 Chipset) is compatible with Xeon E as well as with 8th and 9th gen. Core i CPUs.

So which statement is true ?

And a second question: Will the ECC work for this CPU and MB combined with some DDR4 ECC UDIMM memory ?

Hopefully someone know the correct answer, thanks
