i have an old dh61ww motherboard, i have an i5 3570 processor which is overheating a lot. So i was thinking of getting Xeon. i can get my hands on Xeon E3 1270 quickly which i see is compatible with my motherboard since its LGA1155. I have read some forums who say it for the other versions but i'm not sure about this version. But will this particular xeon processor support Non-ECC RAM or would i have to spend more and get the ECC RAM too?
 
If your cpu is overheating, then get a better cpu cooler.
Even if you change cpu , you'll still need a new cooler. Xeon has higher TDP than i5 3570.

As to about your question - motherboard specs do not list ECC ram as supported. So you're limited to non-ecc ram.

i tried everything with i5 3570, the processor is faulty, out of 4 cores 2 cores run a lot hotter. btw thanks for the answer. so can i run xeon with non-ecc ram?
 
What cpu cooler are you using?
Intel stock cooler usually is inadequate. Get a better cpu cooler. Cooler master 212 Hyper evo - for example.

Dh61ww motherboard supports non-ecc ram only. So that's only ram type, you can use on this board.
