Good to see that he adequately responded and helped you the best way he could.

Do you remember where you read about "1.8v vcore" related to E5 v3 Xeons?
Actually, it's not Vcore. This is Vccin/Vrin for FIVR (fully integrated voltage regulators) inside CPU. Values around 1.80 volts are OK.

Good memories from the past! My first dual cpu rig is based on the asus dual socket board. Very similar to this but it has 8 ram slots per cpu. At that time I was rocking dual 2696v4 and thought I was the king haha

Does anyone in Europe need original i/o shield?

I can import it:

Can anybody confirm, that M.2 2242 is connected to chipset with one PCIe Gen2 lane?

Z10PA-D8 | Servers & Workstations | ASUS USA

1 x M.2 Connector , NGFF Type : 2242, Capacity : 16~128GB

under 'Notes':

*1: SATA 6Gb/s & PCI-E Gen2 x1 link

And from: https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/...8/Manual/E13692_Z10PA-D8_Series_UM_V3_WEB.pdf

"The SSATA4 [Light Gray] will be automatically turned off if the M.2 connector (NGFF) is occupied.

There are 3 Apacher M.2 (NGFF) devices listed at Z10PA-D8 Series AVL

without checking though, i would imagine there exists Mini-SAS adapters that fit right into a PCIE3 x4 slot, and if not, just buy a standard PCIE3 x4 to M.2 adapter, then slap that M2 to Mini-SAS onto that :)
