My brother bought a refurb dell workstation with a W-1270 and a Radeon Pro W5700. The CPU has been hovering around 90 to 100c when he's in game. He's using it for some business photoshop stuff and light gaming. I'm thinking he may want to move it to another case and mobo so he can fit a larger CPU cooler. The stock dell case only fits a low profile (1"), proprietary blower fan style HS.

Will any LGA1200 / Z570 mobo be compatible with the W-1270? He's not concerned about ECC. More expansion will be nice over the Dell mobo too.

Thanks

W480 chipset is required for Xeon support. Fortunately motherboards are readily available with that (Asus, ASRock, etc make them)
