Hi,

I am looking for the most compatible board with ECC support.

Minimum of 3 PCI-E full-size slots, plus at least one PCI-E x1 slot.

Thanks for your help!

Intel locked out ECC support on their Core i CPUs, so you will need a board that supports Xeon CPUs and ECC RAM in ECC mode, which restricts you to server/workstation boards. These boards have C236 PCH in the latest Skylake version, not the Z/H/Q PCH of a mainstream board.
Some of the new mainstream boards do support ECC RDIMMS, but only in non-ECC mode, so read the specs carefully.
