Review of Linux Compatibility

The ASRock Z87 Pro3 is an ATX Mainboard with LGA1150 socket. It was successfully tested under Ubuntu 14.10 with Linux kernel version 3.16.0 and is fully compatible.

Graphics

The CPU-based graphics controller is fully supported by the i915 kernel module:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0412] (rev 06)
	Subsystem: ASRock Incorporation Device [1849:0412]
	Kernel driver in use: i915

Ethernet

The onboard Gigabit ethernet is supported by the e1000e kernel driver:

00:19.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I217-V [8086:153b] (rev 05)
	Subsystem: ASRock Incorporation Device [1849:153b]
	Kernel driver in use: e1000e

This driver loads automatically:

e1000e: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Driver - 2.3.2-k
e1000e: Copyright(c) 1999 - 2014 Intel Corporation.
e1000e 0000:00:19.0: Interrupt Throttling Rate (ints/sec) set to dynamic conservative mode

Sound

Also the Sound chipset is fully supported under Linux:

00:1b.0 Audio device [0403]: Intel Corporation 8 Series/C220 Series Chipset High Definition Audio Controller [8086:8c20] (rev 05)
	Subsystem: ASRock Incorporation Device [1849:d892]
	Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel

Linux automatically loads the snd_hda_intel sound driver to initialize the sound:

snd_hda_intel 0000:00:1b.0: irq 45 for MSI/MSI-X
sound hdaudioC0D0: autoconfig: line_outs=4 (0x14/0x15/0x16/0x17/0x0) type:line
