Can different generations all use the same motherboard?

Stuff like this is the exact reason I do not build my own system. In fairness, trying to decide on the right RAM brand and model was not slam dunk simple (for me).

You're trying to make it more difficult than it really is.  It's pretty easy to pick a cpu, and then see - will this MB support this cpu?  Generations don't matter.  Again, you're feigning ignorance to make your argument.

to me, it's Sandy Bridge, IvyBridge, Haswell.   Some might insert SandyBridge-E in between, but that was a substantially different design, both in cpu pinout form and in the memory architecture.
