so with the initial hubbub of 1.5V DDR3 being bad for Skylake's IMC and mobo makers still making "DDR3 motherboards," those of you that put 1.5V+ DDR3 paired with your Skylake, is everything working OK?

with the price of DDR4 these days, i REALLY don't want to spring for 16GB and am OK with the decrease (sometimes) in performance.

are any of you with 1.5V DDR3+Skylake running your computer 24/7? (cuz that's probably what i'll be doing between distributed computing, gaming, and x264/x265 encoding)

any motherboards that DIDN'T work out due to common issues with the board (opposed to the small percentage of ALL motherboards that need RMAing)?
