    Sorry to say but you are not going to find a motherboard that supports both CPU's. They have two different sockets. i3-2120--->LGA1155 socket :: i5-4570---->LGA1150 socket

    the lga 1155 socket fits the gen 2 and gen 3 cpus... intel i3, i5, i7-2xxx or intel i3, i5, i7-3xxx

    the lga 1150 socket fits the gen 4 cpu .... intel i3, i5, i7-4xxx
