Is there any motherboard that supports intel 4th gen cpu's (Ill be using i7 4790) and has driver support for xp (most preferably xp x64). Unnoficial drivers are fine.

I have installed XP on these motherboards using the i7-4790K CPU:

GIGABYTE GA-Z97M-DS3H
GIGABYTE GA-Z97-HD3

ASRock Z97 Pro3
ASRock Z97 Anniversary  (XP x64)

All drivers are available for the Gigabyte boards.

The ASRock boards come with the i218v LAN, so I installed Realtek LAN cards instead.  Subsequently, @bearwindows shared an x86 driver for the i218V LAN (which I have not tested), and also for XP x64 (which did not work for me):

So you're in business, if you can find one of those boards.

None of those motherboards have windows xp drivers on their websites?

Right, use audio and LAN drivers from the Realtek website, video driver for whatever card is used, and Intel (or blackwingcat) chipset INFs.  Here's a Gigabyte board:
