Can someone who knows about these kinds of things explain why a Intel Core i7-6700 would be a better server processor than something like a Intel Xeon E3-1271V3?

@carbontwelve I don't think it would be better. Since most servers spend 99% of their time twiddling their thumbs, just get whatever's cheaper and has a lower power draw. :P

@mdm mine averages about 75% usage during busy period but over 24hrs around 8% utilisation. So you're probably right.

@carbontwelve Sadly enough. :( I run six VMs on an Intel NUC that's maybe 4inches across. And even it's doing nothing most of the time.
