What are ballpark prices for compatible processors?

I’ll work on adding them to the CPU sheet tomorrow.

Here’s a good example: E3-1270 V3 for $94. 9919 passmark, 4C/9T up to 3.9GHz turbo.

V2 version has the same specs, lower TDP, and benches at 9469 passmark. Typical price for V2 is $75-ish. (this is for NK 4.0, socket 1155 NOT this motherboard)

V4’s exist… kind of. Going to be really hard to find though.

Another interesting find is the E3-1220L V3. It has only a 13W TDP and extremely low power consumption.

I want to build a SFF Unraid server in a Fractal Design 804. Price isn’t that big of an issue, but I want to get the most out of what I spend.

I’ll be adding Plex, Reverse Proxy, Deluge/NZBget, PiHole, a few other Community Applications, and a test environment VM. Hardware will be:
8 Seagate SAS drives
2 WD SATA SSDs (cache and metadata)
Quadro P2200 (transcoding for up to 8-10 people)
10 Gb NIC card
32 GB RAM (Wanted 64 for overkill but see that’s not compatible with this board)
Noctua NH-L12S CPU Cooler

Will this work well with this CPU/Motherboard combo?
