    So, currently My CPU is well... Geting raped to put it nicely.
    So i was thinking lets get something better. I have a E3-1230V2 in my main server and a E3-1245v2 in my backup/factions.

    So looking over what some other servers use i seen the e5-1620 was common for bigger servers, but then looking into it. the e3-1270 looks about the same, maybe i am over looking something big..​

    I don't see how the E5 is that much better other then the .10 ghz

    So im guessing its not much better?
     
  3. I don't think E5 is common for big servers.

    1270v2 or if you can afford it grab a 1290v2.
    I am currently running a 1270v2, and it's pretty nice for the little bit of players i have.

    I was considering the 70v2 the 90 seams way to high priced. but is there really no better CPU? (with out paying 200k)

    I don't think so...

    An E3 1230v2 is fine and should NOT be causing problems. However I would recommend an E3 1290v2

    Don't use anything from the E5 or E7 line unless its clock speed is >3ghz
