Hi! i am currently waiting for the unreleased series of Xeon Entry and wanting to build a gameserver friendly box with high singlethread perf.

is there any recommendations on motherboards? i was thinking maybe ASUS WS series. but there is also supermicro which just got a great rep overall. the new Asus WS IPMI SW looks very nice (STH review). is the supermicro series that updated by now? i just want to avoid Java at all cost when it comes to Webui

Yes i know nothing is released yet. but planning ahead mainly! :)

These are going to be Socket 1151 - so that motherboard you've linked to will not run these new chips.

These may well require new motherboards and not be able to be supported on current v5/v6 capable 1151 boards (just like the CFL core series CPUs)

You'll have to wait and see I think!

Anyone know when these processors will be readily available to purchase for consumers?

The E3 CPU and MB are available in Poland at least.
About your server request - the MB you have linked is for socket 3647. High single thread performance is quite expensive for this platform - I wouldn't recommend.
If you want the best possible single thread performance you should go with consumer HW i7 8700.
If you are hung on the hardware server hardware X11SCZ-F seems like a good option.

So after a few months motherboards have been announced and new CPUs are on the market.
I moved back from using a EATX case to a MATX one

this was a obvious choice then. IPMI features and all.
X11SCZ-F | Motherboards | Products - Super Micro Computer, Inc.

this is not a new announced one. but very good for its price. and i saw the review STH did on 8300 one. was a very easy decision. I also decided i wanted to try the i3 Series as they have improved quite a ton the latest generations. and it got ECC support which is great.
Intel® Core™ i3-8350K Processor (8M Cache, 4.00 GHz) Product Specifications is the one i went with.

Case:
Carbide Series™ Air 240 High Airflow MicroATX and Mini-ITX PC Case

This CPU cooler (its kinda tall but some said 130mm of available space)
NH-U9S

PSU (550 should be plenty for 3 ironwolf in raid 5 and a few SSD's)
TX-M Series™ TX550M — 550 Watt 80 Plus® Gold Certified PSU
