    I am looking for low power and not as concerned about speed as these will mostly just be for playing around with so will probably be going with E5-2418L, 50W, 4C/8T. They are cheap to pick up right now but not sure if they are best bang for the buck or not

    If you are not in a hurry, there will be dual cpu board pop up on ebay for around $100 - $175.
    Since a single cpu board have 3 ram slots ( 3 x 8 gb ram ), you may want to have a dual cpu board ( 6 x 8 gb ram ) in case you need more than 24gb memory.

    Actually these intel single CPU boards seem to have 6 dimm slots on them which is what drew them to me in the first place when i saw them

    You are right, I just look at the pictures, and it shown 6 slots.

    Just looking at my notes.
    Intel S2400SC2 Server Motherboard
    Aug 2 2014 Paid $175 with free shipping at ebay

    Different subject,
    I noticed the Cinebench , single cpu vs dual cpu, dual cpu is almost 3 times faster than a single cpu.
    I needed to rerun the CineBench test.

    One more item i noticed while looking through the documentation for these boards, while intel includes the sas ports on the board you need to have a key installed on the board to enable them.

    There are a number of different keys available for sas or sata, as well as raid/non raid and 4 or 8 ports

    I do not actively use the sas ports, so I have to find my old notes regarding different keys.

    Here is the link for the heatsink that I purchased
    Intel E97381-001 LGA1366 Fan / Heatsink - Intel Socket-1366 Cooler

    At the time, I purchased the heatsink, if buy 9 pieces, the price drop to $8.50 each
    Intel E97381-001 LGA1366 Fan / Heatsink $8.50 x 9 $76.50
    Order Date: 06/18/2013
    Order Number:

    I think they fixed the pricing "bug" now, wish I had brought more heatsink at the time.

    Thanks for the link to the heatsink

    as for the different keys the part numbers for them along with which is which can be found on page 13/14 of the following document. As well on page 14 there is a listing of which IPMI modules are compatible with these boards

    To give an idea for key pricing the seller has accepted the following offers

    Have you make a offer the ebay seller of E5-2418L?
    I am thinking a low ball offer for couple of E5-2418L.

    BTW, the Intel heatsink is very quiet, I like it a lot.
