Are there any differences in sound between these processors? I am using a 7th Gen i7 7700T with a TDP of 35 W but I downclock it at 25 watts which sounds really natural and organic.

 

I've tried to found a Xeon with low TDP but couldn't find anyone, they consume a lot. That's where I think if they really sound better than a low TDP i7 processor, appreciate any comments.

No, they don't consume a lot. You need the E3 series Xeon model with an L at the end - they're all up to 25W. 

And yes, Xeon sounds better than i7. I've found about this in 2012 and I've been using Xeons exclusively since. 

 

Best regards,

Marcin

That's great to know, thanks, Marcin. It's hard to find the E3 though they are discontinued, probably the E5 I can find one with lower TDP. Do you use ECC memory?

They're not discontinued. Please see the link that Nobudy pasted. 

 

Yes, I use ECC industrial RAM from Apacer
