Pinned topic x3650m4 Sql Server

‏2013-01-18T15:12:45Z |
I'm spec'ing out a x3650m4 to be used as a sql 2012 server. With SQL 2012 the software license is based on cores and our developers only want to pay for 4 cores. My question is it better to have 2 sockets with 2 cores each, or 1 socket with 4 cores?

Also, since the Intel 5 series processors have 4 memory paths is it better to have 4 dimms of a smaller size or 2 dimms of a larger size both to equal 32GB?
