I am going to build my first home server, and am looking for the most power efficient CPU. I haven't found direct comparisons between cheapest (presumably also better power efficient) Intel and AMD CPUs.
Any info will be appreciated.

This might help you compare efficiency

Intel : http://www.techarp.com/showarticle.aspx?artno=354&pgno=...

AMD: http://www.techarp.com/showarticle.aspx?artno=354&pgno=...

As a rule of thumb, the lower the numbers for TDP, Voltage, Maximum current and Fabrication process - in (nm) - the more efficient a processor is

Thanks for the advices. I see that also E3200 is mentioned as very efficient CPU.

I am still trying to find exact figures - LE-140 vs Intel counterpart. Which one is better.

the LE-140 is the worst modern amd cpu, therefore pick the worst intel cpu more or less. it is a much better buy to buy one of their better cpus, while retaining low power consumption.
