Also why do you keep deleting my posts, you aren't the champion of the Canadian Open and you should add NAYCC to your recent tournaments.

If the biggest AMD CPU is "too big and heavy" your criteria are more than just the best Stockfish performance.  A quick bit of googling suggests that Stockfish should be run with a thread count equal to the processor count of the machine (logical or physical? no idea), so lots of processors appears to be the go, but memory caching and memory access efficiency must have an effect provided that Stockfish can actually make use of a high thread count.  I wonder at what point thread coordination costs become significant.
