I am setting up a new server (PowerEdge T130) for a small business, running Windows Server Essentials 2016. It will be used as a file server, AV, domain controller and has some SQL databases. I know usage ideally shouldn't be mixed, but it will have very little usage - only a few users occasionally accessing it.
I want to optimise it for speed as much as possible and am going through the BIOS settings. One that has caught my eye is X2Apic Mode.
