At the moment planning a new control box for a small site.
Configuration will be straight forward,
3x 1Gbps LAN interfaces, 2x 100mbit WAN interfaces going loadbalance, 1 Kerio VPN site2site for management purposes.
Maybe with Antivirus, perhaps in future.

As I want to build this on diy hardware, I'm going to use a ITX platform with a quad intelike server NIC.

However I'm wondering what CPU would perform better.
-dual core 2ghz (2.5 turbo) Celeron
-quad core 1.5ghz (2.2 turbo) Celeron

Does Kerio control effective multithread or would I better go for higher clock speeds on lower core count?

Thank you for your suggestions!

What kind of throughput are you trying to achieve?

Personally I would chose the quad as the turbo is so close and the multiple threads benefit you more than the single slightly faster dual core. If you are going to go ITX, I would recommend avoiding celeron though. If you are looking for anything close to 1Gb across routed networks, you are going to need 3.5+ GHz due to the way snort is implemented (can only use a single core).
