.. bottlenecks would be and where it could be improved? Thanks!
I would suggest a couple of dual e5 family processors if it's within your budget.

Taking in your comments , rather than jumping up a few processors , would I be better downgrading in other areas instead to get a balanced server? What model of E5 server would you recommend I go up to if I did?
Would probably recommend something like the Xeon E5- 1650 especially as it is reasonably cheap for the quality of the processor. But an of the E-5's will work well, what are you going to be running on the server?
Is it going to be ram hungry, cpu hungry or maybe not take up much and the server might be a bit overkill. You could still have he E-3 in it though, still pretty well balanced. Ofcource though the better cpu, well the better, if there is no budget maybe think about a Intel Xeon E5-2687W @ 3.10GHz or even dual CPU's for a server.
Hope this helps and I didn't repeat anything already said
More cores will serve you better so yes can try some low speed dual CPU or single six-core CPU. As I have told you before 15K is not going to make a big difference with 4 drives only. Modern drives SATA2/3 are fast enough.
