Xeon W-2155 or Xeon Gold 5120?

Used primarily for compiling Linux kernel sources and huge FOSS application sources like ffmpeg, libreoffice and chromium.

And some general purpose computing as well.

Will be matched with 128GB of ECC memory, of which 64gb will be set as a ramdisk for much faster builds.

Which processor will be more worth the money?

Not looking at Threadripper 2 because of how difficult it is to find qualified ECC memory for the platform.
