What is the main difference between a Server chipset and a Desktop chipset?

In particular, I'm talking about Q370 vs C246.

 

When building a system based on Intel Core processor, is there an advantage or disadvantage in using a server chipset?

Hello AGutm2,

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities. 

 

The differences between both chipsets are in the following link:

In regards to the advantage or disadvantage, it depends on the purpose of your custom build.

Here is a spec comparison: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/compare-products.html/chipsets?productIds=147324,13.... As you can see, there are very few differences. What could be a factor is the capabilities of the motherboard itself. Server motherboards may sacrifice performance for stability.
