Mini ITX server

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am currently using a early 2000's mid tower for a TS server. Its ugly and takes up too much room. I want to build an EXTREMELY cheap build to use as a server in this case https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ID2FBU6/ref=psdc_572238_t1_B0064LWISQ . It will not be used for anything but to stay running 24/7 for a TS server and possibly a Minecraft server for the kid.

Input?

Here's a quick list. Only 80w TDP.

You can probably go a bit cheaper with used motherboard/cpu, like an old LGA775 mini itx / dual core, but the power use will be a lot higher so that cancels out after a couple years.


Edit: If you ever go to Chicago they have 2 Micro centers and they provide nice mobo/cpu bundles, something like this:

All three Skylake builds are upgradable. The AM1 rig cannot improve performance.

Thanks for the replies. I was just able to get on and look at them. I may go with the lower priced skylake build so I can upgrade in the future if need be. Thanks.

I went with the B150M Asrock mobo because the H110M had worse reviews, but up to you there. I suggested the Skylake instead of an AMD AM1 chip because of benchmarks & you said you wanted to do Minecraft, if you load a ton of mods on a Minecraft server it could matter.
