I am looking forward to build a fanless mini-ITX computer (with a dedicated computer case). The criteria that are important to me for this platform are the following:
- Reliability: no system crash, no instability
- Durability: long-term system stability (think of a home server running 24/7 for years)
- Performance: as high as possible given the energy constraints and that 1. and 2. are met
The rest of the platform will be:
- CPU: Intel Core i9-10900T: 10 cores, 1.90 GhZ (4.60 GhZ Turbo), 35W TDP (as this processor can go up to 120W TDP when no limitation are put in place, I will put a TDP limit in the bios given that the platform will be fanless)
- Motherboard: Gigabyte Mini-ITX Z490I AORUS ULTRA (rev. 1.x), manual here, official memory support list here
Given my criteria and my CPU and motherboard, I would like to know what would be the best memory that would fit my needs given the following constraints:
- Type: DDR4 DIMM (non-ECC)
- Amount: 64 GB (2x32 GB kit)
- LED: for equivalent kits performance-wise, without LEDs will be prefered
- Voltage: for equivalent kits performance-wise, the lower the better
- Brand: preferably one known for reliability, stability, and durability
- Max price: irrelevant in the limit of about 500 euros/dollars for the kit
Since I am looking for something extremely stable, I am unlikely to tweak a million options in the BIOS. Overclocking will not be a thing, since it will be for something that will be used as a fanless home server most of the time. But even with these constraints, I am looking for the best possible performance.
Any advice? I am looking for 2 or 3 good options that would fit my needs.
