I would like to build a low consumption PC that will be on 24/7. It will not be used for intensive calculations of course.

I've already tried some prefabricated solutions like this one but I found it to be not so elastic (e.g. i've had driver issues under Linux).

So i was thinking about building it by myself starting from spare components. I was thinking about a MoBo, a CPU (with integrated graphics), a PSU and RAM. Is it possibile to build something that will have and avarage consume of 30Watt ? Can someone suggest me some of those piecies?

I've found plenty of build for any kind of purpose (mostly gaming) but really a few for low consumption. And I would like to stay on a x64 architecture (so please don't suggest Raspberry, I've already walked that path ).

  • Average 30W would be very low (OC raspberry pi level), but maybe with an undervolted AMD Athlon 3000G, it would be possible
