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

If you want something that is low power consumption and will run 24/7 doing intensive calculations, then you might want to look at an industrial plug computer or embedded controller. It's not a x64 bit install, but I believe something like this can run a fill linux install.
