Can't decide between Motherboard

Recommended Posts

Good evening,

I'm currently in the process of upgrading my unRaid rig, as it currently runs on scrapped parts (i5-4650k + some cheap motherboard).

Got a new Rm550x 2021 and I wanna grab an used i3-8100.


I do need help regarding the motherboard.

Currently I can get a new ASRock C246 WSI for ~95€.

The C246N-WU2 seems to be the king, although I can't find new (and used (!)) ones below 160€, same with the WU4.

How bad is the power consumption between those options? Electricity in Germany is sadly expensive. Is the upgrade worth it in the long term?


Best regards
