Searching a mainboard to build a low idle-power server

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to replace my old home-server which has ways too high idle-power usage with a new system.

The point where I'm struggling to find any useful information is mainboard.


Could anyone recommend a good low power consumption mainboard which supports a recent CPU (not interested in low TDP or anything like that, it just doesn't really affect idle-power usage), has 4 SATA-Ports on board and at least one PCI-e slot with 4 lanes attached? (Support for ecc-memory would be great, but not really necessary).


(Anything higher than 20w idle is not low. Please don't post 80w builds, even if they replace 160w builds. It doesn't help.)
