PC build using passive ASRock J4105-ITX motherboard, Samsung EVO SSD, Corsair SODIMM RAM, and Morex 3320 case and power supply.
The second and final part of this project, covering OS and apps installation, performance tests, and power consumption, is now posted here: it-plans.info/white/video/mouNoYxmep-EyJw

The ASRock J4105-ITX motherboard used in this build can be found on Amazon.com here: amzn.to/3mC7Xei and on Amazon.co.uk here: www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B079GHRQD9/ref=nosim?tag=explainin-21 (affiliate links). Do note that that prices for Mini-ITX boards with an integrated processor vary widely, and that you are strongly advised to shop around.
The Samsung EVO 860 250GB SSD used in this build can be found on Amazon.com here: amzn.to/3mEercH and on Amazon.co.uk here www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B078WQJXNF/ref=nosim?tag=explainin-21 (affiliate links).
The Crucial 2x4GB SODIMM kit used in this build can be found on Amazon.com here: amzn.to/2ZVMPpv and on Amazon.co.uk here www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B019FRD3SE/ref=nosim?tag=explainin-21 (affiliate links)
The Morex 3320 Fanless Mini-ITX case used in the build can be found on Mini-ITX.com here: www.mini-itx.com/~TC-3320 If you shop around, you may well find a much cheaper case, but do make sure it has a 60W or greater PSU to power the above board, as well as a SATA power connector to supply the SSD (in some other cases, only a molex drive power connector is included, and a molex to SATA power adapter would be needed to connect this to the SSD).
You can look see the full motherboard specifications on the ASRock website here: www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/J4105-ITX/#Specification
