PC Build for Server - Advice Please!

Recommended Posts

Hi, Here’s a quick overview of what we are trying to achieve…

I am looking for a PC build which will act as our server for a new bidding system to be used at fundraising events.

We run auctions at fundraising events which are held at hotels. We are looking to display up to 100 tablets for guests to view our website (pre-loaded on the devices by us).
The website contains live bidding information, which continually changes and should be updated across all devices in real-time.

We are looking for a PC built that will be the server that runs this system.

It needs to be reliable since it is powering a server that will have 100 devices connected at once. Real-time speed is important.

Couple of guys have given me slight guidance on a pc build - here it is:


• CPU: Intel BX80684I78700 8th Gen Core i7-8700 Processor 325

• CASE: Cooler Master Elite 110 Computer Case 'Mini-ITX, USB 3.0, Mesh Side Panel' RC-110-KKN2 35

• MOTHERBOARD : ASUS Intel 1151 Socket Z370 Chipset Prime A D4 ATX Motherboard - Black 147

• SSD: Samsung 250 GB 860 EVO Sata III 64L V NAND Solid State Drive,MZ-76E250B/EU 58

• RAM : Corsair CMK8GX4M2B3000C15 Vengeance LPX 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR4 3000 MHz C15 XMP 2.0 High Performance Desktop Memory Kit, Black 95

• PSU : Corsair CP-9020131-UK TXM Series 750 W TX750M ATX/EPS Semi-Modular 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply Unit - Black
PSU : 90

Total £750


• CPU Intel BX80684I78700 8th Gen Core i7-8700 Processor

• CASE: UNDECIDED – Not yet included

MOTHERBOARD : ASRock H310M-HDV/M.2 - mATX Motherboard for Intel Socket 1151 CPUs

• SSD: Crucial MX500 CT500MX500SSD1(Z) 500 GB Internal SSD (3D NAND, SATA, 2.5 Inch)

• RAM : HyperX HX426C16FB2/8 8 GB 2666 MHz DDR4 CL16 DIMM 1.2 V 288-Pin Memory Kit, Black

• PSU : Corsair CP-9020101-UK CX450M 450 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply Unit

Total £584 
(not including cost of SSD Crucial MX500 as I already have one)

Is this board still active? Still haven't had a response:-(

I've been working with my friend on putting together a better build based on those 2 above. We have come together with the following build.

Can someone please let me know thoughts? Whether to change anything in the above or whether it is good as it is?

Also, to make sure it is all compatible. Thank you in advance for any advice anyone can offer!
