    $199 hp microserver N54L

    How about something with a little more oomph? Amazon is selling the Lenovo TS140 for $219 It's a little bit bigger, but has an i3-4130, 3 x 3.5" bays, plus 2 x 5.25" bays. It sips power and is very quiet. It has been sold for $199 in the past

    Lenovo ThinkServer TS130 Tower (i3-3220, 4GB RAM, No HDD) $204

    I'd compare this to the HP N54L Microserver, not a real server that needs remote management/IPMI or anything serious. Looks like you can boot whatever from USB. Throw FreeNas/ZfsGuru on a USB stick, install 4x4TB drives, and I think it would be an acceptable home storage server.

    Lenovo ThinkServer TS130 Tower (i3-3220, 4GB RAM, No HDD) $204

    Ok, so it's not the 12-36 bay behemoths in other posts, but it can fit 4 drives (with a couple of adapters), idles at 25W and supports ECC. I think it's decent enough for a light ZFS server Lenovo ThinkServer TS130 Tower Server System Intel Core i3-3220 3.3GHz 2C/4T 4GB No Hard Drive $263.99...

    Intel C202, C204, C206 Xeon E3 Bromolow Motherboards Thread

    They would lose Xeon (higher profit margin) sales if ECC worked with i5/i7's.

    New Build this is what im looking at (any suggestions)

    Won't 1155 Core-i3's and Pentium Gxxx series work with ECC when used on server chipsets ( C202, C204, C206 )?

    Intel C202, C204, C206 Xeon E3 Bromolow Motherboards Thread

    According to this post at Avs Forum there is no difference in idle power consumption between the G620 and G620T. In fact, it's the same as a Core i3-2100, given the same system configuration.

    New Build this is what im looking at (any suggestions)

    It's unofficially supported. There's a menu screen in the BIOS with standard ECC options. I'm running a TA760G with an Athlon II 250u with 25W TDP and 4GB of ECC DDR2. There's an extensive thread at silentpcreview about the A760G's ECC capabilities and power consumption
