This build was a hyper-v server that ran pfSense as my home router for awhile. It pulled around 20-22 watts and was powered from a laptop power brick. It also ran 3-4 other small VMs at any given time.
I'm near a Microcenter and got a really good deal on the 5350 and the motherboard so part of this build was driven by trying to create a capable system for as low as possible.
Following the theme of creating a system for as low as possible, and needing to get this to fit behind my TV near the cable modem the case was created using plexi and parts from a hardware store. This worked out surprisingly well in the end. Yes, I know the cables could have been neater but this was a purely functional build so I didn't spend much time neatening it up.
The chips around the DC input would get pretty hot so I put a spare fan over them and added some small heatsinks to keep the temperature down.
Nice APU, surprisingly capable for the price
Great motherboard, DC input is nice
