Would like to make a small form PC using parts I already have (CPU, SSD, RAM)

Hi -

I have some parts that I would like to be able to use to make a small form PC for general office tasks including 4K output (no gaming).

Here's what I have already:
i7-6700 SR2L2 3.48GHz
Sandisk x400 512GB M.2 SSD
16GB DDR4 RAM (8gb sticks x 2) Aegis F4-2133C15D-16GIS

I looked into getting an Intel NUC, but obviously with this I would only be able to use my SSD. Is there something similar in size/function? How easy is this to do?

Thanks!

What about a Mini ITX motherboard and then pick a small case? It will be larger then a NUC but far smaller then a traditional desktop.

ASRock's Deskmini 110W should meet your needs.

Thanks this looks good - except it seems this takes laptop memory, and I believe I have desktop memory. Any other choices?

I would key in my components in this site and pick from the list. The site always show a Compatibility Check.

I'm with LiquidRetro... grab yourself a mini ITX,case and power supply, and you're good to go. There *might* be some barebones options on Newegg or similar, but those are probably just as pricey as picking your own stuff out.

Nearly every problem and atrocity in the world boils down to someone's pursuit of imaginary things (religion, borders, money). Do away with these and humanity might have a chance.
