Just wondering and Im sure someone will chime in....but would the Asrock J3355B work based on the needs? It can handle OpenVPN speeds 200mbps+ has AES-NI and the motherboard and cpu can be had for less than $60.
If we're playing "favorite solution" I'd spec an APU2 for this and be done with it. :)

APU2 runs hotter than g4400t i guess.
and you can have the two builds for the same Price. then why not a better one ?

Does this MoBo has a g4400t CPU built in or am i understanding it wrong ?
can you clear my doubt pls ? did you mean Asrock J3355B as MoBo only or with CPU ?
Edit: sorry did a small Research on Google. i found out the Answer. Dont bother to reply.

Well, if you can get them for the same price then go ahead and get the g4400t. Around here the APU2 would be significantly cheaper.

I am talking about the longetivity of the parts used here. If ist too hot, it may malfunction and ist life will definitely reduce.

I dont know where here means, but in Germany i can get g4400t for 63 and APU2C4 for 172. I definitely see a Benifit there in using g4400t. i am not recommending you to use it so that you answer me like so what. i am just pointing out the pros and cons here. i think thats why we are here in a Forum to discuss and suggest.
Anyway thanks for your Time in replying to my message.

There's a design temperature and the APU2 doesn't exceed it. I'm constantly amazed by how much effort people waste trying to make computers cooler for no reason at all.

If you can get an entire g4400t system for 63, go for it. I'd expect to pay that much for the CPU and still have to buy motherboard, case, and memory. In this area the APU2 will be less than $150 all in, and there's nothing else that you can buy new for that much. The next cheapest option (and the step up for higher VPN requirements) is a J3355B, which is closer to $200 complete (and requires trolling ebay for some sketchy dual port nic).

My experience with design temperatures....

CPUs with design temperatures of 100c start throttling at 70c.

People can say they do not, but I've never had a chip with a t-junction of 100c make it beyond 80c before my computer turned into a snail.

well, since I haven't seen an APU2 get that hot I'm not sure it's relevant. they tend to run hotter than a regular desktop at idle, but they don't get all that much hotter under load. (assuming the heatsink isn't installed wrong.)
