Since it is a 200 series board any 6th or 7th gen cpu will work, however it is a b250 so it will not support overclocking so buying a K series sku would cost more for a feature you won't be able to use. https://ark.intel.com/products/98086/Intel-B250-Chipset this is a link to the compatible cpu's for your board would suggest one of the i7 models

so would a normal i7 7700 be good for price/performance

Its some B250 board which makes a lot of sense as most prebuilts don't have an overclockable cpu and a B series board is cheaper because it does not support overclocking

Grab an i7 7700 off eBay, it'll be a nice improvement. Your ram is also pretty slow, you should get a faster kit or overclock your own (which is very easy to learn how to do) and you'll get a nice performance bump.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

His ram is DDR4 so its minimum speed will be 2133Mhz speccy is just bad at reporting accurate ram speed, it says my 3200 kit is at a much lower speed even though everything else has it at 3000Mhz

His single data rate is 1064, which means he has a 2133 kit, which means it's pretty slow

I'd try the stock cooler and if it seems to get too hot than you can always upgrade the cooler later
