The Zbox CI323NANO U are good boxes if you are looking for low power consumption boxes that don't need CPU intensive tasks. I initially purchased one of these for pfSense duty (Home router/ Firewall) because it has dual NICs that is compatible out of the box, and the TDP design of the CPU is less than 10 watts, which is great for running 24/7. I originally outfit this system with 8GB (2x4G), but the router can comfortably run on 4GB (or even on 2GB).
Even though the specification for this box says 8GB max, I was able to buy 16GB and it works just fine with 16GB. I was pleased with the low power consumption nature of this box that I bought a second one for Linux (Ubuntu 16.04/16.10) use.
Don't expect i3 or higher performance from this.
This also doesn't do native 4K. If you want 4K/HDMI 2.0, you will need to step up to Apollo Lake/Coffee Lake. This one is "Braswell" family
