What model Raspberry Pi should I use for Pi-hole?

Hi folks,
I'm using an old model "B" and it's working just fine!!!
The CPU load is around 8 and the worse case 10,8%.
The great issue is that it runs with low power consumption (800mA), no heat, no heatsinks, no noise... Just fine!

Got to mention:
My Rpi is set to work only in CLI mode and the total allocated
memory to GPU is the minimum allowed: 16MB (sudo RASPI-CONFIG).
So there's more Megs to CPU.
Congrats to the team, great job!!! :+1: :+1: :+1: :+1: :+1:

Sorry, I mean:
Memory usage: 9.4 %
Load: 0.65 0.45 0.23

runs super on rpi 4 with 64bit great work guys :stuck_out_tongue:
44.3 c
load 0.16 0.18 0.18
memory usage 6.5%

this is with touch screen and all on and desktop gonna combine it with volumio

Running beautifully on RPi Zero W - I think even a Pi Zero is overkill in terms of raw power.

  • Running Pi-Hole, Unbound, Log2ram
  • BT, WiFi and HDMI disabled to save power (network connection over USB2LAN dongle) and with reduced RAM allocated to GPU (thx for the tip @EASchramm)
  • With heat sink in standard RPi housing

40.1 c
load 0.04 0.1 0.13
memory usage 13.6%
