I am going to build a 16" + FH AR with all the evil goodies. What is the advantages that a m4 barrel has over a standard 16" barrel? Is it just weight or does the m4 stay cooler because of more surface area? How much lighter are the m4 barrels?

I think the M4 may have less surface area actually. Think about it, it's got a smaller circumference overall. The benefits are weight savings, M203 mountability, and coolness factor. That's about it. If you don't care about these things, get a straight "spaghetti noodle" type barrel.
