Here is my 1U mod (11D"x17W"x1.75H"). My goal was to fit a FULL POWER (yet near silent and FULLY upgradeable) gaming desktop, in a case that is 0.18 cubic feet. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!

The specs are:

-250W PSU
-ATI HD3870 GPU
-200GB 7200RPM 2.5" SATA HD
-2GB DDR2 667 Ram
- E6600 Dual Core CPU
-External USB DVD RW Optical Drive (connects via my LCD internal USB HUB)
-8x40mm NEAR SILENT cooling fans (under 30db)
-CPU Cooler is a 80mm near silent blower type fan (under 30db even under full load).

All in 1U Supermicro Case!

Here are the pics:

Nice job there, very compact indeed.

How did you overcome the extremely loud case fans that come in the supermicro 1U's? All the ones I have at work sound like jet engines even at partial load.

I replaced the fans with Scythe Sleeve bearing fans (3500rpms and NEAR silent). Also, I have to add MANY MANY more fans, and drill ducts for additional air flow.
