Pretty cool and should give you the best chance at an uber low power consumption machine with the power brick, the only con is the price.

I've been looking at this VESA mount case:

It has quite a bit more room than the ISK110 which will hopefully also let is run cooler than the M350.

It's also available w/o the VESA bracket.

I have the M350 case. The only drawback is that it uses 100mm VESA mount and my monitor is 75mm. So an adapter plate is added. A 90deg HDMI cable is used since this case covers the connector panel on my LG monitor. This case is available from many sources for about $40.

Great idea! Question, specs say that case is that case is 72mm (2.83 inches) tall. Which cpu cooler are you running there in that shot ?

If you use the standard intel Sandybidge fan, the HDD mounting bracket will not fit. Then just mount it with Velcro strips. Fan does touch the case and a felt bumper on top will buffer it again any vibration noise.

I am using a Dynatron T459 HSF which will fit under the HDD and mounting bracket. There is a higher CFM model T357 which is a bit louder. Gelid has a low profile HSF too.

My setup is using a 2.5in intel SSD. Intel DH61AG MB has a miniPCIe slot that can take a SSD and eliminate the need for a SATA SSD/HDD. The new DQ77KB is an updated version of the DH61AG.

Anybody know how Antec is at selling piece parts? I have an ISK100, I'd love to buy just the VESA bracket that comes with this ISK110. That way I could keep the cooling fan that came with the ISK100 and mount this thing to a wall in my closet.
