While many of us are content with traditional desktop tower PCs, there are those who have been pushing for a more compact and quieter alternative.

The idea behind the Thin Mini-ITX format, besides the obvious which is to create seriously compact computers, is also to allow for DIY all-in-ones (think of little PCs you can attach to the back of your monitor).
