hello

i am looking for a test bench type of set up that takes up as least amount of space as possible. SFX PSU mounting is a plus. no optical or 2.5/3.5 drive mounting preferred. i need it to only hold a motherboard and a PSU. that's it.

i looked at the LIAN LI PC-T60B, but that would require modding as i would have to chop off everything before the motherboard tray.

DIYPC Alpha-GT3 looks good, but i'd like it to be even smaller.

any suggestions?
