I've finally got around to this - sorry for the delay.I just got an ML-09B last week but I really regret not getting the more flexible sleeved cables for the SFX power supply. It's a nice case for it's size. Previously I tried some generic 4L case from ebay but the 1U PSU got wasn't modular so the cables were in the way for the side slot that I wanted to use for an ejectable SATA bay and finding a new modular 1U that I was comfortable with didn't pan out yet.
Post some pictures I'd like to see.
Here's the internals of my bedroom HTPC in a Silverstone ML-09B (it could use with a bit of dusting):
What you see here is a Core i7-4765T, which is a 35 W 4c/8t Haswell CPU (2.6-3 GHz), passively cooled by an Arctic-branded chunk of aluminium.
The motherboard is an MSi H81 something, it has 8 GB RAM and an Asus GT 1030 which is also passively cooled.
The power supply is a be quiet! 300 W something-something SFX, and there's also a 512 GB SATA SSD in here somewhere.
The only moving parts are the PSU fan, and two slim 8 cm Akasa case fans (seen above the GPU), which are super quiet, before anyone asks.
It also has a USB WiFi antenna and a BT dongle sticking out of its back (to be controlled with a BT mouse from bed).
The only possible upgrade would be swapping the 1030 with something like a 1650, but prices are still so high that it's not worth it.
I've also considered replacing the whole system with a 5700G, but its iGPU isn't really faster than the 1030, so that's probably not worth it, either.
