One of the mini itx cases I've been looking at is the Travla series.  
I'm not sure how good they are on cooling, but they use an external 
power pack (to reduce heat) and the site says they can run fanless in 
some configurations (but doesn't give details of what configurations).  
Some of the cases can also handle up to two pci slots (which is why I'm 
interested in them).  The pricing is significantly cheaper than the 
"hush" case, but the case isn't as "pretty".  Case details are here:
