Self configured for me.  I could never find any off the shelf clients 
that had everything I wanted at a reasonable price.

By far my favorite all-around client has been the D945GSEJT with Morex 
T1610 case:


Thin, fanless, easy to assemble, reliable, well supported.  The only 
thing wrong with them is the GPU which really can't do anything accelerated.

For boxes where I needed proper 3D support I went with a Zotac IONITX board.

Sadly the D945GSEJT is now EOS and the Intel replacements I last looked 
into (granted a while ago) all had issues with Linux GPU drivers.

Something like this may still be a viable option though:


However, it lacks the fanless aspect and is significantly more power hungry.
