custom AIO might sort it - maybe?
Definitely not space for a radiator, pump and fan though!
I grabbed one of these to try out as an experiment at work...https://www.businessdirect.bt.com/p...010u---1-7-ghz-ultra-compact-pc-kit-997Z.html It's always good to try out these things so we can offer our customers better solutions for their needs.
I paired it with a Crucial Msata 128GB drive and 8GB of RAM. Its actually not bad for office use and for media but thats about it. I ran the CPC benchmark on for a laugh and it just scraped 953 points!
But it was silent the whole time
I see some modding potential in this little machine. I would be interesting to look at separating the central cooler from the CPU and GPU core and building a more suitable enclosure (possibly super thin with a wider foot print) and proper cooling. Really interesting product, such a shame that the implementation simply isn't up to snuff.

Severe throttling of the GTX870M* (it is NOT a GTX760 despite the name) and inconsistent gaming performance.
* or GTX660TI rebadged - 1344SP / 192bit memory interface.
