Using a Zalman CNPS10x Flex. Backplate elevates the whole board which can warp the pcb over time if you dont add some height to the rubber washers.

Tecnofront HWD is probably the best if you want to water cool. Although it is a bit on the pricey side. Especially since it is just acrylic.

I just ordered one of these for mini-itx.
It's more of an open air case but that is what I was looking for.

If your in any way handy take a look at making one yourself. I like the look of this one here.

The Very Low Cost DIY Benching Station - Overclockers Forums

He does an all wood version for $100 so Id imagine you could do it yourself for a fraction of the cost. I think the metal and wood looks sharp though.

It is a custom build rotary SS cooler. The rads you see are heatercores that I modded to cool my H20 system. I tore one of em out of an old van from 1980 haha. Two more efficient than one.

You can do one for $100 out of Plexiglas and aluminum:

PS i have no shame so this is not a shameless plug.
