is the mobo 100% custom that you install the video card vertically?
steam machine is said to be 12" wide, 12" depth, and 3" high
i think it's nice

Same or similar way any Mini-ITX case does it?
You also don't need a custom motherboard, just a perpendicular PCI Express riser.

I do worry about thermals though. A case that small will either have some annoying high efficiency fans, or get quite hot. Especially with a 430w powersupply, although it hasn't been said whether it will be a brick design (exterior) or inside the machine itself. I'd assume it would be internal due to cabling but we really don't know too much yet.

Small ones I gather :P These aren't going to be overclocked monster rigs. Not with a case like that.
