I can easily build a supermicro box, but they tend to be noisy :-)
Another option I think is to get 2U supermicro, which obviously will
quieter. However, I wanted to get some feedback about  HP DL1xx vs IBM
x3250 vs DELL R200 since if they are more silent than supermicro I can
go with them. I already have 2 1 U machine and one of them DELL 1650
seems quite noisy and old :-) so did not want to risk to raise noise
level much more.
