I use supermicro 1U servers also. Work well.

Only awkward point is the room for expansion of network ports. There are 2 on the main board itseld but only 1 PCIx slot and you need to buy a riser board to fit the extra PCI slot. 

Apart from that minor issue it works really well.

I have 2x http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/1U/5015/SYS-5015A-EHF-D525.cfm.
Should fit your depth limitation, I have yet to hit performance problems with it and know that others on the list use this system as well.
