I've given up on 1U -- the problem with the smaller 1Us is 
cooling (esp with AMD) and to boot there isn't really much
space.  I've found 2Us to be a great compromise (4U too big)
The fellas at ServerCase have quite a few nice chassis: -- you may want 
to ask if they have a UK counterpart.   They have a very nice
6 IDE HD removable box (RMC-2QE-460W) for $600, and a simple
4 IDE HD non-removable (CK218-400W) for $270.

This together with a ABIT board, an AMD processor, and 4-6 IDE
HDD can make for a pretty kickin box for right about $2,000 USD
and about (4-6h of assembly / testing).
