It might be wort to check out Shuttles compact boxes.
I have one, it's a DS81, and it works wonderful with Ubuntu.
It's a barebones system that they don't make anymore.
I added an Intel Wifi card in the PCI-E halflenght slot and a SSD into 
the M.2 full lenght slot.
It's my resident computer in my little house in the countryside so I 
can't access it right now,but I doubt you will get any trouble.
