I'm looking for a low profile silent case for a micro-ATX board that can be arranged vertically (just to reuse components for another old horizontal case I can not use anymore). Any recommendation for such a vertical case?

Thanks in advance

Oscar

It is a Gigabyte h55m-usb3 board (2 dual core i3 processors)

The current case also includes

AMD radeon 6670 low profile (with fan) graphics
Western Digital wd20EARS-00mwb0 Hard disk
4gb RAM
WINTV Nova TD-500 Tuner card
LG CH10LS20 Blu-ray

Thanks

Sorry, AFAIK no: IME the main issue with any slim enclosure is that it usually sports a TFX/SFX PSU, which (in order to be silent) deserves a fan swap (often not feasible as they use slim fans), and/or to drive that PSU fan through an available external fan header (which your mobo doesn't have): even suitable aftermarket PSUs (such as Seasonic gold-rated TFX, or beQuiet! one) are far from being "silent", out of the box.

I was quite happy with the NSK1480. There is a documented mod at the end of the review here to replace the 80x15 fan with a 80x25 one of your choice.
