Shortest DVD-R or BD-R on the market for the PC?

So, I am presently building a PC into a micro AT case. Ran into a small problem, the DVD-R I have runs smack into the motherboard and won't clear. Is there a really short DVD-R or BD-R drive out there?

    But not BD-R, which needs USB 3. Though, hmm, for the Micro AT build, a DVD-RW would do, but for my main rig I would like Blu-Ray capabilities. Some of my movies are on Blu-Ray. .
