Even more FWIW, Antec have a section on their site called 'B-Stock' 
which is for returned/overtock items and the prices are really good. But 
I have no idea if they will ship internationally. Quite likely so long 
as you are willing to pay..

And I second all the votes in favour of the P182. I use one for my 
desktop  machine at work. It lives nest to the typing credenza so the 
quiet is appreciated. I only use one or two of the many provided fans.


         Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
          I may wish to offend you again in the future.
