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.
