Woot! I have been watching for this case for a long time. Currently have a P182 and it is relatively quiet, but I wanted something super silent for my server, something to put in the bedroom and not have to turn off at night. As far as I can tell, this thing fits the bill perfectly!

Looking forward to it, and for under $125 it's priced perfectly

You need to put [HC] at the start of the thread title.

Anyway, this is awesome news.

I emailed Fractal a couple weeks ago asking about a US release and was told 2nd Quarter 2010 so not that surprised by the news. I will be buying this case

I hope they fixed the crappy door hinge. The one on the 183 was fragile. 50% of them came in to our shop broken.

Other than that I liked the case for a professional look and ease of build.

With a name like Fractal I was expecting something a bit more like this:



Still, some nice looking cases there.
