I had the same case with the same problem. Unfortunately when I removed them they broke.

If I recall I purchased These from EndPCnoise.com. The kit is nice, because I ended up using the other pieces for fans in a friends computer.

Yeah, if you do a lot of gaming you'll probably want to stick with 32-bit. Every piece of software should work, but (graphics, sound, etc)drivers for XP-64 aren't as mature as the 32-bit ones so 64-bit is probably slower for gaming. XP-64 is really a sort of interim solution until Vista arrives so ...

I have a single Hard drive in the lower chamber. I found the Seasonic did not draw enough air in to cool my drive as did GrayBeard. I put a 5v 120mm fan and all is quiet and cool.

Mounting S12 430 in a P180 w/ A8N Dlx (upside down or not?)

I read the extensive review of the P180 and saw in the pictures that the Seasonic S12 430 is mounted right side up (PSU fan on bottom), however, if mounted that way it seems that it would be extremely difficult to connect the 4 pin 12V ATX.
