Is already on NewEgg... I remember seeing this during CES... was pretty nice. I am kind of weary though about the price... the P182 can be had for $100...

nevertheless i still want one.

Well right now I am running my OC'd 3GHz E6600 with my XP120 and a Nexus 120mm @ 12V and it is perfectly fine to what I want. I really dont care about the fanless / fanned part, because I know my Nexus fan is really quiet to begin with.

I must say, it is interesting to see how these have changed from the S2000 series. They basically added a large vent area on the right side whereas the S2000 just had a strip of vents on both sides. They also added the Pocket Drive in the bottom, which I think is useless, but can act as extra intake...
