PS. the PSU has support for S-ATA Drives

and here is what antec say about the case...

The Quietest Case Available.

There's quiet. And then there's ultra-quiet. The kind of quiet that even meditating monks would envy. We designed our Sonata case with that sort of blissful silence in mind. And we'd like to celebrate the results. (Quietly, of course.)
Independent laboratory testing proves that Sonata is three times quieter than a comparable high-performance mid-tower case. How quiet? Just 20.4 dBA. Which means Sonata is literally quieter than a whisper. Just like we promised.

Sonata. Quietly the best.

Is it definatly a 380w PSU and how much could you ship it for?

Is it perfect condition? Any scratches? knocks? dents? scuffs? defects of any kind?

It says 380w (ATX12v, SATA) on the side of the PSU, so it must be!

It will be £12 for royal mail standard parcel, so £57 delivered.

I have just inspected the case and can see no scratches, i have always been very careful not to scratch it. - all the removable drive bays are there and as far as i can tell so are all the screws etc...

I think it is Flopps who has one of these cases, and i am sure he will agree that it is amazing!

kgb, I think Chris recently done a build for somebody using a Sonata case.

I do have one, they're good and real good to look at, imo.

And that's a fair price as well.

If I hadn't just bought an Antec SLK300B black case, I'd have had this case.

If only you'd posted a week or two earlier
