    Unfortunately, they're getting harder to find.

    Can't find anything for Sweden, but I did locate a site in the UK that claims to have stock on the 300W version (not ePower Juice Box, but it's the same 300W unit they sell - not sure who actually manufactures them - need manufacturer ID off of the PCB to find out).

    If you're still interested in locating a source in Sweden, the best thing I can think of, is to go to any reputable site you can find and search each one to see if they have a listing for it (and if they have stock).

    Good luck. :)

    I have this for my 2008 Pro and it works well. Only thing is I've not managed to actually put it into the optical bay as the cables are far to bulky to thread through the hole already occupied by tons of other cables. I currently have it sitting on top of my Pro with daisy chained molex cables threaded through that hole (barely got it through), so the side door is always of.

    Would work, but you could also try running them through a PCI bracket on an unused PCIe slot.

    But there have been others that managed to get it into the optical bay (not sure what other cables may have been in the way/caused macest's difficulties).

    What a colorful array to chose from:

    I just prefer the old Juicy Juice one:

    Nice design IMO.

    At the back of the optical bay there is a hole where all the power cables run through. The cables supplied are big, like 1cm diameter, plus the plugs wouldn't go through.

    Others that got it in, went the other way (between where you access the internals and door.

    One found that cutting the support beam on the inside of the removable door worked very well, and didn't cause any issues. Granted, it could affect retail value, but you can get a new part if needed.

    But from a cosmetic POV, nothing is changed on the outside, so you'd only see it if you remove the door. Pretty ingenious IMO. :)
