I have two WD3200KS-00PFB0 drives in my system as well. Fortunately for you, it appears these are a common revision number.

IIRC, the DCM code is a description of the component configuration used. I doubt it will have any effect on how well a board swap will work for you. The model number is the key consideration. That needs to match exactly.

BTW, you don't need a clean room to do the board swap. Grounded work surface and tools, T8 torx bit, and the donor board are all you need.

I'm in France. I think the shipping to Australia would be prohibitively expensive since international postal rates are very high here. Also, I should apologize as my comment wasn't intended to offer one of my drives for sale. I was just pointing out that this revision number appears to be common so you should have no difficulty finding one locally. In the worst case, you could find one from the U.S. which has relatively cheap international shipping fares. Dave Bell's e-bay link might be a good start if you go that route.
