    Thanks, easy listen as always. Sorry to say I don't think Harry's pleading for a free case is going to draw out any results *_*

    Good podcast and a fun listen. Just a quick question - has the Corsair 800D completely passed Bit Tech / CustomPC by? It's never been reviewed and when you were discussing water-cooling cases, it didn't get a mention.

    I love it, the highlight of my month :) I just wish you did them more often...

    And Harry didn't sing in this one...

    And why the empty 4 minutes on the end?

    It's not passed us by, we did a preview on the very first sample in the UK ages back on bit-tech, but Corsair was so displeased with what we wrote it had a hissy fit and refused to send one in for review when the retail version of the case went into production.

    Thats a shame. Corsair seem to be a bit sensitive? I remember they wouldn't participate in a PSU group test because of some dispute over testing methods?

    Another great podcast! I thoroughly enjoy listening to Harry's SSD lectures, I just can't get enough of learning about SSD's :rock:.

    With all the talk about USB3, I've got a question for you:
    Can you upgrade a laptop to USB3? ie with an Express card?
    If we get larger and more power hungry 2.5" external drives in the future, they may well need the added power supply from USB3 to work, even if they can use the USB2 data bus to transfet data.
    Is such an upgarde possible, or would a USB3 card not provide the same power as a built in USB3 port?
