These two µ’s members came to help out with my fan replacement. It turned out the horrible sounds were rice grains stuck in the fan, rather than a broken fan. I won’t bring up last year’s incident where someone in my household flooded the counter, resulting in my having to place my MBP in a box of rice for two weeks. What I didn’t know is that there were still some rice inside that must have shifted and got in the fan.

Synchrotech lent me a Delock 42513 Bus Powered Thunderbolt External Enclosure for SATA 6Gb/s 2.5-in SSD/HDD. It is billed as one of the first bus powered cases, and I am unaware of any others. I only had a Western Digital WDC WD3200BEKX-00B7WT0 320GB HDD on hand to test it. It mounted no problems, and the speed tests were in line with a hard drive of it's type. Bus power is a long overdue feature, but welcome nonetheless.
