Hi, has anyone else noticed that the flange on the USB connector of the Pi's that are made in the UK, are ever so slightly wider i'm guessing 0.5 mm wider.

Because of the wider flange My UK built Pi wont fit into the case I bought, from Built to Spec.

Question is has anyone else noticed this?

and are the guys from built to spec aware?

Seriously, hope you can take a joke, what did they say when you asked...?

I've also noticed this - my brand new 512MB Raspberry Pi purchased from CPC does not fit into their Cyntech Deluxe Case (case product code SC12833).
The USB connector is the problem; it's slightly too large, as the original poster said.
My older Pi (256MB model) fits the case perfectly.
