Try -format=mssql05 for the case sensitive hashes.
It seems both the case sensitive and non-case sensitive are stored
typically and or by default. We got reminded of this durning our participation
in the KoreLogic contest held at Defcon (crack me if you can). The case
insensitive will fall faster than the case sensitive. I'm unsure if there is
a character limit imposed on the case insensitive one.
