IE Patched? Well, sort of!

Microsoft recently released a patch for the "SCOB" virus. This patch closed the hole in IE basically by disabling ADODB streams. This was enough to ensure that the ADODB hole could no longer be exploited by trojans and viruses.

However, Kuperus and http-equiv did a little bit of work, and demonstrated the Microsoft's patch is hardly the panacea everyone really needs. They found that by simply choosing a different ActiveX control, they had a working exploit once again!

End of the line for MBM

Alex has publically stated on the MBM homepage that he is going to terminate development for Motherboard Monitor. Alex gives a number of reasons, including the fact that companies are no longer willing to provide information on their sensors. When you're trying to read the sensors, it's rather hard if the manufacturer won't tell you how to.

For more information, read the MBM homepage.

Mojo1340 shows the first part of his high performance, high flow anti-dustbunny mod. Designed to protect against the dustbunnies everywhere whilst not compromising on airflow. An unexpected side effect of the mod was the reduction in fan noise from the machine too!


A new look!

By now, you should have noticed that the front page looks that little bit different. If you haven't, then it might be worth a visit to get your eyes checked! Thanks to the hard work of the Graphics team, especially Danrok and Dod, we have a new look that's definately due. Over the next few months there will be other changes around the site too, but I'm not allowed to let the cat out of the bag just yet!

whatever takes the DFI LanParty Ultra B motherboard out for a spin, and benchmarks it in the process. He also manages to pit the DFI LanParty Ultra B up against the Abit NF7s V2 board to see just which one comes out the fastest!

With the advent of Intel's 9xx chipsets that natively support tagged command queuing (TCQ) over SATA, much noise has been made about the boost in performance that TCQ supposedly offers. Many people have been looking forward to TCQ for an extra performance boost on their system.

However, things are not all they seem. Storage Review looks closely into TCQ in a RAID environment, using both SCSI and SATA. The conclusions they draw are perhaps surprising to those who have not had the oppertunity to work with storage technology. Rather than spoil their surprise, lets just say that at the lower end of the RAID market, SATA and SCSI are very close in performance. As for that TCQ - you'll have to read the article!

BODge it & Scarper - My attempt at watercooling

Gave up with the Globalwin Silentstream watercooling as it kept getting airlocks. Flawed design so sent it back.

Had a brainwave!!!

Bought a Zalman CPU Block for watercooling.

Bought a storage container (holds about 4 gallons) and 8mm clear hose from B&Q.

Dug out my old pond pump (4500 litres per hour).

Put the pump in the now water filled storage container and connected the hoses to the CPU block and tested for leaks.

Put it in my system this morning.

Ran for 20mins under full load.

Ambient temperature was 21c
CPU temp (full load) was 35c

Now its cooler and quieter!!!

Here are some pics if you are interested:
All hail the Snarf!

And the Golden Shoehorn award goes to... The Snarf. Jammed full of watercooling and 640 gb across 4 full size drives, all in an XPC chassis! Is there such a thing as too compact?
