Have you ever wondered why there are so many viruses and other malware out there just waiting to infect your PC(s)?  Is it really possible that there are so many people these days who have the intelligence and the lack of scruples required to make so many viruses?  Or is it more probable that there are a few bright people out there who have let greed override their sense of right and wrong and are willing to sell the fruits of their intellectual labor to others?  It could very well end up being a mix of the two and other factors, but it certainly seems that a program called Pinch could very well be an example of the latter: “One of the most dangerous features of Pinch can be exploited through...

It seems like just yesterday having 2GB of RAM made a system an ultimate gaming rig, and now here comes Super Talent with their 4GB DDR2-800 kit. At first glance one might wonder if Super Talent is shipping memory kits with 4 1GB sticks, but thankfully the answer is no. There are two 2GB DDR2-800 memory modules in the kit, and it looks like they'll be hitting the street for about $438 a kit. "San Jose, California - March 26, 2007 -- Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of DRAM memory modules and flash products, today announced a new 4 GigaByte 800MHz DDR2 memory kit that is ideal for gamers and enthusiasts.

Hello Everyone.  We've just made a new article live featuring OCZ's brand-new Flex XLC Water-Cooled CAS-3 DDR2-800 2GB hybrid memory kit. Here's a snip from the piece: "With the release of their Flex XLC modules, OCZ is offering a product which is substantially more flexible than most other enthusiast class memory modules on the market. They can be air-cooled or water-cooled. They'll run at lower clock speeds with tight timings, or at high clock speeds with more relaxed timings. The Flex XLC modules are unique, efficient, and from what we've seen thus far, the pricing is in line with other high-end modules."... Read more...
For reasons unknown, a good portion of the enthusiast market still thinks that memory cooling is a fruitless effort. Many high-end users still believe that memory chips run plenty cool, and that putting heat spreaders and heatsinks on them is a superficial effort at best, and that they don't provide any major benefits. The fact that nearly all high-end memory module and graphics card memory manufacturers use some sort of additional cooling doesn't seem to matter. For a long time, I was a member of this camp as well. The first memory modules with heat-spreaders showed themselves in 2000-2001, right about the time that the industry was shifting from SDRAM to DDR SDRAM, and Rambus RDRAM... Read more...

LightScribe gives Linux support but a color-capable version is still in resesarch This week, LightScribe announced a new toolkit for Linux that allows users to install and use (PDF) LightScribe-enabled disc burners to create laser-printed, direct-to-disc designs and labels. The new release is publically available and is free as a SDK. The technology was previously only available to Windows users because of the availability of a proper driver and client-side software. LightScribe is a technology that HP is continuing to develop. The technology allows grayscale images to be burned into the label side of a disc, creating an image that's somewhat like a black and white photograph. The depth of... Read more...

Do you own a cat/s and have computers?  If you do, then you may want to take a look at this interesting article which talks about the dangers of litter dust near computers. Dust, especially clay dust, is a very real threat to electronics. Clay is naturally capacitive and conductive. In addition to its ability to short or damage electronics, it acts as an "insulation" of sorts and it will hamper the normal cooling of a computer. This extends to any electronic device: monitors, speakers, stereos, televisions - anything that's exposed to the air is exposed to dust. Having owned a cat for many years, I for one can vouch for the fact that litter dust migrates out and clogs with its fine dust particles.... Read more...
Water cooling for high-end PCs is, in theory, a terrific idea. Using water to cool vital system components like your CPU and GPU allow for cooler temperatures, lower noise levels, longer component life spans and / or enhanced overclockability. Water is simply a more efficient medium for transferring heat compared to traditional metal-based, airflow cooled heatsinks. With CPU and GPU power levels increasing, it seemingly appeared as if the industry was bracing for a transition to water cooling in late 2005 / early 2006, as if the technology would be necessary in order to keep up the clock speed increases of the past year. However, a new industry wide focus on performance-per-watt has given air... Read more...
Kingston has been known throughout the industry as a steady-hand, a reliable partner, a company which is stable and never really pushed the bar in terms of enthusiast memory modules. If you wanted a solid, name-brand memory module which would be almost guaranteed to work, Kingston was one of the few brands which one should look for. They were respected in many markets, but until a few years ago, they weren't a name you would think of if you were looking to push the envelope in terms of overclocking. Over the last year in particular, Kingston has been particularly aggressive in promoting their new HyperX line of memory modules, designed to directly target overclockers. Kingston has kept their...

If you're in the market for some high-end DDR RAM, Madshrimps has a review of Corsair's TWINX2048-4400PRO 2GB Memory Kit that'll be of interest.  At lower clock speeds, this memory will run with tight timings, relax the timings though and this still will hit some impressive clock speeds... "What can possibly be said about Corsair which hasn't been said before. Their products are known and respected worldwide, as is their reputation for producing the highest quality memory. Their memory is the most consistent ever tested with every product to date either meeting or exceeding specifications. Today we test a product from their... Read more...

Need super fast ram? How about buying SuperTalent? Though they're not as well known as brands such as Corsair or Mushkin, they have produced some extremely fast(and stable) memory. Getting this speed in a 2GB kit comes with a price though. Are you willing to pay?"AMD will present the AM2 socket this summer, which supports DDR2 PC6400 RAM. Intel based motherboards can already use such RAM and so we have most manufacturers entering a 'memory war', with every RAM manufacturer trying to design and release high speed DDR2 modules while offering good value as well. This 'memory war' seems to get interesting as Super Talent, a less known company among the enthusiast circles, released the (for the time... Read more...
The crew at HardCoreWare.Net sent word that they've posted a review of a new 2GB memory kit from OCZ. The EL DDR PC3200 Gold GX XTC sticks feature OCZ's new XTC heatspreaders that prompted Corsair to distribute a whitepaper detailing the benefits (or lack thereof) of hearspreaders on RAM. "The name is certainly a mouthful - today we're looking at OCZ's latest PC3200 product. The GX (which stands for Gamer eXtreme) features lowest latency timings we've seen on a 2GB kit - 2-3-3-8. It also sports a nice new XTC heatspreader which we'll put to the test."... Read more...
Watercooling isn't cheap, but the prices have become fairly reasonable over the years. If you're still running on air, but find yourself looking for something a little better, XSPC's new X20 is aiming to be a solid choice. It's a small system, but as Madshrimps reports, it gets the job done. "XSPC is fairly new to the water cooling world. Their first water cooling kit has been knighted X20. The kit is both compact and compatible with most motherboard sockets. In this respect X20 may be the ideal entry level kit."... Read more...

Anandtech has published the second part of their roundup of 2GB DDR kits to see which memory vendors should be receiving your hard-earned cash. With nearly every major memory vendor represented, the article does a good job of rounding up the usual suspects and weeding out the less than stellar performers. In the end, the editor has no problem dividing the best modules from the rest of the field. However, there are some interesting questions nested at the end of the article that might just complicate that upcoming memory purchase you were planning. The only real question is whether you really want to invest in 2GB of DDR with AMD DDR2 just around... Read more...
