  1. As soon as I started WireShark the trojan dissapeared. I can't seem to start up the miner manually either. This might be the end of this short lived experiment. Revisiting above sites gave me no new copy of the files. However this here showed me that the winlogui was not in fact the malicious code, but just a piece of the puzzle, possibly some abused microsoft code. Marked .dll file no longer exists. UPDATE: Neither Recuva nor EaseUS Data Recovery could find a trace of the .dll file, so whatever removed it, did so well. I'll be reinstalling the system now. I'll need it tomorrow. Three lessons can be learned here. First, while Windows Defender totally and irreparably disintegrated without notice, both Eset and Malwarebytes reacted to the virus. Secondly, do periodicly keep an eye on your computers activity. A modern computer does not spend half of it's capacity on browsing with one tab. And lastly, you need not download to catch a trojan, and you don't even have to visit shady sites. Even normal sites can inadvertently share malware.
  2. Heyo, yesterday was a quite offline day for me, had a barbecue and all but somehow, it appears I contracted a cryptominer trojan. Since my internet activity was almost non-existant yesterday this could prove to be an excellent opportunity to alert the right people and do some fun research of our own! I strictly reinstall the whole OS whenever I find one so it's not like I can wreck it more than what I already consider it is. So, what does it do? It utilizes about 50% of the CPU, and does nothing on the GPU. It also disregards any user activity, however it ceases immediately whenever sysmon or task manager is started and seems to have a delayed startup after that. This makes it almost impossible for unsuspecting users to find root it out, however after noticing said pattern twice this morning it became quite clear without a doubt what was happening so playing some whack a mole with sysmon I managed to find it, winlogui.exe. Oddly enough, I could not run a windows defender scan to find the virus either, which send my noggin' joggin' and sparked some interest. Investigation on the web confirmed it was a cryptominer and a malwarebytes scan shone further light on the subject. This explains why the defender was acting up. So then, when did I get this odd virus? Hmm, yesterday! Could it be one of the two files I downloaded? Possibly, but probably not. Could it had somehow broken through what we're told is impenetrable, our beloved web browser? Naaah, this browser history seems to innocent for that... Wait! There's a backdoor in that malwarebyte report! Ah, so maybe I've been helping DDoS kiddos from their fortnite games for a while and now they decided that my computer ought to mine some crypto while I'm at it? 11.40... So the backdoor and the trojan are connected, but the backdoor didn't lead to the trojan. Well, now I'm running out of leads... Scanning the devices connected to this LAN in the last 24 hours showed no related viruses either. Back to the browsing history I guess? We can assume Alphabet and Steam keeps their servers in check and aren't malevolent enough to spread this plague yet Before I delve into those sites, let's have a look at who we're mining for...

    Is unshielded cat7 better than S/FTP cat 6?

    Okay, thanks!

    Is unshielded cat7 better than S/FTP cat 6?

    Thank you for the response! Sorry, I meant 20cm. Sadly pre-made isn't an option since the hole is too small to fit the head - giggity. But I'm fine with buying a roll, since I have the necessary tools and pre-made 20cm unshielded cat6 cables go for 6 USD! This way I can save a few lunches and have perfect length cables whenever I need. I'm just not sure which one to choose Even if the pricing is the same?
  5. Regarding overall speed in a home environment and resistance to EMF and such. I need to pull 2dm of cable parallel to a 240V socket, ~2 dm away. A stupid place to pull cable, but seeing as there is already a hole in the wall I'd rather not make Swiss cheese out of it. And since pricing is stupid (1usd/m @ 100m vs 1.5usd/m @ 50m) I'll need to buy a whole roll of 100m, so I'm unsure which one to choose. Thoughts? P.S, since I only need 2dm of cable I'll be buying the one with multiple threads in each line, I don't know what they're named in English.

    Is there any gain to watercooling then? A 30$ 212 evo performs better than a 200$ AIO 55C is 6C cooler than a 90$ NH-D15

    That eisbaer 240mm review I posted a screenshot of is quite misleading. 7.2 delta C at 60W would mean my CPU should be running at below 30C on load. Somehow I believed 200$ of watercooling could accomplish that.

    The load should've been the same, however I'm back at 80C

    Maybe I should chill down a bit and let it settle in? That air bubble prolly got stuck in the rad now instead, didn't it?

    Now it just dropped down to 62C?

    They are blowing the air out, although my case is open for now Been stressing it now for a while, 82C

    How problematic are airbubbles? Unless I can top off with liquid I'm bound to have them ain't I? EDIT: I actually really suspect it's the bubbles. I saw a huge one earlier, abouta teaspoon large in the respump, any clever way to get rid of them? EDIT2: A reservoir seems perfect for such a task, however opening the fill hole would surely spill the liquid out everywhere, not sure what the point was with having a fill port on the block?

    Like so, fans are pull inside the top From what I understand reservoirs should be the highest point in a waterloop, but how would that work with an AIO?

    But how come the Eisbaer 280 is equal to a 212 evo?

    These are the temps the Eisbaer 240 gets
