Reducing security risks from open source software

Back in April we said the UK overclocking sector was growing apace and growing up, citing Stoke-based Overclockers UK (OcUK) as an example of this. Looks like we backed a winner - which is nice.

OcUK, as well as consolidating its position as top dog in the UK overclocked kit reseller market, has now announced that it has teamed up with news 'n' reviews site Hexus.

It's not the sort of news that's going to set the world on fire, but we like to hear about successes in the UK hardware sector. Apart from which we think Dave Ross, Hexus' main man, is a top geezer and Mark Proudfoot - OcUK's MD - is a thoroughly nice chap too.

In essence the deal between the two means that Hexus will review all the latest kit that OcUK has for sale, which should mean that if you're looking for someone else's opinion on something you're planning to buy from OcUK you won't have to look too far. We're not entirely sure what will happen if ever Hexus spots a three-legged pony for sale on OcUK, it could put an interesting spin on the new relationship, but we're sure OcUK knows its runners and riders well enough to never steer its punters toward a wrong 'un.

OcUK was the first place to publish a review of the Abit KA7 mobo, and reckons that it can regularly beat the rest of the pack when it comes to getting hold of new products on early release. Something which could boost Hexus' position in the hardware review site sector. ®
