We announced our new Forums last week and when we did we told you we would be having a giveaway. We really want people to join the forums and be active and we will be rewarding members that contribute to the ThinkComputers community. Our good friends at Antec were nice enough to provide 3 great prizes for us to give away to new forum members. Those prizes include the brand new Dark Fleet DF-85 Full Tower Case, the Dark Fleet DF-35 Mid Tower Case and the TruePower New TP-750 Blue 750W power supply. Read on for all of the details on how you can win these awesome prizes!
Antec really has not really introduced anything super ground breaking in a long time. I mean they did start their gaming case line with the 900 case and some other cases followed, but they have had the same style cases for quite some time. This year at CES I was extremely excited when I saw a set of cases that looked nothing like that Antec cases of the past and finally brought them up to date internally. The cases I’m talking about are the Dark Fleet series. This new series has 3 cases, 2 mid towers and 1 full tower. Today we will be looking at the full tower, the DF-85. This case features so many features we can’t list them all here! So go ahead and read on as we check out the Dark Fleet DF-85!
I hope everyone had a good 4th of July Weekend! Here is the news for today!

ASUS Decided to start making sound cards since the soundcard market was being dominated by creative and their X-FI line. With the new ASUS line of PCI-E soundcards, it makes it a good market for ASUS to start to dominate in, since there is little competition. With the ASUS D2X is being marketed as a Home Theater sound card along with its gaming flavor. In this review of the ASUS D2X we will put it to the test with gaming to Home Theater use.
