That’s right, it’s the 18th and that means we are announcing the winner of the CyberPower and ThinkComputers System Giveaway! This was one of our best contest’s to date! Well first off before we announce the winner of the CyberPower and ThinkComputers System Giveaway we want to thank CyberPower PC for providing us with such an awesome system to give away! We also want to thank everyone who submitted a story, there were over 175 and reading through them over the past 3 days really made us wish we could give everyone a system. Here are the specs of the system if anyone forgot.
This past month has been insane here at ThinkComputers. At the end of last month we of course redesigned the site and moved everything over to wordpress. At first things went well then our dedicated server completely crashed. So we decided to get new hosting through a company I will not name, but their services were not that good at all. As many of you know the site loaded very slow, sometimes pages would take 30 seconds to load! So after doing some research we decided to try out The Rackspace Cloud. And so far we are very impressed, the site load very fast and we have not had any issues at all. So after all of the moving servers and things like that it is finally getting back to normal here at ThinkComputers. We also had our biggest giveaway ever! At the bottom of this post I will list the winners who have replied to the e-mail t hey were sent. Finally if you were used to the old site you know we had news on the front page, although it is not on the front page anymore it is still on the site, you can take a look at it here. Out of the 17 reviews this month my favorite would have to be the Intel Core i7 860 LGA 1156 Processor Review. It was our first 1156 processor review and we were very excited to review a new processor from Intel.
Well as you can see we have changed things around here at ThinkComputers! This new layout and content management system should bring us up to date and make it easier for you the user to navigate the site. To celebrate the new design we decided to have a HUGE contest! Our friends at ASUS, Thermaltake, Kingston, In Win, OCZ, NZXT, and CoolIT have jumped on board and provided us with 32 prizes to give away! Before we go into how you can win let’s see what’s all up for grabs….
