Hmm didnt even notice they added this :lol: 

I agree with ulysses Antec makes awesome products and they sponsor the site so why not give them a forum spot makes total sense to me.

It seems a little out of place. Of course it's not nearly as bad as them adding a "CyberPower" sub-forum to the Homebuilt Systems forum. Not only does CyberPowerPC make sub-par PC's, but they have nothing to do with homebuilt systems. :lol:

This forum turned up at the same time that the Palit one over in the Graphics forum did and I think some people are really missing the point, what is wrong with a manufacturer sponsoring a forum where they can give and get feedback from their customers?

They're just like any other OEM builder. They cut corners anywhere they can. The PSU, RAM, and HD's are the main places they cut corners. You have to pay quite a bit to get known quality components from them. You can get a much higher quality system for less money if you build it yourself. That's what the "Homebuilt systems" section of the forums is all about. I don't know how a company that builds systems and sells them has anything to do with homebuilt systems.

I honestly see the logic here. What's wrong with a manufacturer sponsoring a site and in return getting a spot on the forums? Getting feedback from customers is one of the most important parts of business, if not, the most.

I own an Antec 1200, and TP750 Blue. Antec makes good stuff. If they pay to sponsor THF (and help keep them alive, for that matter), then it's a nice benefit for them to get a spot on the forums.

...Just my $.02.

Cheers.

Still waiting to see who the Antec reps are. They haven't popped in yet. The Palit person is pretty regular though.

how can u cut corners on ram? isnt ram just ram? sure cheap ram wont oc, but otherwise whats the difference?
and about the hdd? do they cut corners by using SEAGATE CRAP or what??? or are the hdds slower?

I have seen the antec rep pop up a few times, but he is only up to 38 post, pretty sure its good that so few people have questions he can answers
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/profile-375517.htm

If they want to sponsor the site im all for it, just means tom's may have a few cool give aways in the future. As long as tom's stays fair and reasonably unbiased in their reviews i dont care who sponsors them.

I love the 900. It has the best airflow that I have found just needs a little better wire management other than that it is the best case that I have ever owned....so yeah they deserve a spot on here

+1 for all the positive people. Antec products......works for me.

Hello mousemonkey,

Hows life been treating you, long time no see. Remember this one?


A small boy was lost at a large shopping mall. He approached a uniformed policeman and said, "I've lost my grandpa"

The cop asked, "What's he like?"

The little boy replied, "Jack Daniels and women with big tits."

Hi mousemonkey,

I see you've moved up in the world around here, congratulations! The way I see it you should have been a mod a long time ago, nobody could defuse a bad situation the way you could....100% class act. You were the the coolest member and I'm sure you're the coolest mod although the other mods are cool as well. Again, congratulations!


Christoph@ANTEC,

Sorry I didn't see your post before requesting some PSU Feedback. I purchased my 1st TPQ 1000w in January 08, and the 2nd in June 08. Both power supplies have performed well and I haven't had a problem out of either, running as good as the day I bought them. I recently added an 8800GT for physics which put me well over the power requirements. The computer never crashed at anytime during gaming or regular use. I did notice a strain on the system that wasn't there before. Since I never intended to add a 3rd video card in the 1st place to this power supply all is good, figured I would upgrade to the TPQ 1200w when I got ready to do that. The 8800GT has since been removed from the system and things are back to normal

Might as well give you some feedback on the Antec 1200 while I'm here as well since I'm a new owner. Excellent air flow and it's smaller then some of the other full towers. The compact size was a plus in my opinion, it looks neat, fits all the components with no problem and it doesn't hog up as much space as my ThermalTake Armor did. The only downside in my opinion is cable management. I had to take a cup saw to the rear drive bays to get rid of the RED fan wires, and do some drilling under the motherboard to hide more wires......The case need more outlets for good cable management.

Conclusion. I have no problem buying Atec products in the future, my next PSU will be an Antec.

Hi, and thanks for the comments. I know we have been taken care of the cable management thing. The new DF-85 will be very cool, some argue about the looking though but it's kind of cool for me at least ;)  As for the PSUs, the setup you mentioned ran with the 850 or 1000? The 1200 is one of the best 1200W PSUs in the market atm, totally different (latest) topology. We will have some new series coming during Computex next week. Maybe one of those might fit the bill even better than the 1200W TPQ.

Now I'm a little depressed, I want one of Dark Fleet towers....good job! The wire management thing wasn't that big of a deal, I guess when you want to hide as much as you can you have to do some drilling. I was down 3 selections, the CM HAF 932 Blue, the Silverstone RAVEN RV01, and the Antec Twelve Hundred. The CM had the silver interior and I was set on black, wasn't about to risk over spray painting it and it would have been just too much work. The Silverstone case was nice but I wasn't ready to take a chance on the new technology, specifically the inverted motherboard with the I/O's on top, just didn't seem like it would cool my hardware. I'm satisfied with my choice and have no regrets, well I have one regret and that's not having one of the Dark Fleet towers......maybe you can send one my way, I won't tell anybody. As for the PSU I have 2x Antec TruePower Quattro TPQ-1000 ATX12V's.

I like this. I used many Antec products over the years. In fact, my current case and power supply are both Antec. Also, it's cool they even are replying.
