    ASUS has introduced the new TS-8 slim chassis series to accommodate users who want a stable and flexible chassis solution. With its compact dimensions and the ability to dissipate heat efficiently, the TS-8 is a perfect mini PC addition to smaller homes and offices.

    "The P526 is the perfect trendy PDA phone for users who want to utilize the user-friendly and "Live" functions of Windows Live," said H C Hung, Head of ASUSTeK´s Handheld Business Unit. "Users will find it easy to make use of the P526 to stay connected to their friends and online communities with instant messaging chats, blog updates, e-mails and file transfers.

    Perfect Thermal Efficiency
    Heat dissipation is a critical issue for mini-PCs. Venting holes located on the side panel draws cool air into the system, while the attached air-duct and side fan funnel the air toward the processor and graphics card. The heat gathered from these components is then expelled out of the system via two high-efficient fans located at the rear of the system. Additionally, the TS-8 series’ thermal capability fully supports Intel’s P5 Prescott 3.8GHz CPU and SATA hard drives.

    Compact and Expandable
    In locations where every square inch counts, a chassis that has a size advantage is ideal. The TS-8 series provides the best of both worlds – being both compact and expandable. Based on the mATX form factor, the TS-8 chassis provides drive bays for two optical drives, one 3.5” drive and three hard drives; and space for four add-on card expansion connections for future upgrades.

    Hassle-free Installation
    With tool-free drive cages, installing optical drives is a simple process. Simply slide the drives in, and they are ready to go. The detachable hard drive cage permits users to easily install hard drives away from the computer – eliminating the need for users to contort their hands in a chassis’s cramped environment. Thumbscrews are also implemented on the side panel for easy removal and access to system interior.

    The Asus Vento is probably their best case. Im not into humongous cases, but I dont like slim, cramped cases either. I love their Vento...even though I Didnt use it in my build. Its great for heat disappation, lovely with cooling features and air flow...and nice enough to handle most all watercooling rigs.

    Asus Vento is a horrible case...its all plastic, everything is cramped inside... no good airflow which makes the fan useless.
