    Many of you by now will have seen the new default skin on Driver Heaven. So you are all aware for the next 2 weeks Driver Heaven is helping Intel promote their Gaming C2E processors. We are trialing some new forms of advertising with selected, high profile, high quality companies we work with. There will be only a handful of companies who we rate as the best in their field. We also feel that intel right now are in an extremely strong position to offer our members some great products across the board, whether it is for enthusiast gamers or business users, so we hope this advertising scheme is not only extremely attractive, but genuinely useful to all you guys. Going on feedback we also know that most of you hate ad banners and other forms of advertising which interfere with forum browsing, so we are keen to try alternative campaigns.

    It is extremely important i point out that it is only the site skin Intel are sponsoring, all our reviews and articles fall distinctly outside this area, and we pride ourselves on honest, fair and unbiased editorial content.

    I like it :)
    might actually be changing skins for the first time in years, which is a bit scary.
    kinda miss the green blocks for the rep points though, the ticks don't stand out enough.

    Very cool colours, very nice skin. My only slight problem is that I find it harder to easily see which threads have new messages.
    Would it be possible to make the blue colour for new messages a bit brighter?

    I like techheaven the best. The new intel skin is too dark for me.

    Awesome skin... this was is staying for me. Also that graphic would look way better with a section of ground under his feet with a shadow!

    Ah about time....i now have a dh skin that matchs both my pc and my current desktop theme.

    No problems with it so far appart from the rearanged placement of the Forum/User Cp/Forums tags.But it will grow on me.

    I don't know if this is how its supposed to be on the front page with this theme.I'm not seeing any of the usual links to the forums/Search/Members etc...is this normal or some error.

    [​IMG]

    They are there when you click Offtopic via the Recent threads.

    A Second Error Noticed.This time within the forums.

    Pretty nice change in scenery, Unfortunatly it seems to slow down my forum browsing.

    *Edit* Midnight Heaven seems to do the same. No biggie, Ill stick with Tech.

    looks very nice. only two complaints, first being that clicking on the DH logo doesnt bring you back to the main site anymore. second is that the post boxes seem to be changing sizes at random, or they still continouesly shrink with each post on the page (havnt seen that nearly as much as i still am with cyborgheaven)
