The Digital Storm Aura offers a high-end gaming experience in a sleek all-in-one package. It's pricey, but includes the latest Nvidia graphics, a powerful overclockable processor, and a big curved display... the Aura is the best we've reviewed so far, which earns it our first Editors' Choice for all-in-one gaming desktops.

Now just get some NR 1080s in! I've been wanting to buy the Aura ever since it was announced, it's getting hard to wait :) I look forward to next week.

Haha, I know where I'll be then! I never thought I would be buying an all-in-one computer, crazy how far computers have come.

I hope it's not a pain to ask questions here in the review thread since the review is relevant to my question, but I was curious. If I recall reading the initial announcement on the Aura, there were talks of having multiple motherboards to choose from. In this review they also seem to be using a different motherboard than what is showing as the only motherboard option in the configuration builder now, for example the motherboard they have has only 1 ethernet port and USB-C. Did something change?

The motherboard in this review unit is the "GIGABYTE Z170N-Gaming 5" which is what we offer on the Aura. We offer two models on the Aura, this GIGABYTE model and an ASUS model.

I see. That is what I thought I read somewhere in the past, but in the configuration page I only see the option for the ASRock motherboard. That's where my confusion comes in!

You can pick the GIGABYTE as well, just click the modify button. If you're still having issues, please email me directly "[email protected]" with a screenshot of your browser.

The Asrock is a x99 chipset mobo and in the level 4. The other levels have the z170 chipset and the Asus, Gigabyte mobo.   

Hope this helps.
