This is my third DS system. I will post a review later when I have time. The system was ordered on 11/10 and delivered 12/6.

Digital Storm Desktop - Config ID 1519023 (Config # 1519023)

Set up was a breeze. I was up and running in no time. The Bolt 3 is a work of art. It is seriously beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice.

Enjoy the pics, let me know if you cannot view the album. First time using google photo.

Nice.

The best thing about border collies are that they are smarter than most humans. So, yes, that makes them awesome.

I love dogs.   They're smart, loyal and don't judge or make insensitive comments. I have 3 cats right now.   Each have their own personality.   

Thanks for updating with more pics.    Real nice rig.

Awesome rig!
Quick ? , noticed you selected the red tubing, on the pics they look a bit orange? is that due to the flash/camera? or are they more orange than red? just wanted to know as I'm soon ordering one from DS.

The tubing is red. It must be the camera.

How were you able to order with the HydroLux cooling? I am looking at buying one of these, but the only cooling option available is nothing but a CPU cooler with black tubing.

ETA: Figured it out. for whatever reason the HydroLux cooling does not show up on the regular version of the Bolt 3. It only shows up on the Pro (Workstation) version.

There is no Pro version of the Bolt available with a Broadwell-E CPU like the "Ultimate" regular version of the Bolt. With the X-99 motherboards on the Pro only Xeon processors are available. I think this is stupid!!! To be able to get anything other than an AIO CPU cooler I am stuck having to buy either Skylake, which I don't want, or Xeon, which is stupid in gaming rig.

Why is the HydroLux cooling not available on the Desktop version of the Bolt 3?

I believe it has to do with the form factor ITX. Not sure if it's a space issue or not in the Bolt 3.

Edit: Also if you are willing to wait they just showed off a new version of the Bolt at CES 2017, you might want to check if they are going to offer X99 in that with Hydroluxe.

Found the new Bolt X online. I will definitely wait on it to go on sale before purchasing, especially if AMD Ryzen and Vega will be offered in it, which it looks like it will along with Kaby Lake.

Bolt is such a beautiful and savage machine, I love my DS Banshee laptop, and My DS custom rig, and I would never admit it to my wife, but her Bolt looks so much more clean and stunning.....

Pro cooling in the Bolt is the same as Lite in the other builds. Both are the Swiftech.
