Today was the big day and it was arrival day for the "Last of the Epochians" Computer. Sorry I don't have pictures of the "unboxing" but I don't have a lot of room to have pictures taken and remove the computer from the box. Never fear, I do have some pictures, not a lot, there is not much to show, light wise, very basic looking, which is what I wanted. Spec are in my signature. The packaging has improved greatly, now that my machine came in a trampoline of plastic, it never hit once during it's trip to Michigan. No drips, dings, scratches or anything. I installed my data storage drive and now am in the process of tweaking my items and such.

Very happy so far, been only three hours up and still waiting for it to make some noise. Kudos once again to DS on another fine job! The last picture is after, in my excitement, I spilled my trash can over!

One slight hiccup, looks like I have a bad stick of ram, DS going to send me out 4 new sticks, here's to hoping this will eliminate this small issue.  System is running great otherwise, quiet, fast, good to hear that potato chip fall out of the bag and hit the table now LOL

Not sure to be honest, had two bsod's, well if you can call them that in Win 8 =)  Took out the sticks one by one, and in each slot, all slots worked and one stick did not work in any slot, so figured it was that problem.  Funny thing is Memtest did not catch a problem with the ram, just said there was 12 gb installed.

It might be a driver problem. When I reinstalled Windows 8 I had a driver issue specifically the Sata Driver. When I noticed this I desinstalled that driver and never again installed it. Now windows 8 is performing well, no issues, no BSOD. Also at the beginning DS was kind enough to replace my 240GB Corsair Neutron GTX SSD. Dont worry DS will take care of your problem.

Also, replacing the bad stick solved my ram issue of only reading 12 gb

*UPDATE*
After some minor memory stick issues and small items, we are back on Terra fir ma!

Running cool and fast, just the way I pictured it. Titans at max load running about 70c, no load sitting at 35c. No BSOD's or random reboots. Gaming is really nice at 2560X1600 on my Dell. Smooth like glass. No issues with CPU, running cool and system overall is almost silent (considering my basement is like a refrigerator . Overall happiness, 8 out of 10, considering it's my 3rd system, would still recommend Digital Storm.

Really a nice system! Glad that everything is working well. I like my single Titan I put in my 4 year old system. Sure made it a lot better in gaming with room to grow if I want multiple monitors or highest resolutions.
