    Posted: 23 Jul 2012 at 10:59pm
I just received my beautiful new Digital Storm PC! It was one of the most painless purchasing processes ever! Talked to Mike (Sales), he was extremely knowledgeable & very, very helpful. I had my own, brand new, unopened Corsair H100, he said no prob, just send it to me, and I’ll have it put in your system. Just like that, two days later, done!
And the build time was out of this world fast! For building a total custom rig, no pre-built ODE system, from the day I called & ordered to the day it arrived at my door, only 6 days!!! That's including the weekend! Ordered it on Friday July 13th, and I received it on Thursday July 19th! If that's not a testament to an amazing company, I don't know what is!
I ordered a modified version of the Special Ops Level 3 Dreadnought system.
It arrived in perfect condition! Not a single dent or any damage on the shipping box whatsoever!
The computer looked amazing, with immaculate wire management, and started up flawlessly first time around! Nothing was loose, broken, wrong, or damaged in any way!

Here are some of the specs: (Showing only the important stuff)

System Configuration:
Chassis Model: Corsair Carbide 500R (Black Finish)
Processor: Intel Core i7 3930K 3.2GHz (Six-Core)
Motherboard: ASUS P9X79 DELUXE (Intel X79 Chipset)
System Memory: 16GB DDR3 1600MHz Digital Storm Certified Performance Series (Hand Tested)
Power Supply: 1050W Corsair Pro Silver 1050HX (Dual/Triple/Quad SLI Compatible)
Hard Drive Set 1: Operating System: 1x (120GB Solid State (By: Corsair) (Model: Force GT Series CSSD-F120GBGT-BK) (SATA 6Gbps)
Optical Drive 1: ASUS DVD-R/RW/CD-R/RW (DVD Writer 24x / CD-Writer 48x)
Video Card(s): 1x NVIDIA GeForce GT 520 1GB (Includes PhysX Technology)
Extreme Cooling: Standard Factory Heat-sink and Fan (Sent them Corsair H100)
Windows OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (64-Bit Edition)
Warranty: Life-time Expert Customer Care with 4 Year Limited Warranty

Just as a side note: This PC was not really built for gaming, it was built for HD video & photo editing, rendering, sharing, etc. Only occasional gaming, nothing too hard core. That's why I didn't get a great video card (will upgrade later), and opted for the six core cpu with a good amount of RAM.


And here it is!

My conclusion: This is a truly epic machine, exceeded all of my expectations, and I would not hesitate to buy from DS again & again! Worth every penny!
If you're on the fence whether or not to purchase from Digital Storm, DO IT!!! You won't regret it!

(I will be posting a video review of the rig shortly.)

Congrats on your new rig. Cool Thanks for sharing the pics.  We love pics of new rigs.
All evil comes from within,
Not from Without,
Therefore, the 1st step on the Holy Warrior path,
Is to recognize thyself as thy 1st enemy.
