Received my bolt build a couple weeks ago. Overall, this thing blew away my expectations performance wise as well as aesthetically. It was built and delivered within the time-frame they said it would.



The only negative things I have to say are as follows: It arrived with a motherboard screw missing, and whoever installed the components clearly didn't wear gloves, and left enough fingerprints and smudges on the GPU waterblock/plumbing lines to be able to submit a fingerprint id profile lol... Was kind of a bummer being stoked to open up my 3k+ build finally and seeing fingerprints all over it and having to clean it, but it is what it is.

Welcome to the forum bwceyar ! Congrats on the new rig..    Hope it performs great for you.

Sharp looking Bolt X.   Make very certain that the missing mobo mounting screw is not loose somewhere inside that case....you don't need any shorts.   

Reviews like this will help to improve DS production & QC details when they look at your customer input.   
FYI...DS keeps QC exit photos of each build so they can eliminate questions about rig condition when it left DS, as shipper caused damage is not unusual.   
Be interesting to see if they can spot the screw installed on that corner or not...shipping can jar things loose.

Thank you for sharing the images.
Awesome

I cannot imagine what jarring knocked a screw loose. My system came with a memory stick bouncing around the case and another half way out (and shipped in a pallet!) but loose screws..... more than likely never installed.
Enjoy. Big%20Smile

What is your plan for changing the fluid when the time comes?

Where do you disconnect and drain from in this build?

I'm also curious about what hardware monitor says about your GPU temps after playing for an hour or so?

Thanks for any feedback you might have.
