Anyone know how long each stage will take? I’m on stage 1 right now and I have a feeling it will take a while.

Stages 1 through 3 may be where your longest wait lies.

I bought mine the 1st (Sunday)
So I went into stage 1 Monday the 2nd
Stage 2: 4th
Stage 3: the 12th (this took a while and i even reached out to see if something was up, given all that’s happening in the world, if there were any missing parts and if so could I know about it)

4,5,6 seem to go fairly quicker
Stage 4&5 for me happened on the same day last Friday
Just got an update in the last hour that I’m on stage 6 (today the 16th)

Alex was kind enough to project that my rig will ship this Wednesday. So
If you are willing to wait it out, you’re looking at 3-4 week time period. But from what I hear it’s all worth it! Hopefully this gives you an idea..

It really depends on what you ordered, the season you place you order in, availability of parts and who knows what else. They usually stick to the estimated time. Note it does not include weekends or holidays. Smile

Remember there were a number of disrupting holidays in between so the timeline is extended a bit. The trade disruptions and Covid protocols are not the best for smooth operations.

Soon.

I was hoping mine would go to Stage 4 today but no luck for me either. I would have ordered Priority Build for sure had they given me the option. Hopefully you'll get an update soon.

Mine is taking a literal etern1ty. But that's ok - it's an EPIC rig and I'm so stoked. I want it to come to me in nothing but perfection.

Stage 1: Initial Order Date - 11/30/2021
Stage 2: Inventory Assigned - 12/8/2021
Stage 3: Pending Assembly - 12/21/2021
Stage 4: Assembly Started - 12/23/2021
Stage 5: Stress Testing & Benchmarking - 1/26/2022

Can blame the DDR5 RAM shortage for these delays.

2 months and still at stage 5? What was your estimated shipping timeframe when you ordered? Mine was 14-21 business days, current only stage 2 at day 17-18 with a 14-21 day estimation

Original estimate was “end of December” but the DDR5 is what held up the whole thing. This rig ain’t your usual rig either though so I’m sure they are Extra caring for it lol. $7500 build.

Dam. that price tag definitely sounds like a beast lol.

I am a first time buyer here. Ordered another rig for my daughter from a different site with similar specs and it has already shipped.

I spoke with them today and it looks like my Aventum X is also running late meanwhile they have my money and I guess I'm stuck for better or worse. I'm obviously a little upset they can't follow a lead time and that that seems to be a recurring theme. In my opinion they should be able to get an estimate on when something is going to ship even with current supply chain issues based on their current inventory. They shouldn't be saying 21-28 days if there are possible variables that aren't included in the estimate.

Yeah I agree completely - the wait really sucks. BUT I know it is worth it in the end because of the warranty and the build quality that is very, very high standards.

I have extremely high standards myself. I spent over 2 weeks meticulously building and cable managing the crap out of my previous gaming rig.

I have always wanted an all-water cooled rig with hardline connects everywhere and sick RGB, so I'm willing to wait for a quality build like this.

The supply chain issues is to blame though. I don't blame DS at all for the delays.

I'm with you on always wanting an all liquid cooled rig and the only wanted the Aventum X out of all the system options out there but the wait is frustrating and I differ from you in one aspect because I feel like lead times should consider unforeseen delays to some extent. Especially when you're spending 10+ on just a tower.

There a lot of us Digital Storm customers that have been in your shoes. Some of us several times as repeat customers. To me the wait wasn't as bad as the fear that the shipping gods would be cruel. Thankfully in both shipments of my systems they arrived perfect.

Waiting is a "B", yesterday I spent 8 hours trying to get my new cheap mobile phones activated after they deactivated my old ones. I felt like I was going crazy but good booze and old age allowed me to stay with it till they were fixed. It was bad timing since I did this with a 12 inch snow storm headed into St. Louis.

Your systems will come before you know it and with a little luck they will fire up and be perfect out of the box. This is when it important to take a few pictures and share them with the folks that are still waiting for theirs.

Knowing that the systems are really being delivered everyday to happy customers helps a wait that seems like forever. Notification of a change in expected ship dates feels like a Christmas that got delayed and you were waiting under the tree and your precious gift ain't there!

My only issue is I have all these boxes of monitors and peripherals waiting for a place to go until the computer gets here. I've also vowed not to game until it gets here.

Oh man I will be super upset if something happens during shipping. Freight definitely doesn't insure safety but I'm hoping it works out. My house is in a Historic district also and I don't have off street parking and have to get it up the steps and into the house on a dolly after removing it from the shipping pallet.

Hang in there guys, we're sorry that some of your orders are taking longer than others. There are many factors at play, and honestly a large majority of our orders ship before our estimates on our website (or else we would have revised them, as our forums would be flooded with complaints).

If your order has passed its estimated ship date, and you haven't spoken to me or our team, please feel free to reach out with your order details ([email protected]). Thanks!
