i ordered my first digital storm 8 years ago, can't even rember which one it is. But today it is still going strong, i did, talking with my husband yesterday i told him how my pc is 8 years old now, and i can't believe it has held up that long previous pc from other places lasted 1 to 3 years at best.
Talked about mayb making a few upgrades, he said just go back to digital storm and order yourself a new one as my Christmas present for you.. :) So i did, i just finished placing an order for the Lumos lvl 3. upgraded the memory and mobo. I cant wait until it processes and gets through all of it's stages and gets here, hoping it holds up as well as my last one

Misy,

I just upgraded my 12 year old Digital Storm system. Only had to replace 2 fans as repairs in all these years. I am looking forward to my new one arriving some day.

At least we will be new & fresh and be able to run Windows 11. I hope Win 11 is worth the grief people have to go through to get it to run on systems more than a few years old.

Not sure if i am going to upgrade to 11 as soon as it finally gets here or wait a little bit, i hear good and bad, but maybe the bugs will worked out by the time we get our new rigs

Congratulations and welcome back. Awesome
I would, if budget allows, call them and change the Storage Set 1 to a NVM Express drive. The DS one is a SATA drive and slower. The m.2 is just a form factor (size).
You will boot up much faster.

Enjoy.

Keep us posted as to how it goes.

I just noticed that you also have the Corsair Commander PRO but Cooler Master fans. I don't think they work together ( someone might clarify here, hint hint ) and might be worth checking when and if you call DS.

these were the only other fans they had as an option, stock or these, one day I will put Corsair in, after my husband gets over his stroke of what I have just spent, so I didn't get to do all the upgrades I wanted.. I will already have the switch at any rate, I know nothing of building or most parts) I wanted the rtx 3080 or 3090 but the added price he turned white lol, I also wanted to liquid cool it, for the aesthetics mostly, and where I live it gets very humid hot in the summers , I don't overclock, and to liquid cool I would have had to upgrade the gpu but that is unaffordable right now. I like the way the hard lines look in the cases. this is also something I have never had is liquid cooling so maybe by my next one, and a lot of learning the how to change and when to change the coolant.

if it is incompatible I had thought they would call me, so I thank you for the advice and will give them a phone call to ask.
I really do appreciate any/ all advise , I am just starting to learn the innards of a pc.

I'm not positive about this, but I think the Corsair Commander Pro should work with most fans. For example, I'm using mine with Noctua fans. It works great.

I don't know much about the Cooler Master fans that DS is using. It says they are remote controlled. If the remote can be used to adjust fan speed, then I could see how there might be a conflict. For example, which device would control the speed: The remote, or the Commander Pro? I'm not sure.

However, if the remote is only used for changing the RGB colors, then there shouldn't be a problem.

Either way, I'm sure DS will alert you if there is an incompatibility.

I love following threads like this to eventually see the thrill people get when they get the latest & greatest Digital Storm beast.

I know I am excited about my new one coming some day.
