Hiii everyone!

So, I got back home from my deployment on the 18th, and one of the first things I did was boot up my system! haha
First I would love to comment on the tank of a crate it came in. If you have a pricey investment with DSO, I'd highly recommend this crate!
The system was better than I could have ever dreamed! Everything worked right out of the crate, I haven't had the chance to do any benchmarks or see what it can handle, but I did take the time to take a few photos!

Here are the specs!


System Configuration:
Chassis Model: Special Deal Hot Seller - Black OPS HailStorm Sub-Zero Liquid Chilled Edition

Processor: Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition 980X 3.33GHz (Six-Core) (Extreme Performance)
Motherboard: ASUS Rampage III Extreme (Intel X58 Chipset) (Features USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gb/s)
System Memory: 6GB DDR3 2000MHz GTX-8 Digital Storm Certified Extreme Performance (Highly Recommended)
Power Supply: 1200W Digital Storm Certified (Dual/Triple/Quad SLI Compatible) (Silent Edition Highly Recommended)
Hard Drive Set 1: Operating System: 2x (600GB Western Digital VelociRaptor (10K RPM) (32MB Cache) (Model: WD6000HLHX)
Set 1 Raid Options: Configure HDD Set 1 to a Raid 0 Config - Stripe Performance (Requires Two HDDs)
Optical Drive 1: Blu-Ray & DVD Writer/Reader (Burn + Play Blu-Ray & DVDs) (12x BD-R) (Lite-On iHBS112)
Internet Access: Wireless-USB N 300Mbps (Supports 802.11n/g/b)
Video Card(s): 2x SLI Dual (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 1.5GB (Includes PhysX Technology)
Add-on Card: EVGA 2 Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Host Card (PCI-E Slot)

Extreme Cooling: Sub-Zero CPU Liquid Chilled System & Chipset + Dual Video Cards Liquid Cooling
H20 Tube Color: Blue Tubing with High-Performance Fluid (UV Lighting Reactive)
Chassis Airflow: Upgrade Chassis With LED Performance Fans (Blue) (Up to 6 Fans)
Internal Lighting: Internal Chassis Lighting System (UV) (Creates Glowing Effect for H20 Tubes)
Windows OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (64-Bit Edition)

















I personal THANK YOU, to DSO! =]
Definitely made me a customer for life. The system runs better then I could have ever imagined and the sheer strength of it is just wonderful. You can tell a lot of time and energy went into it and the wiring is simply wonderful and organized. I have it hooked up to three 23 inch monitors and it plays games like Call of Duty just wonderfully! Across all three screens and its just beautiful!
Again, I can't ever really begin to explain how great of a job you guys did, and thanks! =]

And here is a picture of me getting back home from my second tour!
God Bless! =]

Awesome! You'll need to re-size the pictures to a width of about 750px to make them fit properly.
