I have had the pure joy of using my new Apollo system for around 24 hours now.  I don't know how I gamed before I got this system!  I have VERY little to say about it that is bad and every thing else is good!

*ahem*
~Bad:  While there are MANY bays for expansion the way they zip tied the power cables means that to install any of your old HDD/DVD whatever, you have to undo there really wonderful and neat job of fixing them all in place.  The other bit is that there aren't very many SATA/RAID connections, so if you want more then the few it comes with (like using all 6 HDD bays plus all the SSD bays) you are going to need a way to increase your SATA/RAID.

~Good:  EVERYTHING ELSE!  I have been playing games that I was playing on my old computer on the lowest settings. (Skyrim and Borderlands 2 and the Pre-Sequel mostly)  They barely ran on my old machine.  Now Borderlands the Pre-Sequel is running 150 FPS while taking super high quality videos!  So far all of my old games work, and I have had no issue with playing everything on the ultimate settings!

Do I recommend Digital Storm?  OMG YES!  You guys did a awesome job!  My machine got to me just 3 days after placing the order!  (Granted I'm not far from where they are. Just a bit north of them in California.)                    My new Apollo


The old next to the new.
