===================

This is what I order. I had a few issues with the computer. The memory crap out and motherboard as well when the wire for the pump came off.

After three weeks, they fix my computer replacing the defective parts. Unfortunately one ram went bad after I tried to run it. I'm currently running 8 gigs. I do plan to upgrade the RAM to Corsair Dominator GT 12gig 2000Mhz DDR3 ram once I get my tax refund. As well as another GTX 580 and i7 980x.

So far I overclock the processor to 3910ghz. I also modified the fans I place two 120mm Aerocool Shark Fans for a push and pull method and 140mm Shark fan on the rear.

Crysis setting is Max out and that just with one GTX 580. All the games I've played so far is smoother. Recording videos using fraps is smooth and runs at 30 fps. Unlike the Phenom II 955 rig I had which drop down to 1-15 fps when i record a video.

Hah, those Aeroshark fans impressed me too from the start. Has a little whine to it, but nothing annoying, and the air it puts out is pretty incredible. I actually like the whine to it, hehe, it makes my case sound like the whine of a jet engine (Low volume, pitch resembles it) if you listen closely, perfectly accompanies my RV01's stealth jet inspiration.

Digital storm hands down is the best place to buy a computer from. You very rarely find a company that offers this level of customer service. In about a month ill be buying my second computer from them.
