Very nice system, and an excellent case choice.. I think with that cool iCue 4000X case you get their newer hinged doors which is always friendly to get into.

My one thought here on your selections... If I were going with that X299 board and investing in the top of line i9-10980XE Extreme Edition (18-Core) processor with a top power TDP of 165 w, known to be a kinda warm CPU... I would definitely want it paired with the very best full water cooling HydroluxPro system protecting that Extreme processor and more safely maxing it's potential performance.   Would be a better match in my humble opinion.

Yeah I actually called their sales team and brought that to their attention, and the salesperson informed me that if they found any issues with thermal temperatures or overheating than they would give me options at that time during testing....   If they find it to be enough of an issue than I would definitely be fine with paying at least $40 more for a better CPU liquid cooler if they present me with the option! :D

Well as it turns out I was notified today that I would have had to wait 2 to 3 more weeks for the 18 core processor to arrive so I decided to lose 4 cores regarding the processor and went with a 10940X Processor instead... It all worked out though because they took the $40 out of the money refunded to me for the Processor change to upgrade the CPU cooler to a 3 fan Vortex Liquid CPU Cooler! :D :D

Anyone know whats going on???? I was told today that Digital Storm is not able to use the processor I have switched to in my system until after October 20th?? I just looked up the official release date of my Processor and it says it was officially released in October 2019 so right now I am VERY confused as to what's going on here....

Hey guys. Just curious to see how long it took to get your machines. I ordered one 2 weeks ago, just excited, but I know it's a bad time of the year to expect something to come in quick. How long did it take to receive your machines? Did they stay on top of updating you via you account or emails? And how do you like the machine since you've had them. Thanks all. Mike!

It took around a month to receive my custom built PC from Digital Storms, and along the way they were actually very good about updating me throughout the build process...   Only issues that came up were presented to me as waiting longer for the LUMOS case to come in to complete the build which was totally worth the wait, and another big issue that came up was either waiting longer for the processor I requested to come in so my machine could be built or switching to a 14 core processor so my PC could be built faster....   Ultimately I ended up going with the 14 Core processor and along with the Lumos case choice I do not regret my decision at all!   My PC is also mostly air cooled by multiple fans although the CPU cooler I also chose to pay an additional $40 to have that upgraded to a better liquid CPU cooler...   My PC easily maxes out on the graphics on any game I throw at it, and I went with the 3090 TI 24 Gigabyte VRAM graphics card.   I have a very strong feeling my dream PC I ultimately received will probably last for years to come so to me the wait and setbacks along with choices presented to me to solve those setbacks through email as they occurred were more than worth it in the end! :D :D

Thanks for the reply! I'm just excited. I'm mainly going to use this machine for music production, so I'm just antsy to get producing again. Thanks again.
