    Posted: 31 May 2016 at 7:43pm
So I Want to buy an Apollo at Level 3.
I'm NOT buying the graphics card because I already Purchased the Nvidia GTX 1080 Founders edition Seperatly.

So what does this mean for my system on the whole stress testing part that Digital Strorm does?
Will there be a stress test since I'm NOT buying a graphics card?

Any answers will help!

I'm not quite sure how it works with the HEDT processor without an iGPU or a discrete GPU. They may just put in a test unit and remove it before shipping. I had ordered my computer without storage (there was no option back then to not have a GPU...I had done the same thing and purchased a GPU separately but needed to spec a minimum GPU) and I think they mounted a temperary drive to test it out before shipping.

Phraxis:

1) Do you intend to SEND them your NVidia GTX 1080 Founders Edition ... for Digital Storm to install into your computer?  And to use during "stress testing?"

2)  Will Digital Storm install it in your computer if you send it to them?

3) Have you asked Digital Storm what effect this might have on their warranty?  If it is not their card, can they still warranty the rest of the computer? 

I do not work for Digital Storm, so I do not know.  Seems to me that you should know the answer to these...

No I am NOT going to send them my GPU, And yes I will install the GPU myself, pretty easy.

My only question is if they will still test it with like a substitute gpu of their own?

They will not cover the warranty of any parts they do not supply. I am currently building a PC sending in some parts of my own.

If they provide a test GPU there should be a fee for the effort.
