First time using Digital Storm but have friends who have bought from them and good reviews.

Anyway, like so many, I just ordered it Monday morning, the 17th and by that afternoon went in to Stage 1.

It is NOT here yet! :-)

Can you hear the slow sound of minutes ticking off? I can, it's deafening!

Ok, well, as you can see by my original post I ordered and went in to Stage 1 Aug. 17th.

Now going in to the 5th week and still sitting in Stage 1.

I don't think the "Estimated Ship Date" will be met.

Did you order a Velox?

I think the Lynx and Lumos get pumped out quicker it seems from what I can gather in my reading in the forum.

Ok, so I decided to contact DS to see if they could give me info on the delay.

Emailed Stellar directly. His email confirmed a delay in a part, which happen to be the Velox case. They are expecting a shipment next week.

Conversing with Stellar put my mind at ease. The info was very much appreciated. He went out of his way to help me out! Thx again Stellar and DS.

Side note, the 2080 Supers are very hard to find, so I opted to pay the difference between that card and the new RTX 3080... whoohoo!

So now I might see movement on my build very soon.

Thx Draves, after reading and viewing YT vids., I just hope DS actually has any 3080s to build systems with. They sold out immediately everywhere and I mean everywhere. Yikes, restocks to come in a couple of weeks, most likely mid-Oct. before a good supply, according to sources. Fingers crossed!

I ordered mine on 9/17 and went to Stage 3 late 9/18. Mine really flew through the first three stages. I am also getting the RTX 3080. I hope yours flies through the rest of the process super fast!
Just ordered my first custom PC!

JimBob's professionally designed and concise time graph for a build progress does not include week 6, 7 or 8.

I just started my 8th week and I think it is something along the lines of However, good news, today I went to Stage 7, Packaging. It won't be long now before my new rig is on a slow wagon train making it's way across the wild west on it's way to Texas, possibly a stop off at Donner's Pass.

Congrats austyn123.

Well, unfortunately Estes was used as the shipping company. I use to run for FedEx and do L.A. to Dallas Fort Worth, Tx., which is my area, in 24 hrs.

Estes on the other hand must be shipping by mule train. PC was shipped late Tuesday and made it to Riverside CA. early Wed., where it sat all day awaiting departure. Thursday morning it had made it to Las Vegas, NV., again......... where it sat all day awaiting departure. This morning, it made it to Phoenix, AZ., where I am sure it will wait all day to depart. Are you kidding me?! Heck DS, I would pay more to have my PC shipped by a company that doesn't mess around!

hmm thanks for brining this to my attention. I know when i purchased it said fedex ground shipping and I live all the way over in Pennsylvania so hoping it is fedex and not Estes. Hell I cant say i've even heard of them either haha. Hopefully it all works out man. Either way sounds like the wait is almost over man.! Can you feel the excitement haha. I sure as hell can! Make sure to post some pics of your rig!

Yeah, mine said FedEx also, but coming by Estes.
Anyway, it did NOT sit in Phoenix all day. By early afternoon it had "departed for Fort Worth". Hopefully it is a team driver situation.
