Okay, first of all, I was comparing Digital Storm to Alienware PCs. I personally own a DSO system myself with a sleek Silverstone Raven RV01 Case, and looking at the case design for Alienware's Aurora, I see complete bs. This thing steals concepts from the Raven RV01, seriously it DOES.

Here's a video of some guy admiring his new Aurora, and I'll use it to demonstrate the uncanny similarity between this and the Raven.

Here's a video of the Silverstone Raven.

Now, I want you to pay close attention to the fact that the front has a concealed 5.25 bay door, which is originally featured on the Raven RV01. Additionally, notice the front facet, which also shows up on the Raven RV01. Even more, notice the top hidden USB ports, also featured on the Raven RV01. The way all these parts operate on the Alienware is opposite the direction that they function on the Raven however, though it is STILL a friggin stolen design concept.

WTF.

very few companies make their own stuff, very few, most private label another product, in one way or another.

 
 
But that RAM fan has to be one of the funiest things I have seen in a long time... a fan the size of a quarter, a 40mm Smile to cool the RAM   about the 6:17 mark.. wholy crap that is some funny stuff.
that guy is so clueless it hurts

As a previous Alienware owner I can say im glad Ive moved on from the hype surrounding their systems, when i bought mine in jan of 06, i really had no clue of other companies that do this. I will say that ive only had to put a new power supply in it and thats all. So Ive had some good luck, but when it came time for a new system I checked their site and I wasn't impressed at all about what they offered. So I shopped around and found DS. And haven't looked back since.

I mean just compare configs between DS and AW. Its not even close. The only thing I can tell people looking for a gaming machine is do your research!

I know...I don't get some shoppers these days, heh. I mean, he says that he went for 12 GB RAM because he wanted "power and performance". Um, I multitask like CRAZY, and my RAM usage hasnt even gone over 4GB before. And since when did your RAM capacity and speed make a substantial difference in performance? CPUs with high but stable OC's is how you really ramp up performance.

Well.. now that he's already spent his money and there's nothing that can be done about it anymore, sure.

Remember all that hype with Main Gear's Shift "Supercomputer"?

Shift


Raven RV01


Can I please ask why the heck does the Shift's internal design look EXACTLY IDENTICAL to that of the Raven?!

All the curves are there, the only difference is that main gear didnt bother to attach the last tool-less drive bay. The other tool less drive bays are identical, all six hot swap 3.5" bays are identical, the design is identical, and the airflow and mobo orientation are identical. EVERYTHING is identical.

It looks literally as if they ripped the stealth fighteresque  plastic exterior of the Raven and just slapped on a new cover.

WTF?! Sleepy
