Ok Brass Tax $4,410.00

Ok “The Beast” is breathtaking.  Yes, I said it I named my new computer the Beast, because it is.  First, my build time is not typical, and believe me the delay between stage 5 and stage 6 was excruciating, but I would have it no other way.

 

Digital Strom takes the time to make sure the computer is stable, and exactly what you order no matter what it takes.  My long delay time was due to two things, First I order the 2000 MHz Ram and this took time to make sure this memory worked properly with my other settings and over clocking. Second, Thanksgiving, damn holidays.

 

Here are the benchmarks provide by DS after stage 6, I do not know how to do the cool ones that people take pictures of and post, I don’t think I have the software for that:

Processor Speed GHz: 4.1

CPU Multiplier: 23

Voltage CPU VCore: 1.4375

VDroop Control: Yes

i7 - BCLK MHz: 183

i7 - Voltage QPI\DRAM:

i7 - Voltage QPI\PLL:

i7 - Voltage CPU VTT: 250

i7 - Voltage IOH Vcore:

i7 - Voltage ICH Vcore:

i7 - Voltage IOH/ICH I/O:

i7 - PWM Frequency:

780i/790i - Memory Clock Mode:

780i/790i - CPU FSB MHz:

780i/790i - Voltage FSB:

780i/790i - Voltage SPP:

780i/790i - Voltage MCP:

 

Overclocked Video Card Settings

 

Core MHz: 720

Memory MHz: 934

Shader MHz: 1440

 

In my computer is shows 4.2 Ghz, yes that’s right they overclocked a i950 3.06 Ghz to 4.2 Ghz.  I played BC2, Black ops, and Crysis maxed out for about 6 hr straight, and the CPU never got above 39 C !

I never know how amazing the games are visually until this beast of a machine powered them out.  I am sure this computer will last a long time, and when it dies I will be right back here to get another one. 

My computer is on the side of my desk can’t really see it so the look did not matter to me, but this rig is awesome, I almost want to put a mirror on the wall next to it so I can look over and see it J.

I got the memory fans, probable does not have much effect on performance but they look cool.

 

So if you are reading this far and did not just skip down to see the pictures lets recap.  Get ready for the wait of the build, regardless it if takes 5 days to build or 30, once you push the order button, the only thing you think about is getting the computer and playing on it.  Second, you get what you ordered and more, it is well worth it, best computer I have ever owned.  Third, Once my wife finds out how much I paid for it and sees how big it is (out of town all weekend. Has not seen it) I will be outside in the dog house with a card board box as my computer desk.

There is a lot of room in this case, and both radiators are in the case, and not on the outside, this is a major plus.

I agree, I hated the idea of having a Radiator hanging off the back of my computer, Im glad DSO fixed that issue.

Well if you want to have 2 x triple rad with that case yoyu have no choice but to put on outside, I got a bracket from koolance that expands and collapses, and to be honest I have no problem with the triple rad being outside, but it is great to see they found a place to stick the double read inside, it is a very nice build

I'm loving the blue theme Awesome

In person, does the UV lighting system actually give much "glow" to the tubes?
