The Digital Storm Bolt II is a midsize system that fits some powerful components into a very sleek, sophisticated case – one that looks as good standing upright as it does on its side, which is an important feature for a computer that might end up on your home theater setup. At $3,481 (as tested), the Bolt II’s price tag might raise some eyebrows, but the price strikes us as unsurprising for this rig, which is a luxury PC, after all. Given the prices we’ve seen in luxury gaming PCs of late, the Bolt II certainly commands a premium, but it's not out of line with expectations, especially... Read more...
Until such time as Valve gets its ducks in a row, those of us who want a console-like Steam experience are sticking with DIY PCs, Big Picture mode and a third-party controller. Digital Storm, however, thinks it has a killer system for your living room Big Picture setup (or for use as your main gaming rig if you’re a mouse and keyboard type) in the newly updated Bolt II. The Bolt II is a midsize system that fits some powerful components into a very sleek, sophisticated case – one that looks as good standing upright as it does on its side, which is an important feature...

"4K" has been quite a strong buzzword this past year, and things are only bound to heat up as displays capable of handling the resolution continue to drop in price. But let's face it: While the extra pixels are nice in principle, the amount of GPU horsepower required to deliver smooth gameplay at that resolution is enormous. Consider the fact that 4K, with its 3840x2160 resolution, has four times the number of pixels as 1080p, and over two times the number of pixels as 1440p. Yup - we're dealing with something that requires some serious grunt. On the NVIDIA side, that's where a GPU like the GeForce... Read more...
You’re going to want a 4K monitor for this: NVIDIA is shouldering its way further into the gaming PC market with its Battlebox program in which it partners with boutique system builders to develop scorchingly powerful gaming systems. The Battlebox systems are built to play all the newest blockbuster games at high resolutions and with all the settings jacked to the proverbial 11. NVIDIA’s graphics cards will be front and center, of course, and all the systems will feature GeForce GTX 780 or Titan cards 2- or 3-way SLI configurations. NVIDIA’s numerous graphics technologies are... Read more...
We dug the Digital Storm Bolt, with its attractive angles and custom case design, and the Digital Storm Aventum II, announced today, looks to be a larger and higher-end version of the SFF gaming rig. The black and red color scheme as well as some design cues were definitely brought up from the Bolt, including what looks like the ability to remove the top and side panels as a unit to expose an inner metal skeleton. There’s also custom, hand-crafted, nickel-plated copper piping for the liquid cooling system, which is further comprised of a Thermal Control Module, ample air intakes, 420mm radiators,...

How do you make the experience of buying from a boutique system builder easier than it already is?

Do you like personalized items? Of course you do. Everybody does, whether it’s a personal monogram or your business’ logo. Digital Storm just launched a new called service called LaserMark, which allows you to get anything you want--text or picture--laser engraved on your desktop, workstation, or notebook. Check out the video below to see how the engravings look. (Hint: It’s pretty sweet!) The video says that you can “say anything”, so apparently there aren’t any restrictions on profanity, vulgarity, or disparaging remarks about others. (Be honest, those are... Read more...
Digital Storm has a new cooling system out; built largely on its Sub-Zero Liquid Chilled system, it’s called Cryo-TEC Cooling. With the new system, the company expanded on the technology it used with the Sub-Zero Liquid Chilled system in a few ways. First, the whole package is smaller. Second, it’s a lot cheaper--up to $500 less than the Sub-Zero system. Third, the new system uses direct contact heat dissipation technology, which essentially puts the thermo-electric cold plate directly on the CPU. Although gamers, builders, and modders will no doubt enjoy what Cryo-TEC Cooling has to... Read more...
Desktops? Digital Storm's got 'em by the truckload. The company's newest, however, is a real eye-catcher. It's the ODE, a so-called "perfect gaming PC," according to the company. It's a highly configurable pre-built gaming rig, with a crazy liquid cooled 5.0GHz extreme overclocked Intel i7 2600K processor, dual SLI configuration of two NVIDIA GTX 570’s, and an Intel solid state drive. The company's offering four basic setups, with the lower-end model starting at $1499. The case itself is reason to consider, but the specs make it a no-brainer if you've got the cash laying around (and you don't... Read more...
It's been a busy spring for OEMs, and Digital Storm is no exception. Earlier this year, Intel was forced to suspend shipments of Sandy Bridge's accompanying Cougar Point chipset while it fixed a design flaw. This, in turn, left both system OEMs and retail motherboard vendors no choice but to suspend/delay their own Sandy Bridge-based products. Now the market is awash with product refreshes, making it more difficult than ever for any one product to stand out from the crowd. Digital Storm's new Enix appears to pull it off nicely, however, at a (relatively) cheap price compared to many of the boutique... Read more...

As so many other pre-fab PC makers have, Digital Storm is also unleashing a number of new / refreshed rigs this week showcasing NVIDIA's blazing fast new GeForce GTX 590 series GPU. In fact, the company's offering up two of these cards in SLI for those with the cash to spend, and there's also a Core i7-2600K processor if you're really looking to max out. Digital Storm’s revamped Black OPS and Special OPS gaming PC lines can now support 3D Vision Surround at an impressive 5760x1080 resolution on a single GeForce GTX 590 graphic card thanks to the three dual-link DVI ports. They're available... Read more...
