Digital Storm ODE Level 4 System ReviewHow do you make the experience of buying from a boutique system builder easier than it already is? If you're Digital Storm, you answer that question by offering a line of pre-configured machines that are fully loaded to meet your budget and ready to ship in 72 hours. Not only do you save the time and energy required to build your own system from scratch, you also skip the exercise in picking out each individual component and then crossing your fingers hoping you've made solid selections.

Digital Storm opted to send us their top-of-the-line Level 4 configuration outfitted with an overclocked Intel Core i7 3930K processor cooled by a Corsair H100 liquid CPU cooler, 16GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 memory, a 120GB Corsair Force GT solid state drive (flanked by a 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 drive for storage chores), two AMD Radeon HD 7970 graphics cards sitting pretty in Crossfire, a Blu-ray reader, and other odds and ends wrapped in an attractive Corsair Graphite Series 600T white mid-tower chassis with LED lighting...

Wicked nice system. and an extra $400 ish dollars is well worth it for the labor of assembly and the fact that you get lifetime phone support for the system. Digital storm has some winners here. Now it would be nice to see how the "Good" system fares.

It nice but price performance ratio of build is slightly high. Just changing models aka their i7 to the ivy bridge, then a using 680gtx cards in crossfire. Getting a second 1terabyte harddrive and doing raid confiq along. With a couple other just brand selections. End result you save about 500 buck from their confiq 400 from them building and have about 20% faster overall system 50% in some areas. And you also save about 100watts on power consumption which adds up. I know every system I add into my home configuration does about $20-$30 a month increase on power bill.

that is free shipping and no tax on majority products as well and before bargain hunting which can save you another $100-200

I specced out a much cheaper pc on ironsidecomputers.com . Digital storm has way too high prices although they have an awesome reputation. Ironside is a new company but I found only positive revews and my pc is exactly what I ordered.
