We've personally experienced the potency of Digital Storm gaming rigs, and it looks like the company is now ready to really up the ante when it comes to power and performance. Digital Storm may not as huge a name in the industry as Alienware, but it certainly offers up the best of the best for those who are willing to pay.

The new Black|OPS line of high-performance gaming computers are some of the most wicked machines that the company has ever offered, equipped with Core i7 CPUs, ATI's 5970 GPU and optimized for overclocking. In order to keep things cool while the OC takes place, the systems ship with the Sub-Zero Liquid Cooling System. Unlike many system builders, Digital Storm puts the overclocking power in the hands on the customer, as the TwisterBoost Overclocking process is said to "optimize and overclock the system’s processor, memory, and graphic cards."

There's also a Noise Suppression Package to keep it as quiet as an HTPC, and really, the amount of power here is only limited by the choices you make (and the money you spend) during the build process, but the Extreme configuration has a base price of $3,102.


Digital Storm Unleashes the Ultimate Gaming Experience with Black ¦OPS Gaming PC

Custom gaming PC sets a new benchmark for extreme performance with Intel i7 + ATI, Sub-Zero Liquid Cooling, TwisterBoost Overclocking and Noise Suppression Package

Fremont, Calif. - (February 11, 2010) – Digital Storm, the predominant name in system integration, proudly unveils its most elite line of gaming PCs to date: Black|OPS. With the Black|OPS line of high-performance gaming computers, Digital Storm has elevated the standards to which gamers hold their computers to. By integrating the industry’s best hardware, including the Intel i7 processor and ATI 5970 graphics card, then optimizing and overclocking these components, Digital Storm has created the ultimate gaming PC that delivers unparalleled performance.

At the core of Black|OPS gaming machines is Digital Storm’s Sub-Zero Liquid Cooling System. Comprised of the industry’s best known brands and components, the Sub-Zero Liquid Cooling System effectively removes performance inhibiting heat from the processor, video cards, and even the motherboard’s chipset.

Digital Storm gives its customers the chance to push their Black|OPS system to the extreme with its TwisterBoost Overclocking process. TwisterBoost optimizes and overclocks the system’s processor, memory, and graphic cards. After the TwisterBoost Overclocking process is completed, each machine is subjected to a strict stability test to ensure all components are completely stable. All TwisterBoost Overclocked machines, as is the case with all Digital Storm machines, are backed by the company’s 3 year parts and labor warranty.

Digital Storm has upped the ante by offering its customers an industry leading Noise Suppression Package. Through the use of noise dampening material, tuning of fan speeds, adjusting chassis air-flow and analysing the system’s noise signature, Digital Storm has virtually eliminated the transmission of sound emanating from the PC.

Prior to shipping to the customer, each Digital Storm system undergoes a rigorous 72-Hour Stress-Test. Digital Storm technicians stress-test and benchmark the system via industry standard testing software coupled with a proprietary testing process that detects components which can be prone to future failure.

“With Black|OPS, our engineers designed, integrated and optimized our gaming PCs from the ground up; the result is nothing less than astounding,” commented Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm’s Director of Product Development. “Unlike other gaming PC integrators, who simply cram the latest hardware into chassis, Digital Storm’s engineers select the highest quality components and ensure that every piece works in perfect unison with each other. We truly believe that our Black|OPS systems will redefine the standards that gamers hold their systems to.”

Digital Storm’s Black|OPS systems are currently available for purchase at www.DigitalStormOnline.com. The Extreme configuration has a base price of $3,102 & each Digital Storm system comes with a 3 year parts and labor warranty, including replacement parts, and lifetime customer support.

Wow not a bad lineup. Price wise it may be more than building it yourself, but it also seems cheaper for the same or better than many for a custom built system to.

Another gaming PC on the market and this one stands out with its 3 year minimum warranty (I'm not sure if all enthusiasts will like this). Also they're running a $250 instant discount promotion right now.

In terms of price, the cost is comparable to or slightly higher than OriginPC.

They are either also or actually running a $450 dollar instant coupon when you configure one and hit buy the price drops accordingly.

Price-wise I think Digital Storm systems offer a lot of bang for buck. Their pricing scheme is reasonable and their ratings are top notch. Though MAINGEAR are at a top with a lifetime rating of 9.71/10, Digital Storm has a lifetime rating of 9.09. That's really not bad considering MAINGEAR systems cost upwards of 10 grand while Digital Storm starts at 1500. In terms of customer support they are also top notch, there was this one case where a customer received a damaged system. He sent it back and they ended up sending another system but this time used a WOODEN CRATE! Their service is great and very similar to MAINGEAR but their pricing is just right. The black and white contrast ain't bad either.. Now if only Digital Storm allowed more customization like Origin PC who actually lets you pick your own case and case design.
