Had my Digital Storm system for six months now and could not be more pleased. I love it. Due to budgetary constraints (no job at the moment) mine is basic rig.
 
Digital Storm Desktop 167935

System Configuration:
Chassis Model: Special Deal Hot Seller - HAF 922
Processor: Intel Core i5 750 2.66GHz (Quad Core)
Motherboard: EVGA P55 LE Edition (Intel P55 Chipset)

Power Supply: 700W Digital Storm Certified (Dual SLI Compatible) (Silent Edition Recommended)
Hard Drive Set 1: Operating System: 1x (500GB Western Digital (16MB Cache) (7200 RPM) (SATA)

I had shopped for months and the reviews on this forum and Digital Storm's very informative website convinced me. From the time I placed my order I was treated like their best customer. The computer arrived in excellent condition and has performed flawlessly from the minute I turned it on. It's used for general computing as much as gaming and the speed is amazing.

I started my career as a computer tech and have had many in my home since 1980. The build quality of this one is the best I have seen.
 

 
I hope to add components as my budget allows. So far the only upgrade is a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus with 2 120mm fans. It was easy to install in this chassis and works great. 
I highly reccomend Digital Storm. This is an excellent computer and they are a pleasure to deal with.

Hi Tom, thanks for sharing your system with us. You really get a clean install with DS and the HAF cast. I wonder how you got over clocked but no fan upgrade. I guess the i5 runs cooler than the i7.

The case came with a 200mm side fan. I temporarily removed it at Christmastime to show off the internals to guests. It's back on.

Shortly after receiving my new machine I installed a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus with an additional Cooler Master 120mm blue LED fan. It looks good and cools great. However the original Intel cooler worked fine, I imagine due to all the fans and the excellent air flow through the case.
