OK, before I Show you the photos let me just say. I ordered a Gaming PC from DSO without consulting anyone on forums and without talking to a single customer representative. So pretty much went to website put together a build and waited lol LOL.  Yes would have done it a little different if I had to do it all over again. That Being Said.


I could care less about 3dmark scores or stressing my system.
 

Comes Down To One Thing. I Paid For A Gaming Machine and OMG
I Got So Much More.
 
Does This Beast Do What They Said It Would ?
 
You bet your ass it does !!!!!!!
 
12 sec boot   (after fixed boot priority)
 
Call Of Duty Black Ops  1900 by 1200,  8AA, rest Maxed 
set at 133.33 getting 143.
 
Metro 2033 haha chewed it up spit it out. Still Hungry !
 
Quiet beyond belief. I mean seriously, I kinda wanted some noise.
 
Not one single issue with this machine, not one.
 
Now on to that free game [STAR TREK ONLINE]. I wouldnt insult my baby by installing that. Might as well get an nintendo 64 emulator.
 
Thanks DSO for my Blue Goddess Love and Thank You To everyone in forums. you guys have been great .

I apologize now for what im about to do to my fellow gamer's in Black Ops FFA.
 
Have a Great Day All. 
 
If your even debating buying a system from Digital Storm Online. Stop debating and order the damn thing already. Or just keep whining and losing. LOL
 
 
Even If You Win, All you've accomplished is beating the Meat !!

on the fan question, if your temps are good, then leave it as is.  But, from the pics it looks like the fan in the rear is exhausting? If so, to make temps a little bit better, reverse that fan to intake, and reverse the upper fan to exhaust. It won't make a big difference, but a couple degrees. Big%20Smile
Enjoy!!

Goggles are from COD4  Prestige edition night vision goggles and yes they work lol.

The car is from COD Black Ops prestige edition, Love the camera on car and screen on controller.
 

But the machine is what counts. Still not a single issue.
Well besides it being ultra quiet.
Still out performing my expectations.

No It doesnt matter but get color its cheap enough.
My system is very quiet with 2 big blue LED FANS on it.
Not to be confused with the F.A.N.s Im getting on Steam
Daily{yes Ive posted the screenshots} accusing me of cheating
or hacking haha. Damn this PC is Fast..
Like McDonalds Im Lovin It and Im Lovin This PC.
Old or not 7.7 out of 7.9 isnt to shabby.
 
 
 
 
Wont be around much so I will leave you with this.
 
 
My machine has not had one single issue sinced the day it was turned on.
Quality build on this one. They took their time.
Performance has been pushed and the machine delivered.
Very Quiet.. Reading the post about GPU, Rad, and LED Noise.
Glad Im not a experiencing any of that.
 
 
*The F.A.N. Maker II* is Born:
 
 
 
A special Thanks,
Thank You DSO
Thank You The Builder "Shes a Beast"
Thank You Alex "This is in advance for the future favor"
Thank you All You "DSO FanBoys"   L.M.A.O.

How do you like the blue lighting, I went with red due to my last system being blue but it was like a white/blue and far to bright for me.
