Ok DS was ordered on August 26th and received on September 9th in perfect condtion. The only thing I noted was the Coolermaster V6 GT was slightly crooked so I grabbed it gently with sterile hands and twisted slightly and it straightened right out with no fuss or stress to the CPU.
Packing Job was incredible.  Set up was Simple.  Booted right up no problems.  Speed was just as advertised for my system I couldn’t be happier.  I will buy DS from now on and  my Dad a Vietnam Vet and Gamer is hooked too and will be a new customer for his next rig.

I installed the Sound card after the pictures the sound card was from my other rig and its great no static on popping noises like the Creative brand. 
 
Where are the fan adjustment speeds for the case fans?  are they in the Bios or ?  i would like to bump up the side panel fan as it seems to be getting a little warm there.
 
The GTX is awesome with fan speed at 75 and 3 hours of gaming Left for Dead 2 the GPU only hits 71C.  anything higher than 75 and the thing sounds like a Jet Engine.  Of course as soon as you stop gaming the thing cools down immediatley to 41 something.
 
Gaming is incredible  and the 1TB hard drive boots up completely in a 1:20 minutes.  Game maps load rapidly.
 
Thanks again DS this thing is so awesome.  There was not a spec of dust or any greasy fingerprints on the thing when it arrived.  Stellar Build.  You have a customer for Life and I will reccomend you to all my family and friends.
 
14 days from order to arriving at my Door is just INCREDIBLE !  Awesome

case fan speeds may be in the bios but your fans have to be plugged straight in to your motherboard for that to work, they may have plugged some of the fans straight in to the power supply
when you say its getting warm, what makes you think that exactly?

After several hours of gaming i moved my hand up towards the side case door fan to change my mouse battery and got 3rd degree burns !   ahaha no it was just hot my case is sitting up on a file cabinet with full air flow all around i just thought maybe side panel fan wasnt moving as fast as it could.  And I am getting old mid 40's so i am going through "Mano-Pause" or sympathy Menopause according to the General (Wifey) Whoa

I just asked the team and they informed me there is no low-medium-high switch for the large HAF X side panel fan. You'll need to follow the power wires from the fan to see if they go into the motherboard or the PSU directly. If it's the motherboard, you may look at what specific connector it is and possibly increase the fan speed if it isn't at 100% already. If it's directly connected to the PSU, the fan can't spin any faster.

temps are below normal, the case should really be cold to the touch....
anything besides the video card and the air coming out of the video card should really be cool
 
where is the heat coming from specifically?

You will feel heat coming from the system (video card) which is normal.

My computer would not accept the Internal media card reader per Sarah so I talked to her on the phone while my computer was still in production.  In lieu of the card reader I asked her to have two blue led cathode lights installed instead.  My rig has no internal lights installed at all?  Little disappointed since my rig is so dark inside now.  Guess I need a credit back to my credit card for 10 or 20 bucks.  Other than this small ommission i am still very satisfied, i emailed the management team for a credit and inspection as to what happened.

Bios Fan speeds showed the following:
 
CPU Fan 2,311
Power Fan 2,228
Chassis Fan 748
Aux Fan 1,310
 
Smart Fan Function manual 100%  Aux Fan 100%
 
So it appears all Fans are set at 100% all the time is this correct?  What is the Aux fan?  is that my side panel door fan or?

Aux fan is just a label for one of the headers on the MoBo...Usualy CPU is labeled as CPU and there may be one or two other "Named" headers and Aux is...another header.  Aux = Auxiliary

Check to see if there is a red switch in the (likely) bottom expansion slot on the back of your computer. They hook their cathodes to one to turn them on and off, so yours might just be off.

@SemperFuzz,

(I saw your email and the forums post, so I'm going to respond to both)

I'm sorry about the missing light. The special instructions may not have been passed over properly for them to add the lights after it was already processed. A majority of the time there are no issues, but, when we're talking about hundreds of systems going through, things can get difficult.

Moving forward, we can either issue a refund on the lights, or, we can ship you a set and pay for the shipping. Let me know back via email (management@digitalstormonline.com)

@Dragoonseal, I don't see the switch in any of his PCI slots.

Cheers,
Alex
