Yes, here you go, you can see the Digital Storm logo on the inside of the chassis and the chipset waterblock:

I never wanted to make love to a tower before i saw this one.. Hope the wife doesn't leave me... lol That is beautiful. Nvidias case looks sweet and i've heard that the video card setup has cool air blowing right into the pipes of the fermis with this too.

I take it that there is some serious driver problems at this point, hence why it locked up?

I guess the million dollar question is: Buy this in March or buy ATI's 5870 now.
I'm cobbling together a rig on the other side of the Atlantic, and I don't want to get a bad case of buyer's remorse come march.

Any opinions guys?

Hmm...Ideally I would like to, but right now I'm in a sad state of affairs and need a new pc pronto. My rig (the one I'm using) is a Dell Dimension 2400 bought in 2002 with a broken front bezel and a missing side panel, 2.4ghz p4, 1gb RAM, and Intel graphics last game it was able to run was GTA: San Andreas, all settings dialed to minimum 800x600 max 35fps.

DST4ME if this was your only rig then you'd be pretty desperate by now.

I think I'm going to pray for fermi to be hot slow buggy and overpriced, this way I won't feel to bad about the 5870 I'm probably gonna get.

I also agree on some of that, I hope they ae so overpriced that when it comes out, they will have plenty in stock for me to grab Angry

but if you wait till april, you can have usb3.0, sata 3.0, and get to decide between fermi and ati.

but if I was super desperate, I guess I would get a super cheap card now or if I can, I would use what is in the current pc so that I can choose my gpus when fermi comes out.

Looks like the Thermaltake Element v Nvidia Edition
It's Supposedly fremi certified. I don't know what that means unless its because fermi is so hot it will be cooked to death in any chassis with less than a bazillion fans.

www.guru3d.com/news/thermaltake-element-v-nvidia-edition/

Here's some reading materials, though I never was a thermaltake fan this chassis looks quite good, especially with those dual roof fans.

looks like a very cheap HAF knockoff..
Fermi certified has to deal with the length of the card.. means nothing really, just marketing gimmicks like a lot of cases.

And why does it look cheap? like all tech nerds you seem to form opinions based on former prejudice, and brand loyalty.

I can't see how quality wise it's cheap. I can only formulate that conclusion if I had one myself or read several reviews in which the reviewer states it's cheap. Looking at a picture of is not enough.

Try determining which car drives the best while looking solely at their pictures.

plastic. enough said. lol. There are lots of cases 1/2 that price that are 10x the case, IMHO.
Don't formulate your conclusion on others reviews/opinions. Go out and try it for your self.
I have a very bad habit of buying all the newest crap and trying it out, then selling it for a fraction of the cost to friends/family..
This is what I have found out. Some brands do consistently produce winners while others losers, but this rule is never 100% true.
The general design can be construed as a massive failure, going off of previous cases that have similar designs that I have used, The HAF for one. For dust control, noise control, and water cooling capabilities, plus any case with tool less design looses a ton of respect with me. If you never upgrade, or change out failed parts, and like loose fitting noisy cases then I guess tool less is kinda, maybe OK, but for all other applications it is a bad idea to me.
I like em bolted, screwed together. tight and exact. not plastic clips, with tons of air space between fitments, and it also gives the fit and finish a ton more room for errors, because nothing fits exact. Tool less not my cup of tea.. Smile
