I recieved my Rig on Thursday 2-5-09. Packaging was flawless nothing loose and she fired right up. I need to pay tribute to the shipping Gods for allowing the package through unharmed.
 
Short and to the point. Service for me has been outstanding. From the build to the constant updates, Digitalstorm needs to be commended. Interaction with sales and technical support has been promt, curtius, and knowledgable. It has been a pleasure to do business with this company. I would not hesitate recommending Digitalstorm.
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
OC came out to be 3.849 with the temperature range 45-57 idle to load while palying games. Only time temps went higher was during stress test above. I am really enjoying this rig!
 
Thank you DigitalStorm,

Monstromo I edited my post to reflect the OC, OC'ed @ 3.8
 
At this time I am playing many games, but my favorite I guess would be Crysis. Only because I am running it max settings. Makes the gaming experience go to another level. But like I said I have been playing many games, most just are not as demanding, but still most enjoyable.
