First thing I will say is the system looks awesome when you power it up.
The shipping was not a problem for the computer since DSO did a very nice job packing the system, but when it arrived i checked all connections and hardware to make sure it was all good and in doing so i found one of the graphics cards was loose. but that was a simply fix :).
First power up went very smoothly and fast with the ssd drive.
The computer is extremely fast at playing games on very high graphics. multitasking is very easy with this computer since it is so fast. Also video editing and making large size videos is done with ease thanks to 16gb ram and the oc'ed 6 core processor.

Overall I am extremely pleased with my system and I recommend Digital Storm to all my friends for there next computer.

Very nice congrats. How are the noise levels on that system? All those 120mm fans must be having a party in there

The noise levels are not to bad considering all the 120's. The only time its really loud is on start up and when ive been on a game for more than 3 hours on max graphics then its a little louder but not too bad :)

Hi Reddevil, thanks for your report. You have a nice system. I like that white case.

Were the side fans hooked up with you removed the side cover?

Thanks for the information. They use to leave them unconnected and I am glad to see they have changed their procedure.
