Hey all, have had this beast of a pc for a few days now. It is my new pride and joy. I thought I'd share some pics with you guys. I'm probably going to end up moving it to a different room...partly because the massive size of this case doesn't really fit on this counter and also because of the window...the sun may heat up my computer for me. Thank you DS for building such an awesome system!

I'm planning on buying an SSD in the next couple months and making both of those drives storage. Wanted all the lc mainly for looks ;). Grabbed the 5970 as well b/c I have been wanting it for a while. Maybe quadfire scaling will get better in the future although I may need a new PSU for that too..not sure how much power this thing is pulling. This is what I ended up getting:

Chassis Model: Digital Storm HailStorm (Black OPS Edition)
Exterior Finish: - Standard Factory Finish
Trim Accents: - Standard Factory Finish
Processor: Intel Core i7 930 2.8GHz (Quad Core)
Motherboard: EVGA X58 Classified 3X SLI (Intel X58 Chipset) (Supports Triple SLI or CrossFire)
System Memory: 6GB DDR3 1600MHz Corsair Dominator with DHX Extreme Edition
Power Supply: 1000W Corsair (Dual/Triple/Quad SLI Compatible)
Expansion Bay: - No Thanks
Hard Drive Set 1: Operating System: 1x (1TB Seagate/Hitachi/Western Digital (7200 RPM) (32MB Cache) (SATA) (Extreme Speed)
Set 1 Raid Options: - No Thanks
Hard Drive Set 2: Multimedia\Data: 1x (1TB Seagate/Hitachi/Western Digital (7200 RPM) (32MB Cache) (SATA) (Extreme Speed)
Hard Drive Set 3: Backup\Misc.: - No Thanks
Optical Drive 1: Blu-Ray Player/DVD Player (Play Blu-Ray and Play DVDs)
Optical Drive 2: DVD±R/RW/CD-R/RW (DVD Writer 22x / CD-Writer 48x)
Internet Access: High Speed Network Port (Supports High-Speed Cable / DSL / Network Connections)
Video Card(s): 1x ATI Radeon HD 5970 2GB
Add-on Card: - No Thanks
Sound Card: Integrated Motherboard Audio
Extreme Cooling: H20: Stage 6: Sub-Zero LCS Dual Loop: CPU & Dual SLI/CrossFire Video Cards & Chipset

Enjoy.

WOW!  Very very clean looking build and color theme.  White toobing looks impressively clean and awesome.  LOL hard to see any wires on this one.  Fantastic man enjoy!
 
Also, post your specs. And I don't think a little sun is gonna heat that rig too much either way no matter where you leave it.  Have fun!

Too bad the rear radiator hanging out the back can't be inside the case.  What is the reason for this?  If you have a single video card then no outside Rad if you have 2 video cards then you get the outer Rad?  Love the white and blue theme.

True, but, there's no space.

We mounted a massive 360 radiator at the top, and by using the chassis tube ports in the rear, we're able to mount another radiator in the back.

It's rather complex, but, we're open to any ideas and suggestions from customers. Thumbs%20Up

Vey nice. I think my setup is close to yours cept I went with black water tubes and uv lights. I was thinking of wraping the water tubes with blue uv spiral. Can't wait, hope mine ships this week, was at stage 5 on Friday.
 
Is your system loud with the fans outside of the case ?

Well I guess that depends on your definition of loud. I think most people would find it kinda loud. The noise never really bothers me since I just tune it out anyway.

About the radiator on the outside, i've seen some people remove the hard drive cage at the bottom, drill some holes, and mount a 240 rad underneath, beside the powersupply. Somethin like this http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2600/3960105505_070a83e175_o.jpg

Wow! That's awesome!

I'm passing the details over to our assembly team to try to get this to work for our customers.

I just back from the guys, they informed me that it would be difficult to implement on a mass scale because we would have to cut the bottom part of the Corsair chassis...

What is that on top of the memory? Memory Fan cooler? What product is that during the computer configuration?

Memory fan cooler. The option is under the memory overclock drop down box.
