Our Customers Fuel Innovation

We’re very lucky and proud to have such an amazing customer base. Our customers push our engineering teams every day with the most innovative and extreme configurations possible. One of the most exciting parts of being a system builder is taking a dream build that a customer wants and turning it into reality. What’s very special about this is that we’re constantly learning and innovating from such projects. This synergy fuels our team to create new options, products, and features that we may have never thought of. We’re able to award our customers with this experience by making sure we build the fastest “record breaking” gaming computers in the market. Who wouldn’t want to have a Formula 1 team fine-tune and tweak your next supercar? I sure would!

To put things into perspective, I’ve included a few of my favorite builds in this article. In all honesty, no matter how awesome they look, these pictures don’t do justice, witnessing these systems in person is an entirely different feeling!

Let’s begin!

This particular build is a special one. Our customer asked us what we could do to build the most powerful and literally ultra-high-end system possible. We did everything from fabricating a custom side panel, using luxurious quick-disconnects in every possible way, a full drainage system for the fluid, and mounting a side panel LCD screen to show temperatures.

Have you ever seen a total of eight GPUs inside a computer? Checkout this setup by one of our customers who decided to go all out with four NVIDIA GTX 590 video cards, each video card contains two GPUs. This system is being used for Folding@Home!

That much power wouldn’t be complete unless it was powered by a whopping 24 CPU threads. Checkout this image of our team stress-testing the system’s dual six-core Intel Xeon processors with Prime95.

Did I mention that we offer sub-zero cooling options? We can take a processor below zero using our Cryo-TEC system. We’re able to pump below -0°c fluid to the processor, unlocking higher overclocks and better temps. We can do all of this without using a massive and bulky phase change cooler which are notorious for making your computer sound like a fridge. Our Cryo-TEC system uses our own in-house thermoelectric cold plate and control system, we’re able to offer great performance without the size and noise of a phase change system.

Here’s a picture of the actual CPU block that touches the processor. It gets so cold that a thick layer of frost forms on it. We got a little creative and carved our logo into the frost, but don’t worry, we insulate and protect the cooler from developing condensation; this was just to show the sheer power of this system. Now only if gaming laptops could get this, that would be awesome.

To finish this article off, I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the great things we get to work on at Digital Storm. If you are looking to buy a system from us, we would love to earn your business, I’m sure our team can build you one hell of a machine!
