You may remember the Digital Storm Black Ops that we gave away during Christmas. That thing was a beast; how could it get better? Well, as you know, technology always gets better. And now, we have the entirely new Enix; which will raise the GHz ceiling a bit higher.
Using the latest from Intel, the Sandy Bridge chipset, Digital Storm was able to, with among other methods, overclock the Core i7 2600k to 4.7GHz. Those other methods being, of course, great thermal management; the motherboard is rotated 90 degrees off theÂ theoryÂ that heat does, in fact, rise.
$ 1,132 is the units base price and with that you get a Core i3-2100, 4GB DDR3-1600 memory, a 1TB HDD, and an NVIDIA 1GB GeForce GT 220. All units come with a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium. Get the high-end rig and look to spend over $ 2k for the right to say 4.7GHz is the speed you operate. It’s a pretty neat looking design and sure to be almost overkill for every game out there for years to come. Why not?
Fremont, Calif. – (January 24, 2011)
â€“ Digital Storm, the predominant name in computer system integration and engineering, proudly debuts itâ€™s most innovative and efficient PC design to date – Enix.
The Enix from Digital Storm shatters the status quo by delivering bleeding edge performance while maintaining the minimalistic footprint of modern desktop computers. By disregarding the common wisdom that bigger is better, the Enixâ€™s small profile takes full advantage of the Micro ATX format. Overclocks of 4.7GHz and above are easily achieved thanks to the Enixâ€™s vertically cooled chassis and Intelâ€™s new powerful Sandy Bridge architecture. In addition, the motherboard is rotated 90 degrees taking full advantage of heatâ€™s natural tendency to rise. The Enix can also be customized to fit a dual GTX 580 configuration, giving it the versatility of being an elite gaming machine or a high performance workstation.
The Enix looks like no other desktop computer because it isnâ€™t one; it foregoes the inherited inefficiencies to be born anew in a bold sleek design. At its center is a computing engine capable of delivering the type of staggering performance most users thought wasnâ€™t possible with a modern desktop computer of similar size.
The design of the Enixâ€™s internal structure gives it numerous advantages over conventional desktop computers. The Enixâ€™s 90 degree motherboard rotation offers easy access to ports at the top of the chassis, eliminating the need to reach behind thecomputer to connect peripherals. Also, located at the top of the Enix is a hot-swap bay and two USB 3.0 ports. The hot-swap bay makes it easy to take your data on the go and the USB 3.0 ports provide blazing fast data transfer speeds. Additionally, the hard-drives in the Enix are all installed on the side of the chassis so that they can be passively cooled, minimizing noise for a silent user experience.
â€œEnixâ€™s design is a dramatic departure from any system weâ€™ve ever built in the past. By rethinking conventional PC design the Enix provides our customers with every imaginable advantage over other machines,â€ remarked Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Stormâ€™s Director of Product Development. â€œAccessibility to all the components is unparalleled and the vertically designed chassis keeps everything cool and quiet. Couple that with an outrageously overclocked Sandy Bridge chip and you have one of the most efficient and powerful machines on the market.â€
Digital Stormâ€™s Enix is available for purchase at http://www.digitalstormonline.com/compblackops.asp with a base configuration starting at $ 1,132.
