As a Digital Storm ODE Level 3 owner, do NOT be afraid of getting the Bolt with the Titan card. I had an issue with memory in my machine about 4 months after I got it. They brag up and down about their customer service, and they should. They literally fell over themselves trying to make me happy, and DID! I want to also mention... these killer machines are NOT over priced whatsoever. I spec'd mine out item for item through Newegg and yes, DS was about $150 higher and that included shipping. So for $150 more you get an overclocked chip, stellar build quality, warranted for three years + killer customer service.

If I didn't already have a sweet machine, I'd get this in a heartbeat.

Would absolutely love to have the Bolt's case. I wish they sold the case and power supply by itself!
Maybe I can bribe them into it... ;)

I'm not a fan of Digital Storms customizing process. I'm sure it keeps costs down but it loses it's custom feel.

Damn! It's already been given the MaximumPC Kick Ass Award? A verdict 9! Hmmmm. How so? Inquiring minds want to know.

Maximum PC reviewed the Bolt. This is the same machine, now optionally upgraded with a Titan graphics card.

No thunderbolt on the bolt?

Blasphemy!

Looks like a good deal from a commercial builder. The only pan I would have is the low storage from the SSD and the wattage of the power supply. Nvidia's own spec sheet states that the GTX Titan GPU requires a minimum of 600W.

I noticed too about the PSU, though one thing working in Digital Storm's favor is the model they're using is 80 Plus Gold Certified, whereas Nvidia is likely taking into account lower quality models.

In any event, I've reached out to Digital Storm for comment and will update if I hear back.

EDIT

Received word from Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm's Director of Product Development. Here's what he had to say:

"Before we decided to launch a TITAN edition of our Bolt gaming PC, we ran extensive stress-tests and benchmarks to ensure our customers would not run into any power supply wattage issues. The Bolt's power supply was able to pass every intensive stress-test we threw at it along with the GTX TITAN and it still had plenty of headroom."

Thanks, Paul for investigating. It sounds like the PSU they're using should do the job fine. I've bought builds from a subbed builder that Digital Storm had in the past, "Ballistic" and the machine was solid as a rock. Best quality I've ever seen at their price points. When it comes to custom builders, I always recommend Digital Storm.
