Digital Storm Goes Wild on Custom Workstations, Adds Liquid Cooling and Overclocking

Paul Lilly

A line of workstations for enthusiasts

You are what you are, and Digital Storm is a boutique system builder focused on power users and hardcore gaming rigs. That doesn't mean Digital Storm isn't capable of piecing together a system for work, just don't expect its penchant for liquid cooling and overclocking to suddenly disappear. Hence it should come as no surprise that both are touted features of Digital Storm's new Pro line of custom workstations.

Each Pro workstation comes with Digital Storm's proprietary HydroLux cooling system. It's a self-contained liquid cooler with a fan and fully customizable control software that can automatically adjust to temperature fluctuations in real-time.

Customers can choose from four different models and starting price points: Ode Pro ($2.442), Slade Pro ($2,474), Hailstorm II Pro ($5,295), and Aventum II Pro ($5,984). Within each model are different baseline configurations. For example, the Aventum II Pro starts at $5,984, though the highest end configuration runs $15,007 and includes dual 24-core Xeon E5-2697 V2 processors, 64GB of DDR3-1866 memory, NVIDIA Quadro K400 graphics, 240GB Corsair Neutron GTX SSD, 4TB 7200 RPM hard drive, 1,200W PSU, Blu-ray burner, and Windows 7 Professional.

Overclocking is available for those that want it. That may not be the best idea for mission critical applications, though Digital Storm says each system undergoes a rigorous 72 hour stress test and multi-point QA inspection before being sent out to the customers.

Digital Storm's Pro line workstations are available now .
