With the launch of Intel's Core i7 3930K six-core Sandy Bridge-E processor, companies we haven't heard from in awhile are coming out of the woodwork to announce products built around or for Intel's X79 chipset. One of the those companies is Digital Storm, a boutique system builder that now offers a pre-configured Level 4 gaming PC that's about as no-compromise as we've ever seen in a pre-assembled system.
"ODE Level 4 is the next evolution in our quest to give customers the optimal gaming experience, without the hassle and expense of having to individually select each component," commented Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm's Director of Product Development. "With the addition of the X79 chipset, our engineers have configured a system that offers bleeding edge technology that delivers unparalleled performance per dollar."
The part selection needs no hype or marketing spin; these components pretty much speak for themselves. This is what an ODE Level 4 gaming PC is made of:
Corsair Graphite Series 600T white computer case
Intel Core i7 3930K processor (3.2GHz, six cores)
Asus Sabertooth X79 motherboard
16GB of DDR3-1600 Corsair Vengeance Series memory
120GB Corsair Force GT Series SATA 6Gbps SSD
1TB hard drive (7200 RPM, 32MB cache)
Three Nvidia GeForce GTX 570 videocards configured in tri-SLI
Creative Labs X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional soundcard
Asetek liquid CPU cooler
Interal lighting system
Corsair 1050W Pro Silver power supply
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Talk about a sick configuration, and if all that weren't enough, Digital Storm says it will overclock the processor to anywhere from 4.5GHz to 4.8GHz before it ships. Wicked. So is the price tag -- a pre-configured Level 4 machine will set you back $3,599.
