Gaming system from Digital Storm

Digital Storm Unleashes New Enix Compact Gaming PC Powered by Sandy Bridge

Although one typically associates high-end gaming PCs with those large, towering, Full ATX cases, filled with fans and all sorts of LEDs, the truth of the matter is that, nowadays, such a system can also be crammed in a much smaller form factor, as Digital Storm's brand-new Enix system proves only too well.

The new gaming system from Digital Storm sports a vertically cooled chassis housing a micro-ATX mobo supporting Sandy Bridge CPUs, that's been rotated at 90 degrees, thus taking advantage of the fact that the heat has a natural tendency to rise.

The mobo's unusual position also offers users direct access to ports at the top of the chassis, where one will also be able to find a hot-swap bay and two USB 3.0 ports.

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 as well, while in the same time the case sports enough space to house two GTX 580 cards at a time.

"Enix's design is a dramatic departure from any system we've ever built in the past. By rethinking conventional PC design the Enix provides our customers with every imaginable advantage over other machines," remarked Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm's director of Product Development.

"Accessibility 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," Mr. Kuruppu added.

Naturally, pricing depends strictly on the configuration of choice, starting at around 1,132 US dollars for the entry-level "Good" model (Intel Core i3 2100, 4GB DDR3 memory, GeForce GT220 GPU and 1TB of storage), while the "Ultimate" model (Intel Core i7 2600K CPU, 8GB DDR3 RAM memory, GeForce GTX 580 GPU, 1TB HDD) will start at around 2,160 US dollars.
