Digital Storm launches Enix PC with vertical layout

By on January 24, 2011, 7:09 PM
Digital Storm has launched a new desktop offering that utilizes a vertical design with improved cooling and a smaller footprint. The Enix rotates its mATX motherboard 90-degrees from the norm, so the "rear" I/O panel is situated on top of the chassis. This orientation takes advantage of heat's natural tendency to rise, and we've seen a similar layout in cases such as Silverstone's Raven 2 Evolution.

The Enix is available in four adjustable configurations with pricing starting at $1,132, which gets you a dual-core 3.10GHz Core i3-2100 Sandy Bridge processor, Asus' P8P67-M motherboard, 4GB of DDR3 1600MHz RAM, an Nvidia GeForce GT 220 1GB, a 1TB Hitachi or Seagate-branded HDD, a DVD burner, a 750W "Digital Storm Certified" PSU, and a free factory CPU overclock of up to 3.9GHz.

The max default configuration is costs $2,160 with a Core i7-2600K, an Asus P8P67-M Pro, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black, and a GTX 580 1.5GB. All of the systems have an optional CPU overclock of up to 5.2GHz for an extra $99, along with GPU, RAM and OS tweaks.

The company recommends outfitting the Enix with liquid cooling if you select a 4.7-5.2GHz OC, but all systems are put through a 72-hour stress-test to ensure stability before shipping. It's also worth noting that all of Digital Storm's gaming desktops are currently 10% off.

Doesn't a popular Japanese-base game company already have the trademark to "Enix" (as in Square-Enix)? Hm...

Dude! This is the new Silverstone FT03, AKA the trash bin.

All well and good but they forgot dusts natural tendancy to fall down into all your connectors.

Enix's max default configuration is quite good for the money. If I were to order this config for my personal use, I'd tweak it a bit by upping the storage to a 2TB WD Caviar Black and increasing the memory to 16 GB since I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

gts220 for 1200 bucks come on it should at least have a gts250... gts220 is like four year old technology rebadged not to mention 3.9ghz overclock on the processor is gonna bottleneck the **** out of that thing.
