Digital Storm releases a brutal gaming machine, the Hailstorm II.
Digital Storm has released its new Hailstorm II gaming PC. This customizable PC can be equipped and cooled to some extremely high levels with a price tag to match.
To begin with, the Hailstorm II has room for up to four radiators ranging in size from 140 mm to 480 mm, along with the ability to house two CPUs and up to four graphics cards.
The system's enclosure, the Corsair 900D, is also very flexible, offering room for up to nine 3.5" / 2.5" drives, four optical drives, two power supplies, and 10 expansion slots.
"When we [Digital Storm] set out to redesign Hailstorm we knew it would be challenging to improve on a system capable of handling nearly any high-end configuration an enthusiast could dream up. This meant the search was on for the biggest and baddest chassis available. When we saw the Corsair 900D at CES we knew we had the enclosure we needed to make the original Hailstorm look like a small mid-tower system and not the bad ass high performance system it really was," said Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm's director of product development.
The base model has an Intel Core i7 3770K CPU and a GTX 680 for $2,762, whereas the Ultimate model comes with an Intel Core i7 3970X CPU and three GTX Titans in SLI. This model will cost you a staggering $8,085. There are two other models in between, but buyers can customize all four models to their taste. After being customized, the systems will be stress tested for at least 72 hours to ensure that the cooling and build quality is on par with what you paid for it.
The Hailstorm II is already for sale on Digital Storm's online webshop.
