Digital Storm Unveils Aventum With Custom Cryo-TEC Cooling

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 33 comments

If you're looking a a liquid cooled system packing Nvidia's Kepler GPUs, here it is.

Custom PC maker Digital Storm today unveiled its latest high-end offering, the Aventum. Digital Storm says that this system was designed by its own engineers, inside and out, and uses its new Cryo-TEC cooling system that cools liquid to below zero degrees centigrade.

Digital Storm boasts that Aventum's chassis features a proprietary thermal exhaust chamber, intelligent five thermal zone regulation and exclusive software that controls 13 customizable fans. The Cryo-TEC liquid cooling system utilizes direct contact heat dissipation to remove heat from the CPU and then processes that liquid through 3 massive 420mm heat exchange radiators.

The engineers appear to be particularly proud of the air flow design of the thermal exhaust chamber, as it is a product of months of R&D using thermal imaging cameras. We've put in a request to Digital Storm for access to its thermal images, and we'll report back once we have them.

    There is no need to ask, because the answer is Yes.

    fracture....I'd build it myself and save a few grand.

    I dare you to custome build the exact same thing. And I do mean everything, Case, Cryo-tec cooling , craftsmanship....then I'd believe you.

    ClasszeroAh ha ha ha, an people complain about the apple tax.

    There is no comparison. You don't have to buy this to have a Windows PC, even a powerful one for that matter. This is boutique building that can be avoided.
    You, however, have to buy an Apple system to have a MacOS PC, that means you can not avoid the Apple tax.
    It's all a matter of options, like having options or not having options.
    Besides, this looks way better than any Apple computer you can think of...

    They won't just sell the cooling since its custom made and engineered in their own company. You wouldn't find anything close to this on newegg or other sites unless your willing to dish out about 1000$ to 2000$ to get a similar one but not even remotely close to what they use for cooling system.

    I'd like to buy the case itself.

    Here's the deal... If I was a millionaire, I would buy one of these. But not for the typical reasons... I would buy one so I can take it apart and find out what they used for cooling/case. Then I'd see how much I can save (per PC) by building three more for my millionaire ultimate gaming room. I like building gaming rigs, and even if I was rich I'd still build them myself.

    Should've used this RAM instead

    PSU inflation is really becoming a problem. How can these people justify giving a SINGLE 680 a 1050W Corsair PSU? Maybe it's the cooling system. More research needed.

    If I ever win the lottery, Digital Storm can expect a call from me.

    4k+ PC and you get a "DVD Writer"...

    I would get one if i were rich too because not a whole lot of companies even have that Cyro-chill technology that allows processors to go below -0 Celsius.

    This certainly has my curiosity piqued. Not sure why they need rads with a TEC. Ambient temp is gonna be higher than the coolant and air the fans blow will essentially heat it up. That and I'd like to see how they deal with the problem of condensation from below freezing temps.

    Just went shopping on newegg, and for price of a "Level 1", you can get same Mobo/CPU/ram, a bigger PSU, same SSD, a blu-ray instead of crappy dvd drive, corsair 800D fulltower case and THREE 580 GTX 3GB models w/ watercooling block.

    Throw in a $300-$400 watercooling setup to cool all the GPUs and CPU and you got yourself a completely watercooled system that would perform at the same speeds of a "Digital storm lvl 4", for about half the price lol.

    Well, if you got the money and can't do the work yourself, sweet systems I guess lol.
