Digital Storm Releases Hailstorm II Gaming Rig

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.

    $8000 for a gaming computer? Who's gonna buy that?

    Three GTX Titans in SLI??!!

    Well there's 3000 grand right there! Still it would be nice, ** sigh **

    Wow. Nice for the 3 people in the world who can afford it.

    And in only a year, maybe two, it's going to be out of date tech.
    And In only three years, maybe 4, it's will only be a mid-range gaming system.
    Plus you lose out on the fun of picking out the parts and building your own system.

    All for only $8k. Not that someone that can afford $8k for a gaming computer cares about any of that.

    The more offensive price is the base model with a 3770K and 680 for $2,762.

    I like Halestorm better:

    Seriously though, this is just a showpiece. They may sell a few to some people with money to burn but the configuration is well beyond diminishing returns for games.

    With their add here I am sure they would sell more of their watered down version and maybe a few hundred of these, and to ask who would buy these rigs? execs who want to buy their teenage children love buy buying them the top of the line gaming rig, that means non of you guy would but most 99% who don't even read this will

    If you need to ask the price, then you can't afford it.

    3 GTX Titans in SLi don't bring any more returns compared to 2 in SLI in terms of FPS. So 2 grands plus another grand for 3930K, mobo, ram, and I am set. Add EKWB stuff 4 grands max and voila! Someone has to tell these guys to take down their prices. But I guess a Saudi Prince won't mind buying 10 of them!
