Digital Storm Unveils Bolt–World’s Thinnest Most Powerful PC

  Fremont, Calif. – (October 23, 2012) – Digital Storm, the predominant name in computer system integration and engineering, proudly introduces its slimmest custom designed gaming computer ever – Bolt. With Bolt, Digital Storm gives gamers exactly what they’ve craved: a powerful and affordable gaming PC without the need of a bulky desktop tower. When conceptualizing the Bolt, Digital Storm engineers found no chassis on the market that met their design criteria, so they designed their own brand new chassis from the ground up. Every aspect of the Bolt from: cooling, performance, and upgradability were ingeniously designed to the highest possible standards. The Bolt boasts a slim yet aggressive profile that is only 3.6” wide and 14” tall. The Bolt’s thin chassis is designed to effectively dissipate heat allowing it to house the latest and fastest components on the market, bucking the trend of sacrificing performance for a smaller footprint. No other thin form factor tower houses as much power as Bolt because no other system can handle the type of bleeding edge hardware and overclocking that Bolt does. Bolt’s high performance CPU cooling solution, with five copper heat pipes, unlocks even more gaming performance with processor overclocks of up to 4.6 GHz with Intel’s i7 3770K CPU.

Combo Review: AMD “Vishera” FX-8350 & ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z ROG

We have a combo review for you today. We are bringing you a full review of AMD's new FX-8350 series CPU, a.k.a. the "Vishera." In order to do that, we wanted just the right motherboard, and Asus happens to have the new Crosshair V Formula-Z ROG ready to step in. This gives us a chance to test the mettle of two top of the line products at once. Will it be a match made in heaven? We shall soon see. AMD first released its FX series chips last year with the FX "Bulldozer" series. Some of us were not too happy with the chip, because the performance did not live up to expectations. Despite (and because of) that hiccup, we are very excited to see what their "new tech" can bring to the table. Today we are going to look at the new FX-8350 series chip, code-named "Vishera," to see what it can do. AMD has reported that the new line of FX series chips will bring a 15% increase in performance from the previous series. We look forward to putting this claim to the test. The new line of FX-8350 series chip is made to compete with its rival, the Intel Core i5 3570k. Our intention is to show you how it stacks up against just that, and who is still wearing the performance crown at the end.
