In LAS VEGAS on January 6, 2014, Digital Storm today unveiled at CES 2014 the Bolt II, a small form factor (SFF) and hybrid Steam Machine gaming PC. This is the first liquid cooled Steam Machine and will feature both Steam OS and Windows.

Digital Storm’s second generation SFF system has a sleek refined look, increased accessibility and advanced thermal design. By doubling it’s cooling power, the Bolt II separates itself from other SFF and Steam Machine systems by focusing instead on delivering the best graphics possible and refusing to compromise on performance. Digital Storm is not looking to compete with console pricing but is taking aim at the high end of the market. It offers discerning Consumers a PC capable of playing any title on their new 4K display. The Bolt II defies the cookie-cutter mold of SFF systems by giving performance that bypasses most full-size desktop PCs. It has expertly engineered airflow design and large perforated ventilation areas over the graphics card, cooling system, and power supply. It also includes one in the top panel which transfer excess heat out of the system while pulling cold air in. It’s best-in-class 240mm radiator cools any overclocked processor, which drastically reduces system temperature making it the most thermally efficient SFF computer available.

Unhappy with simply offering the best performing SFF cooling systems, Digital Storm included their proprietary HydroLux control board, providing users with full command of the system’s cooling capabilities. The HydroLux monitors the Bolt II’s temperature in real time striking the perfect balance between thermals and noise. It also can create a unique custom look by controlling the LED lighting inside and shifting the color spectrum to fit the user’s preference. Digital Storm Has eliminated SFF upgradeability concerns with a removable compartment system that provides easy access to key components. The graphics card, storage drives, optical drive, and cooling system can all be removed and serviced with minimal hassle, making the Bolt II more upgradeable than any other SFF computer on the market.

Bolt will be available later this month starting $ 1,899 at http://www.digitalstormonline.com/bolt-ii.asp
