Digital Storm is a custom PC builder that focuses on the very high-end. At CES 2015 they were showing their brand new Aventum 3 system that not only has a custom-build case, but other features you just will not find from custom system builders. Let’s just say we were very impressed!
The Aventum 3 is a custom water-cooled system. The custom case that Digital Storm has made for the system supports a 560 mm radiator on the bottom and a 280 mm radiator on the bottom as well. This is actually the first case ever that will support a 560 mm radiator. Another cool thing is that the fans for the bottom 560 mm radiator are not actually attached to the rad itself, but rather the case.
In addition to those two radiators there is also a 420 mm top radiator as well. Getting a custom system is great, but what if you need to remove a component from the system or change something out? Typically you would have to break down the entire custom cooling loop etc. Well not with the Aventum 3! Digital Storm has installed quick disconnects on the backside of the motherboard tray. These will easily allow you to remove a component without having to break down the entire water cooling loop.
In addition to just having quick disconnects for the water cooling the Aventum has its own embedded power delivery system. So mounted in the case are power connections for the 24pin ATX, 8pin EPS and all of your PCI-Express connectors. So if you need to remove a component you won’t have mess up the awesome wiring on the case.
On top of that all of the hard drive bays are hot-swappable. So again if you need to add a drive or replace one it is as simple as pulling it out and putting a new one in. As far as customization with the case and system you will be able to choose the color of the case as well as the color of the coolant used in the liquid cooling system.
When it comes to components you are able to choose pretty much anything you want and configure it all on the Digital Storm website. This system is designed for the high-end though so it will start at $2999 and can go all the way up to 7-8K. Digital Storm expects this system to be on the market in Spring of this year.
