Digital Storm, the predominant name in computer system integration and engineering, proudly debuts it’s most innovative and efficient PC design to date - Enix.
The Enix from Digital Storm shatters the status quo by delivering bleeding edge performance while maintaining the minimalistic footprint of modern desktop computers. By disregarding the common wisdom that bigger is better, the Enix’s small profile takes full advantage of the Micro ATX format. Overclocks of 4.7GHz and above are easily achieved thanks to the Enix’s vertically cooled chassis and Intel’s new powerful Sandy Bridge architecture. In addition, the motherboard is rotated 90 degrees taking full advantage of heat’s natural tendency to rise. The Enix can also be customized to fit a dual GTX 580 configuration, giving it the versatility of being an elite gaming machine or a high performance workstation.
The Enix looks like no other desktop computer because it isn’t one; it foregoes the inherited inefficiencies to be born anew in a bold sleek design. At its center is a computing engine capable of delivering the type of staggering performance most users thought wasn’t possible with a modern desktop computer of similar size.
The design of the Enix’s internal structure gives it numerous advantages over conventional desktop computers. The Enix’s 90 degree motherboard rotation offers easy access to ports at the top of the chassis, eliminating the need to reach behind the computer to connect peripherals. Also, located at the top of the Enix is a hot-swap bay and two USB 3.0 ports. The hot-swap bay makes it easy to take your data on the go and the USB 3.0 ports provide blazing fast data transfer speeds. Additionally, the hard-drives in the Enix are all installed on the side of the chassis so that they can be passively cooled, minimizing noise for a silent user experience.
“Enix’s design is a dramatic departure from any system we’ve ever built in the past. By rethinking conventional PC design the Enix provides our customers with every imaginable advantage over other machines,” remarked Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm’s Director of Product Development. “Accessibility to all the components is unparalleled and the vertically designed chassis keeps everything cool and quiet. Couple that with an outrageously overclocked Sandy Bridge chip and you have one of the most efficient and powerful machines on the market.”
