Digital Storm is known for beautiful-looking gaming PCs semi-customized but mostly built from off-the-shelf components. In a bid to differentiate itself from other makers, as well as DIY builds, the company plans to move away from standard cases and use only unique build-to-order chassis for all of its systems, including the entry-level Vanquish series. The first of such PCs was demonstrated at CES earlier this month.
The new chassis for Digital Storm’s Vanquish computers is a dual-chamber PC case that can house an ATX motherboard, a custom or all-in-one liquid cooling system with a 360-mm radiator, multiple fans, several storage devices, programmable RGB lighting (which is generally designed into various components like coolers or motherboards), a tempered glass window, and so on. The front panel of the case carries Digital Storm’s logo, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports as well as 3.5-mm audio connectors.
A particularly noteworthy feature of the upcoming Vanquish PCs is a large PSU chamber that can accommodate a power supply of almost any length. This compartment enables Digital Storm or its customers to install a 1000+ W PSU for an ultra-high-end system.
Another interesting capability is built-in hardware monitor that displays temperature and other data about the status of the system.
Digital Storm’s upcoming Vanquish PCs will sustain their entry-level pricing that starts at $699, but will feature an exclusive design and features, a rare event in this price class. In total, the company will offer four versions of the Vanquish later this quarter.

ingwe - Friday, January 18, 2019 - linkOn the one hand, the inside of that has such a clean layout. On the other hand, I can't look at the bright RGB pictures.
kung_lao - Friday, January 18, 2019 - linkAgreed.
Valantar - Saturday, January 19, 2019 - linkAre my eyes fooling me, or is that pump/res/temp monitor thing essentially blocking airflow through the front rad?
PeachNCream - Saturday, January 19, 2019 - linkGiven that these are supposed to be custom built, a customer making an order might request they put that junk someplace else.
MamiyaOtaru - Saturday, January 19, 2019 - linkthe slats on the front for blocking some fan noise while allowing airflow seem like a good idea. But why are the openings pointed at the user? The case is likely to be to the user's right (so the window is visible). If those slats were angled the other way it'd leave less of a direct path for fan noise to the user's ears
