    Digital Storm 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.

    I know it is a king of personnel taste, but it's ugly, don´t like at all.

    If i had the space my chassis would literally be an entire server room - at the very least it needs to be big enough to have wheels on it. ;)

    Looks great, PC gaming needs more of this as living friendly PC's are what many people are after, and huge bulky cases are what put most people off.

    I personally prefer a bigger case, but i have the space for it.

    People who don't like desktops and towers buy laptops, tablets and consoles. But if I were to live in an old abandoned phone booth, I'd like it.

    I hate my pc case, it weighs a bloody ton, sure it's silent, but I wouldn't mind a smaller (and lighter) case like this (if it didn't cost mad amounts of money).

    Not that i'll ever spend money on my desktop again, high end laptops from now on in.

    I concur, and i would really like the server room from diehard 4, with the turbines helping to cool the beast... naturally.

    Well they certainly made good use of the space. I wonder what temps are like after a few hours of gaming?

    I'll pass. I'm happier with a BIGGER case, the bigger the better.

    On the bright side, more room for customizing, adding, removing & hiding cables!

    And what about air flow/temps? Surely on a much larger case temps will be noticably better since there is more room as well as more space to add extra fans...

    I've tried very small cases for medium powered systems and they overheat too easily unless you have fans running loud.
    You have to be pretty anal about keeping fans and meshes clean otherwise they become unstable.

    I gave up building small case systems a while back due to excessive problems.
    Perhaps this has a small enough power footprint to not be so bad, as long as it routes hot air from the CPU straight out of the case.
    But I cant see it if it can use power gfx cards even if they feed hot air out of the case.
    The heat from the back of the card can be enough to cause issues - unless noisy cooling is employed.
    I'll keep my eye open for opinions from users.

    Don't think this is about what people on here think, it's about attracting new PC gamers.

    My only issue is fan size, but even with that, as this might be noisy, but i would hazard a guess it will still be quieter than a over-stressed console
