Where are the Digital Storm Bolt type cases?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Every time I come across a case like the Bolt, I get so excited. I see many comments on it praising such case. But you know what the most frequent response is? Can I buy just the case??

The answer has unfortunately been NO.

When will a company step up and build something like that? Silverstone and their Raven RVZ01 is getting there, but not quite.

Corsair, Coolermaster, Thermaltake, Fractal, ect...If you're reading this, consider building something like the bolt. Especially with the efficiency of some of the current tech and what's to come. Soon, we'll literally be able to stuff our components in our office desk and it'll still stay well within their max temp.

Digital Storm Bolt II
Revolt
Alienware X51

I'm sure there are others and the X51 isn't the best example. My point is, the Storm nails it and the revolt isn't far behind.

The days of the behemoth RIG are at their end. The Console sized PC is on the rise. With Steam's OS, the drive to put gaming PC's in the living room and the fact that the X1/PS4 are underwhelming........isn't now a good time to offer such an option?

Seconded! The Bolt 2 is a gorgeous case. It's the only ITX case that would make me consider ditching my Node (and love that thing). But I'm not buying an overpriced pre-built just to get it.

As you said, Silverstones RVZ01 gets close but misses the mark. I can't believe DS doesn't sell the case separately. With the boom in ITX's popularity, and the official Steam Machines launch around the corner, there's definitely a market for it.

Agreed. I'd buy a standalone case tomorrow if the option was available. From a business standpoint it would eat into their actual sales. Perhaps after SteamOS is official and the Steam Machines have gained traction we will see a standalone case from DS.

Agreed. The responses I've gotten from them though makes it seem like they don't really want to, though.

I would pay a considerable amount for one of these.

Cheap and plasticky. Much larger. No WC support. Terrible aesthetics.

Wrong. The CSAZ103 provides for 240mm water cooling radiators, is almost entirely made of metal, and is LxWxH almost exactly the same size as the Bolt II (a bit larger than the Bolt I). Aesthetics are to each their own though biggrin.gif

Looks great, I've been following it for a while. Sadly the project is on hold, though.
