What You Need To Know

  • The Digital Storm Black Ops Enix measures about a 1.5' high and less than a foot long.
  • The gaming PC is only 9" thick which gives it a taller than normal design.
  • Most of the connections and the swappable hard drive are on the top, which should make it easier to get to.
  • The sides of the Enix pop off with no screwing required, so you can add hard drives on one side and reach the rest of the computer on the other.
  • For the most part, there is enough room inside the computer to add extra parts.
  • The nice thing about the Digital Storm is having a tall case to fit a really huge video card.
  • The RAM and other components are hard to reach because of the diagonal fan.
  • The hard drives may require some cabling since they're on the other side of the diving wall.
  • Compared to the Falcon Northwest Fragbox and Serenity by Puget Systems, the Black Ops Enix's gaming benchmarks scored lower than we expected, especially since it has a lot of really fast components.
  • Games will still look amazing on the computer and we had no trouble at all maxing out the settings and playing for hours.
  • Our productivity benchmarks scored much higher on the Enix than the Serenity or Fragbox.
