The Digital Storm Bolt we are reviewing today comes equipped with the Intel Core i7-3770K. This quad-core part features HyperThreading technology and comes clocked at 3.5GHz, though this speed can be easily increased by overclocking.

 

The 3770K processor is slotted into a GIGABYTE GA-Z77N-WIFI. This Mini-ITX motherboard features the Z77 chipset and onboard WiFi, allowing users to connect up to their home network from wherever they set up the Bolt.

 

RAM is provided by Corsair, with the system being equipped with 8GB of DDR3 1600MHz Vengeance RAM. Storage comes in the form of a 120GB Corsair Neutron GTX and a 500GB 7,200 RPM hard disk for mass storage.

 

Graphics are provided by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB video card. While not the most powerful NVIDIA card available, it will certainly manage to play most games without too much issue. The system is powered by a standard 500W 1U rack mount server power supply. Digital Storm is working on higher power PSUs that will be available as future upgrade options.

 

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit is the operating system pre-installed on our system. Windows 8 is also available for installation during the ordering process.

 

The cost for a system like this is $1,599, give or take a few dollars for sales and other discounts.

Configuration is somewhat limited due to the Bolt's small size. During purchase, users can pick from several different CPUs, storage options, and operating systems. Additionally, the Bolt can be equipped with nearly any NVIDIA GPU, including the newly released GEFORCE GTX Titan.
