Digital Storm, the predominant name in computer system integration and engineering, proudly announces that the Editors of Popular Science Magazine have given Aventum a “Best of What’s New” award in the Hardware category.
The Aventum is the first system to feature Digital Storm’s patent pending chassis and CES Innovations Award-winning Cryo-TEC cooling system. Designed by Digital Storm engineers from the inside out, Aventum’s chassis boasts a proprietary thermal exhaust chamber, intelligent 5 thermal zone regulation and exclusive Aventum software that controls 13 customizable fans to effectively dissipate performance inhibiting heat. Together with the Cryo-TEC liquid cooling system that chills liquid below 0ºC, Digital Storm has designed the industry’s first truly custom high-performance PC.
Every aspect of Aventum’s chassis has been scrutinized during months of R&D by Digital Storm engineers who utilized thermal imaging cameras to perfect the Aventum’s air flow design. Starting with the patent pending thermal exhaust chamber, Digital Storm has ensured that performance diminishing heat is contained and dispersed so it doesn’t recirculate through the system. The Cryo-TEC liquid cooling system utilizes direct contact heat dissipation to remove heat from the CPU and then processes that liquid through 3 massive 420mm heat exchange radiators.
Enthusiasts and creative professionals will delight in the extraordinary level of automated and self-initiated system control. Digital Storm has integrated automated regulation of five thermal zones and their corresponding fans, all of which are monitored by individual temperature probes. With Digital Storm’s exclusive Aventum software, users can fine-tune 13 chassis fans, monitor and regulate thermal zones, and personalize chassis LED colors all within Microsoft Windows via exclusive Digital Storm software. Aventum’s critical system performance information and personalized systems specs can be displayed on an LCD screen located on the side panel.
“To have Aventum recognized as a breakthrough innovation by a prestigious publication, such as Popular Science, is a tremendous honor,” said Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm’s Director of Product Development. “Our goal from day one was to design a truly custom system unlike any other. Our engineers devised new heat dissipation systems that have never been attempted and the result was a truly remarkable dream machine that always delivers optimal performance for gamers, hardware enthusiasts and creative professionals.”
“For 25 years, Popular Science has honored the innovations that surprise and amaze us − those that make a positive impact on our world today and challenge our view of whatʼs possible in the future,” said Jacob Ward, Editor-in-Chief of Popular Science. “The Best of Whatʼs New Award is the magazineʼs top honor, and the 100 winners − chosen from among thousands of entrants − each a revolution in its field!”
