Following a server attack, the forum and support system have been taken offline. Both systems were originally setup around 2006 and as the Digital Northwest team have been focusing on new projects, we have been unable to find the time to upgrade these platforms. We feel that this certainly contributed to the server vulnerability and as a result have decided not to put them back online. We stopped working with OrigenAE at the end of 2008 and with our new ventures we simply can not continue to support this brand. We hope that our loyal customers can understand the our need to do this.
3 years ago the support forum was shut down after running for almost 1 year. During that time a great deal of useful user posts were collected and in the spirit of keeping that information alive as well as hopefully restoring an open community for users to share their experience, we have decided to restore the forum.
The full post explaining the return of the forum can be found here
The developers of the OrigenAE brand and S/T Series products would like to explain the differences between the .com and .co.uk sites and reasons behind it. They have created a knowledge base section which will hopefully clarify this.

We often get asked 'what cpu cooler do you recommend for your chassis?', the answer for the S10V is most definitely C10, but its just at apt in any low profile chassis.For more information on our C10 please visit our product pages
