Post your VR setup here :D

Time to do some time wasting for the long 8kX wait

I know you guys are hiding alot of cool setups and VR equipment out there, so let’s see em :smiley:
I’ll start, here’s my (Oldschool Powemac G5 mod)

i7-3770K @ 4.6Ghz
32GB RAM
Inno3D GTX 1080Ti
A bunchload of SSD’s 2 of them M.2 in Pci-E adapters
Just added a Pci-E USB3 card with 2A outputs, 8A in total (for the new 8kX) :grin:
All H20 cooled in a full custom loop
34" Asus ROG Swift PG348Q 100Hz G-Sync “Pancake screen”
Logitech G27 with H-Shifter and Pedals
Pimax 5K+
Valve Index Controllers
2 Valve LH’s
Lighthouses and PSU for Pimax 5K+ is attached to a Philips Hue Smartplug, that I can turn ON/OFF from a “smart tile” in the StartMenu.

Just need to make a frame for the G27 for the chair as well.

My crate stands open to the elements and has a tangle of wires hanging out of it… Just need the handcrank and chicken perch expansions. :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve got a decent setup, but it’s not particularly cool (so no pics):

i7-8700K (6 cores / 12 threads) 3.7 GHz, 32 GB DDR4 3600 ram
MSI RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio (factory overclocked)
3 TB SSDs + 7 TB hard drives for backup
ASUS MG28UQ 28" 4K FreeSync gaming monitor
1 Base station
8K, soon to be replaced with an 8KX
Logitech G25 steering wheel, shifter, and pedals
Logitech X52 HOTAS with MonsterTech quick release chair mounts (which cost significantly more than the HOTAS!): https://www.monstertech.de/en/product-category/flight-en/chair/

I really like the MonsterTech mounts. They also have table mounts and sim rigs of high quality (German) which are very sturdy.

x52pro hotas+proflight pedals+passenr seat out of a Golf Mk2 with shakers mounted for Elite Dangerous

I built a system around an A4-SFX case to have a portable, reasonably fast and upgradable system. These have the size of an external GPU but can house the entire PC (https://www.dan-cases.com)

Hardware has to be specifically chosen to keep noise under control and to fit. E.g. the GPU can only be 2 slots (2.5 slots for the new version) wide, and only smaller CPU coolers (or quite small AIOs) fit.
Running a 65W Ryzen 1700 CPU and a reference design, slightly undervolted GTX 1080 TI.
The system is unhearable in idle and not disturbing under load.

Nice, I have the same case but have a 2080ti in it. The power you can pack in there is pretty amazing for the size

That is a sweet case! With Corsair’s new 750w sfx psu can really sandwich a lot of power.

Why HT off ?? :slightly_smiling_face:
2020202020

Because HT won’t do a lot for gaming atm. And to further overclock it.

How big is your tradeoff for disabling 6HT cores? how much more can you OC it ? Just curious :slightly_smiling_face:

Hmm i once had bsod’s now tried again with HT on, and it seems fine @5 GHz :thinking:

OC’ing is an art :grinning: so many variables to tweak to get it running just right. Even undervolting sometimes help attain a faster speed, even with proper H2O cooling
I love the challenge :smile: no such thing as running stock settings :grin:
