So I've been waiting to build my Oculus/Vive Virtual Reality rig until now, close to launch. I've had the GTX 970 in my old PC, and will just use it for now until the next-gen Pascal video cards come out (since it meets the VR specs for now just fine).
I know what you're thinking, this guy color-themed this out. But nope, actually the best parts just happened to be the same color schemes.
I will say I LOVE this Phanteks EVOLV case! What a joy to put this together, and it made wire management a no-brainer. It's not cheap, but well worth the price. It's so roomy, without being as big as a full tower case (which is too big for my taste).
So one concern I had was whether the Corsair H110 i GTX cooler would fit into the case without being too close to the RAM, as another user said he thought they were. But I am happy to report that with the TridentZ's height it was not a problem at all.
I've got a small overclock going at 4.5Ghz, will go higher if I feel the need to later. And the 950 Pro M.2 drive is INSANE-fast, I can copy a 1GB file to/from itself and it's instant, as in the copy screen doesn't even appear...crazy.
Oculus Rift pre-orders open tomorrow...see you in the future! █-)
