Description

Planning to use this new build for VR development once my HTC Vive arrives. The case was great for putting this build together - nice and roomy and cable management was a breeze. I'm not overclocking anything right now, but I picked parts to allow me to do so later on, as well as slot in a second GTX 980 Ti for SLI once a single card is no longer enough (probably a couple of years out). The PSU is overkill for the build, but since the HTC Vive also draws power through the USB connection, I wanted to make sure I had plenty of room for that (and the SLI upgrade later). The only part I am not crazy about (looks-wise) is the Noctua CPU cooler - I got it for free and it's a great cooler, but it is fairly ugly and the only item that doesn't fit my black/white color scheme.

Haven't had a chance to run benchmarks or really get to use it yet as I'm still finishing getting all of my drivers updated and software installed.

Very cool indeed. To add a point about the cooler, not only can you get the IPPC Noctua fans that are black, but the rubber dampeners on the edges can be changed. They are called "Chromax" and come in different colours.

What does the 5.25 VR Box connect to? Obviously the USB Ports connect to USB headers, but what about the HDMI cable?

Internal HDMI port in the GPU facing the front of the case.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner! I know it has been 6 months, but if you still want to know, they connect to the extra internal HDMI header on the graphics card.

Ah, thanks for the tip on the fan. May look into that.

I am using both Unity3D and Unreal. Unity is a bit easier to learn and I like the cross-platform build simplicity but as a long time C++ dev, Unreal has benefits as well.
