Description

These parts are based on the minimum requirements to run an Oculus Rift. Parts totaled €1021.09 EUR and that includes shipping. I could of got cheaper as I paid a lot in shipping as I was buying the parts in drips and drabs and the parts are a good bit more expensive with the vat for Ireland on top.

If you wanted to build a cheaper min spec for the rift u could take the SSD drive off, led fan, DVD drive and have 8gb memory instead of 16gb and the price would be under the 1000euro mark.

This build started badly when I heard a crunch noise on the cpu and i thought id ruined everything lol. Lucky for me it was the normal noise its supposed to make apparently. The build was definately harder then I had thought. Watching videos is not the same as the real thing.

The Coolmaster n300 i learned is terrible for cable management, hence you can see cables not the best but also I'm an amateur :)

I had to put two planks of wood underneath the computer as a temporary measure cos its on carpet,. I just need to think of something I could put under it that looks half decent. Any suggestions?

Also If anyone wants to know what sites I bought each part and pricing etc gimme a shout.

Great build. I have similar specs to you but I went with team red because it was cheaper.

Make like a box for it to sit on and sand it down and put finish on the wood.

Nice build for sure man, I would recommend going back and working on your cabling though. It looks as though your rear fan cable is going through one of the slots where your side panel anchors in. That is not a good idea because you could cut the cable and your fan will stop working causing your pc to over heat. Also, recalling with give you better airflow, the way you have it now can cause airflow restrictions also causing your components to over heat.

Thanks for the tip, i was kinda unsure about putting the fan cable there when I did it, I better revise the cabling I think. i want this system to last.

it was very awkward though as Well with a lot of the cables on that power supply were very short.
