Description

I built this machine specifically for the Oculus Rift. This is my second build. I feel I should have gone smaller, as I wanted something I could pack and have it take up little room. But I also wanted to show off the inside. The CORSAIR 250D was almost perfect but I felt it was a little large. I really liked the COOLER MASTER 130, but I wouldn't have been able to see the inside through a window. The THERMALTAKE CORE V1 was the perfect medium.

 I went overkill on it but I don't mind. Everything fit pretty well. Some of the issues I had was the SILVERSTONE TD03-E 92.5 CFM LIQUID CPU COOLER did fit but there is not place to screw it. (Thats what she said). Right now its just sitting on top of the cluster of cables and that is the only thing securing it. I will use velcro to secure it to the case. I aslo cannot use both fans together unless I buy another connector or something. Right now all I have installed is the back fan and the Case fan pretty much acts as the front radiator fan. The only used parts were the PSU, SSD, and HDD. I pretty much cannibalized my old rig.  I also had problems booting it which was an easy fix. Computer stores were going to charge me around $100 for them to fix it. It was super easy.

The case did not really come with any dust filters. the mesh on the case itself is way to wide to catch any dust. I went to HOBBY LOBBY and pretty much made my own.
