Best Build

VR Abyss

This was intended to be an upgrade to my previous VR PC (the Beat Saber box) but ended up being a whole new build. I already had the CPU and RAM from a previous build but other than that it ended up being all new!

This is built to allow me to play VR at high settings and frees up the Beat Saber Box to be re purposed as a capture/streaming machine. I wanted a clean looking, quiet build so opted for air cooling instead of an AIO for the ultimate in low noise and once I saw the Dark Rock Pro 4 I knew I had to go with a dark theme for the build. Aside from the pictures, no one will ever see the inside of this but I know it's tidy in there and that's what matters.

To keep the dark theme going I added a 3d printed I/O cover (inside) and custom made a backplate for the PCI-E USB hub (added to give me another discrete USB controller which help with multiple Rift sensor setup)

In terms of performance, it doesn't break a sweat in Beat Saber (the main VR game I play) and to test I ran Real Bench for 30 mins, it held an overclock of 4.9Ghz for the 30 minutes and temps didn't go above 80 degrees with the fans on a very quiet curve. In daily use the PC is inaudible, even when playing Beat Saber. Overall, I'm very, very happy with this machine!
