  1. I doubt that too. Ive done a bit of research into the Oculus link of course its in beta so still possible to change but from the looks of it yes you will be able to play all of the PC VR games using the PCs resources not its own, with the better graphics and not toned down like it is on its own. However Ive seen a major flaw in it. It uses a USB 3 data bus. Which although it is fast, it is not fast enough. Because of this the data, which is essentially a display output, that is required from the PC has to be compressed and then sent to the headset. Resulting in dropped quality. Although Oculus has done some fancy software work to make this run better and keep from the loss in visual quality, it still comes with some side effects. It has been observed when turning your head too quickly you will see the black bars move with you before the image is loaded in for where youre facing. This is because of Oculus with their software making it so only what youre looking at is rendered, smart. However as a result as the apromentioned side effect which can be annoying when playing fast pace shooter games, or in any games with alot of head movement for that matter. There are rumors that I have heard that they are going to improve the software more so its faster and easier to get data through to the headset. One such rumor mentions that only where the wearer is looking will be full rendered, although this could work well and there would be no "noticible" down grade in visual quality theres an issue with it. The Quest does not have eye tracking. Which means that for this idea to be implimented they will have to make the spot where the image is fully rendered in the centre of the screen. This is an issue because looking around with your eyes will just feel awful and almost be like a strange kind of fish eye effect. Where the image isnt destorted, just visualy worse as it gets closer to the edges. All of this seems like alot of work for something they could actually fix quite easily. Which is make the port on the quest a thunderbot 3 port. not just a USB C port. Same plug but diffrent protocalls. Thunderbolt 3 is a far superior protocol and supports displayport. Which then could be used as the Oculus link and would be much easier to software impliment. As it could be used as a regular PC tethered headset. meaning all the funky software they have that doesnt rendered things that arent being looked at and ect would not be needed. As thunderbolt 3 would be able to keep up with the required bandwith to act as if it was just a regular VR headset and fix all the issues presented using the USB 3 data bus. Although yes this solution does involve the need for a new release of the headset for the better chip to be used. I personally dont feel as if this would be that difficult to have intoduced. For example all Quest that are bought from what ever date they impliment it will have the new thunderbolt 3 chip. And for all of those who bought the Quest before the upgraded chip, a sysetem could be intoduced to have their headset sent in and have the chip upgraded. Or better yet. Send the required chip to participating computer stores to have it swapped there.
  2. So obviously with new release of the Quest all of the attention oculus has, has primarily been towards it and its futher development. Which is quite understandable. However what I want to know is what they plan to do with the Rift S. To my knowldge the Rift S is still better than the Quest in every way other than its tethered to a PC and has a worse display. And its that last advantage the Quest has thats got me wondering what they will do with the Rift S. As to me it doesnt make sense that the Quest (which has to have the graphics of the games it has tonned down to be able to run) have the higher resolution and OLED display. The Rift S and the Quest were released quite close together so its not like they didnt have the ability to make the Rift S with the better display and better resolution. And from what ive been told even with the lower resolution and the worse display it still looks better graphically because its able to have the full textures rather than the reduced ones on the Quest. So it just doesnt seem logical to make the Rift S with those down falls. As its just resulted in Oculus killing its own product. And with the current standing of the two being priced the same its just making things more confusing as to why Oculus would do this. So overall what im hoping for from Oculus is that they release something like a Rift S 2 or an equivilant that simply just has the better resolution and display pannels. Or possibly even drop the prices on the current Rift S and when going to purchase one have the option for the better display. Although im not a electrical engineer or some kind of product designer it doesnt seem like it would be that hard to impliment. Esspecially seeing as they have it on the Quest which would seem like a more complex device.
  3. Im not acually trying to make some kind of dock or seperate device that goes with the laptop to cool it. Im trying to intergrate it completely. so there is no dock or other device. Its all self contained and still a fundamental laptop just cooled by water instead.
  4. Actually that would be my best bet. Like you said Mbowen making my own custom rad would be near impossible. And that’s why I would keep looking to avoid that. And this little gem arrived and I could easily integrate that. Thank you denned!
  5. Yeah both of you guys see what I’m going for here. Although it’s completely impractical it would still be something cool. As Semper said it would ware on the hinges. However I recon if you did it right and got the balance of the weight it wouldn’t put to much strain on it. I think your right just a simple spacer would be best for it. Mbowen your comment about a pump and reservoir, I actually think it would be pretty easy to implement the pump into the rad. And as it’s a laptop I recon that the water just in the system would be enough for it. The only issue I would have is getting small enough parts for it. As like I said being so small it wouldn’t need a full sized radiator or pump.
  6. I am aware of a laptops cooling capacity. And I know there isn’t much thermal headroom. However gaining more thermal headroom is not what I’m after here. Yes it’s a good thing to do on laptops and may gain better performance. However it is not what I am asking. So it’s not helpful to me
  7. Hmm. Sounds like you’ve bricked it mate sorry. If it’s turning on and your unable to get to the BIOS then there’s not much you can do other then what’s already been said
  8. Maybe it’s done something funny or you accidentally switched the display output. Try getting a display from the other ports on the motherboard itself
  9. So I have this (hypothetical) idea of how I could water cool my laptop. I’d make a custom waterblock using CAD and machine milling it and blah blah blah until I got an input and output for water to flow. Sounds great. But now how am I gonna cool the stuff? Well I have this idea of actual mounting what would be the radiator and fans to the back of laptop so it can all be still self contained. I’d mount it against the back of it so it still retains some kind of sleekness to it but how do I do that without cutting off the airflow? I’d need something like what some GPUs have. A blower style radiator. But to my knowledge nothing like that exsists. Any solutions that doesn’t involve making it it’s own unit or making it stick out a bunch?
  10. If it’s getting past post then you can get into the BIOS. You’re probably gonna have to undo the overclocking. It could be for a number of reasons. You could have done too hard of an overclock and didn’t give it enough voltage. You got unlucky in the silicon lottery and it isn’t good enough for an overclock. Or your motherboard simply isn’t getting the required power from your PSU for the overclock. If it’s an old PC that was prebuilt than it likely has a PSU that is just adequate for its settings. Along with many other possibilities
  11. I recently got a Dell G7 17 (7590). Here’s the link to all of its details: https://www.dell.com/en-au/shop/dell-laptops/dell-g7-17-gaming-laptop/spd/g-series-17-7790-laptop/gn77d595au However I was wondering. Although it’s a H series chip. Would there be some way of overclocking it (not undervolting) that doesn’t involve boosting the base clock? I’d rather not have to deal with the unnecessary whirl of fans and temperatures of a higher clock speed when it’s not needed. Although I know it’s obviously not built for it being locked and this is somewhat dangerous if still like to if possible keep this as safe as possible. So no dangerous custom BIOS if avoidable
  12. Update. The BIOS doesn't even give me the ability play around with literally any settings for the CPU other then allowing the cores to run at different frequency ranges or not. So I guess I'm stuck with a dysfunctional graphics Card or an even worse integrated graphics that won't run at it's full potential
  13. Okay so I tried that. And it worked well, I was even able to get a better resolution. However, when I tried to do a game test (Unturned, even on lowest settings) it was an absolute slide show. I checked what was going on and for some reason it wouldn't go beyond it's base clock. I'll double check in the bios if there's something prohibiting it.
