Hey all,

Made a post a while back talking about a portable VR setup we were working on for a client. Thought there may be some interest here now that its built (and again thanks for the suggestions re CPU and GPU).

Specs:

 

-i7 8700K

-Mini ITX Asus Z390-i

-RTX 2080 (ZOTAC Blower Style)

-Samsung 970PRO SSD

-15" touchscreen

-500W 1U PSU

-Built into a Pelican 1510 (carry-on)

 

System goes from zero (latches closed) to hero (in game) in under 60 seconds.

 

Cooling is accomplished by two 70mm PWM Deltas (push/pull) with air-pathing for a cold---> hot section. In VR the fans don't really throttle up much, in bench marking they do make some noise, however do NOT go to full throttle (at least at ambient Victoria weather)

 

All components are affixed to a floating 1/8" aluminum plate with CNC mounts for tie downs. The plate is left floating for impact and vibration isolation (closed cell foam all around the plate). All components are then sandwiched to the floating plate through a thermally conductive gel isolation pad to both give added vibration isolation and so components such as the MB can shed heat from the rear of the PCB into the plate (which has cold air channeled over it.)

There is then a plexi "false floor" that is stood off from the pelican case to again sandwiched all the components (and the aluminum plate) down. Additional foam is held under compression to help dampen against impact. Plexi was chosen mainly to smooth airport security.

That's quite an impressive work! The server PSU was a great ideo for saving space. What screen did you use?

Thanks!

The screen is an ELO 1502L (15.6" 1920x1080 touchscreen). Expensive for a "meh" monitor (~$700 CAD) but well built and available in quantities of one.
