Building a Portable VR PC

 Share

Goal: medium/small form factor PC for VR that can fit at least gtx 1080ti / pcie USB 3.1 hub and the intel pcie chip needed for the wireless module for htc Vive and Vive pro.

 

why: I go into local bars and restaurants to host VR nights. I'm currently useing an Alienware laptop with a gtx1060 and it works well enough but I'm looking to up my game (so to speak) so Im looking to build a system with great vr functionality that's portable enough that I can comfort take to gigs 

 

HTC vive compatible: the Vive fits my use case better then my Oculus rift, plus wireless is a big deal and the rift doesn't have any compelling options for wireless right now. (not quest)

 

Desired desired specs: I need the case to be durible and I don't really care if it has a glass side panel as long as it can take being moved a lot I plan on putting a rysen 7 CPU/all in one water cooler a GTX 1080ti /or higher module power supply and a Samsung Evo ssd + a m.2 drive plus the Intel chip for the Vive wireless adapter and possibly the USB 3.1 pcie card I don't mind modding the case to make somethings fit if needed

What 1080ti? Do you have a preference?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Get an Aero 15x if you want max portability.

You could go Silverstone Sugo SG13, then go with a 1080 to FE, then use a 120mm radiator up front.

Not sure what you mean by 2100s, like the next gen RTX cards? After market isn't as important as the right behavior, and I must say, a blower card is the best for small form factor, and founders edition is the best blower model. Also, you don't need to worry about PCIe wifi, there are itx motherboards with WiFi built in.

I'm not worried about wifi the Vive  has a wireless adapter for it but in order to use it I'll need a free pcie slots so I'm probably looking for a micro atx case I'm not as worried about having a tiny computer as much as a portable one like a lanbox pc preferably with a handle but i can mod in a handle

Oh I was mistaken, I thought the wireless adapter came off the link box.

The Corsair one is one of the ones I'm looking at I'm hoping I can find something a little smaller/ boxier and I did like the Lian like one but it won't take a full size GPU but I might just be dreaming lol?

I personally own the 380T. It's fantastic, but expensive because they dont make it anymore and "new" ones on ebay are dumb expensive.

It's mITX though and you definitely cant fit an mATX motherboard in it.

 

Plus you can put a 200mm RGB fan in the front to impress the people who like flashy things :D
