seta8967Dont you need 4usb for occulus? The front bay only has 2 usb ports.
Supercharged_Z06Having an HDMI cable and accompanying USB cables sticking out of a front mounted plate on a tower? Ummm, for me at least, no thanks!! A tower faceplate is a sub-optimal/awkward solution. It may look nice without anything plugged in, however having cables that plug in there would just be begging to have them get torqued or ripped out due to the high placement, rigidity and lack of cable relief. A much better solution is to simply go to monoprice and pick up a 3 foot premium HDMI extension cable and a couple of USB3 extension cables and problem solved! You get the same "extra" cable length/reach for about $10 and can bundle those cables together or even create a nice little breakout box that sits at the side of your PC where everything for your Oculus/Vive VR gear would nicely plug in. It would lower the cables out of the way, keeping them from getting yanked out and give more "play" and strain relief, plus solve the issue of not having to reach behind your box to plug things in. While the front panel idea looks really nice, it simply isn't practical. The connectors will get trashed in a hurry after getting ripped out and/or yanked on a few times... Plus it will look like crap with all the cables hanging off of it. Just my 2 cents. I would MUCH rather see EVGA sell a really nice metal enclosure about the size of a small brick that is slightly weighted with rubber feet so as to not move around too much, that would provide all of the needed ports out of the one end and a single fat bundled cable coming out of the other (about 3-4 feet long) that would then split out into the needed HDMI and USB connectors for plugging in at the rear of a case. Now THAT idea would sell to EVERYONE that wanted to hook an Oculus to their PCs! Price it reasonably, ~$40 or less, and it would sell like crazy!
GhostImage VR customer base is not that huge, its still a emerging sector of the market. I would definitely ask enthusiasts (which they must of done) around before making it.Just curious.
MichaelTeneryI have this GPU. I am getting flakyness out of the front HMDI port. I unpluged everything, made sure the internal HMDI cable wasn't grounding against anything but still flaky with the DK2. Specifically not long after I start viewing anything in the Rift DK2 in VR I get a white screen of snow. I plug it into the back and this does not happen at all, even once. I am hoping this is just an issue with the DK2 and that the CV1 won't have this issue or there was no reason for me to shell out the extra money for the drive bay. When I get the Rift CV1 next month I will report back.
bcavnaughAny recommendation for a good Head Mounted Display HMD?
Brad_HawthornebcavnaughAny recommendation for a good Head Mounted Display HMD?VIVE or Rift. Those are what I'd consider the only true contenders at the moment. Rift is shipping, VIVE isn't yet.
MichaelTeneryTo be fair it is a long wait for either at the moment. July for the Rift. May for the Vive last I heard. You can get the rift earlier if you buy a new computer that is sold for the rift but that is some serious money.

The back order on Rifts have new orders shipping in July though. Early bird gets the worm.
