    You can apparently, using something called Vorp-X (http://www.vorpx.com/vorpx-16-2-0-beta-htc-vive-support-released/) Takes some getting used to though from what I've read. Apparently the Vive and Rift are really really good and it can fuck with your brain and make you think you're there. So when you travel in game but you don't move, it messes with some people. Also apparently arms mess with people as well. Hands are ok, but when you show arms, I guess it makes people feel out of place or some shit.

    Yep, I guess I'm a bit later than the "sheeple" when it came to this, but... I pulled the trigger on it:

    Anyone here do liquid cooling?
    I don't mean custom kits, but something like a Corsair H60 or better.

    I had considered doing this, but I've always been wary of trying liquid cooling. For my rig, I have the Hyper 212 EVO cooling my i7-4790K, and with using Arctic MX4 for thermal paste, hardly breaks a sweat.

    I went ahead and got the Corsair H100i v2, and some SP120 PWM Quiet fans for it. I may overclock in the future, but for now I like the setup.

    Also added A Samsung 850 EVO V-Nand SSD (250GB) and a Toshiba X300 1TB hard drive to the setup.
    Next purchase will be a new vid card.

    i decided that i actually needed a laptop cooler so i got one. Considering i had a spare couple hundred bucks left till the end of the month i decided to get a fairly high end one too. So i got a NZXT cryo x60 http://www.custompcreview.com/reviews/nzxt-cryo-x60-notebook-cooler-review/18779/

    i also got my old ipod video repaired, considered upgrading the hard drive to a solid state but the shop that offered it asked way too much for an upgrade to 512gb.(i already upgraded my ipod before to 240gb)

    Bought the cheapest usb microphone i could find.

    Havent bought any computer stuff in 18 months untill now.
    I usually spend my extra bucks on music.

    Pulled the trigger on a high end suspension for my Xterra.

    [​IMG]


    Here's the old stuff, check out how broken my previous suspension was... Missing chunks of leaf spring.


    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Here's the install:

    [​IMG]

    And here's the car after the new suspension swap- Riding at 38" in the front and 37.5" in the rear. I need to adjust and lower the front ride a little by maybe an inch.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Here's the ride w/ a stock suspension for comparison.
