Cleaning NUC

25 June 2018 - 10:23 AM

After seeing a thread over at whirlpool about a nuc that cooked itself and noticing our office nuc had gotten a little louder i figured maybe it was time to give it a clean...



That one little gap is where the fan shroud doesn't even cover

Now that its all cleaned up hs lapped and a fresh coat from a ancient tube of arctic ceramic its peaking at 60-70c under full load with the fan running 3200-3300rpm

I may tweak the fan profile a bit now

Purchased the Razer OSVR HDK2 $375

It arrived in the mail today and I must say it crushed my hopes and dreams of VR gaming quite spectacularly.


Dual Display 2160x1200 (1080 X 1200 per eye) low persistence OLED silver screen with 441 PPI running at 90 fps.
IQE (Image Quality Enhancement) technology for reduced screendoor effect. <Fails from what I have read this is just a blur filter...


(Just sent this off to Razer Support)

Display is very pixilated it's like looking through fly wire or at a 27" monitor running 640x480
Tried to play hl2 and l4d2 but its too blurry to read anything and the texture quality is nonexistent

Doesn't fit my face the eye pieces are too narrow they hit my nose so that the zoom slides itself back in from the pressure of resting against my nose putting it back out of focus

My eye lashes rub the lenses making them foggy

Is there any workarounds for these problems?

On the up side i didn't feel any sicker after playing l4d2 with it on than I did before I started which seems to be the main complaint about vr

If the quality was bearable it would be a rather immersive experience so maybe one day vr will be worth a look but at this stage they have a long way to go as my eyes have gotten use to 4k and don't want to go back to vhs


Why VR Image is Bad? Screen Door Effect Coping With PenTile Hybrid Technology

Wonder if I can get my money back


From what i can find the image quality problems are not limited to the Razer VR and while some may be a little better none are acceptable
