Got my Amp + 1080 hooked up. Easy set up. I think it's ready for VR wink.gif

Yep, your good to go lol

I cancelled my order for the 1060 I was getting to carry on saving for a 1070 instead.
However, I saw a used HTC Vive for sale on a forum I use for a really good price, so I used the money for that instead lol

So now I'll see how well the vive works with the standard 960 in the R2 :-)

It arrives Tuesday hopefully!

So my graphics amp will sit boxed up for a little while longer yet lol

I have ordered my Alpha last Tuesday so now I'm waiting it biggrin.gif
I will plug my AGA with a gtx 970 and see if I'm VR ready.
I can't wait anymore...

You should be fine!
With the 960 inside the R2 overclocked, the Steam VR test shows me as right near the top of the yellow "Capable" band!

So with the 970 you will be in the green :-)

Sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting for my i5 Alpha R2, lol...

Do they even update you when it's shipped? Judging from some comments from owners on reddit it's hit or miss with Dell Customer Support. Supposed to arrive tomorrow from their original provided estimate delivery date but yeah, not too sure. What time frame did you guys get yours within?

I ordered mine about eight days ago, and still no updates on my personal Dell order page. Called up and got a manager who said it had already been built and was being handed to the courier four days ago. Have expedited shipping.

Just want it already so I can start playing max'd out Fallout: New Vegas with ENBs! Hehe. Might play some Rage as well.

Dell's tracking service is absolutely archaic!

Got a BIOS update in "SupportAssist" 1.0.2 to 1.0.5 I think was the numbers. Not sure if it fixes anything/what it does though.

Might be to do with the fan cooling?

And Raven (Alienware Community Manager) mentioned a new BIOS update re: cooling on one of the Reddit threads a few weeks ago.

You still getting high CPU temps? I'm maxing at 73c usually when that seems a bit warm. That's even using the Amp so nothing's really getting too warm inside the Alpha.
