     This message is a lie and it annoys me to no end. Running an AMD FX 8320 Eight core at 3.5 GHz, 16GB of ram, and a GTX 970. Benchmarks even show my processor is better than their minimum but some how doesn't meet the requirements. Give me a break!

    +1 I concur and my Xeon Quad Duo 3GHz also does a very good job in VR. Yes they do lie which should be against trading standards!

    Just because your processor works (with a hack), doesn't mean they need to change the ones they recommend.

    Yes it does because I bought the Rift and paid for content and still do. I am a customer. It did not say I can not use the Rift because it won't work but they simply add a very annoying WARNING SIGN for those that they decide to harass. The Rift works much better than many i5 & i7 on my old PC! It is a marketing strategy to annoy us that do not tick their SSE4.2 pass. It does not affect those that don't get it.
    I and other users want this message removed!!!

    Users don't dictate the recommended specs, the company does. When something can make someone sick from running poorly, you're damn right they're going to throw up an annoying message to cover their ass, you can't blame them if you ignore the warning.

    Use the tray tool, it has a little box to click that spoofs your CPU, to one that's compatible. As long as only your CPU is what isn't compatible, you'd be fine. If it's not just your CPU, then you should upgrade.

    "Recommended" should not mean harassing the hell out us by adding Warnings that do not reflect any bad performance what so ever. It's a lie. Thanks for the Tray Tool tip but I prefer to not need running extras really.
    Just as we can choose not to see the Health Warning they should provide a Disable Switch for this also and not the same as they use in Desktop with a Warning we can click to close. That's another complaint they must address.
    Recommendations are NOT REQUIREMENTS obviously else I'd upgrade.

    +1 on the disable switch or OK button. Certainly, just a mild irritation and maybe a bit over the top to demand it. I do empathize. My Xeon doesn't have the blessing.
    Generations and model numbers just don't seem like a very scientific way to determine what is compatible. What works best should be what is recommended? Shouldn't the compatibility tool be more like a benchmark? I'm pretty confident most of the folks posting here asking for the ability to remove that, are fully aware that their PC's don't have Oculus's blessing, and are probably having an easier time than the many that went out and bought so-called Oculus-ready laptops.   
    I can live with that constant reminder in dash.  My Xeon and 390 are handling everything I through at it with supersampling applied.  It serves no use, I was able to memorize it the first time I saw it.

    GUYS!!!  If you grab the Oculus Tray Tool from the GENERAL area it has that option to remove that warning. 

    A little actual SEARCH goes a long way.

    Here's the latest of OTT and it does the trick. That's the 3rd Hack I have now been forced to use simply to get by Oculus RECOMMENDATIONS. So glad they aren't my boss!

    UPDATE 09/05
    Version 0.84.0 is here. Grab it from http://bit.ly/2wIBIkq.
    Zip package for those who want that instead: http://bit.ly/2MQWGsj

    I am aware of this, I would rather not. It only works the first time here and I have to do it again. I'd rather not spoof my OS to get rid of a nag screen. I'm sure most here are also aware since it's been mentioned in this thread many times. Does the request bother you?
