UPDATE: it turns out they put it up too early and they've now taken it down. As they said on Twitter: "Earlier today we published some pages related to our upcoming parts launch with Valve. These went live earlier than we planned, so we ended up taking them down. If you did get a parts order in, we'll honor it.

Stay tuned for the real launch soon!"


Have you already broken your shiny Steam Deck or want some spares to tinker with? You're in luck, as it seems parts have now appeared over on iFixit. Looks like in some places they're selling out fast and it's not available yet in all regions, but here in the UK it all seems to be in stock — but for how long?

From what I can see they currently have

  • UK charger - £24.99
  • EU charger - £24.99
  • Screen Adhesive - £4.96
  • Battery Adhesive - £4.96
  • Motherboard (No SSD included) - £289.99

  • Front Plate - £24.99
  • Back Plate - £24.99
  • Right Bumper - £6.99
  • Left Bumper - £6.99
  • Speakers - £24.99
  • Steam Button Rubber Membrane - £4.99
  • D-pad Rubber Membrane - £4.99
  • Action Button Rubber Membrane - £4.99
  • Screen (64GB / 256GB) - From £59.99
  • 512GB Anti-glare Screen - From £89.99
  • Fan - From £19.99

So it seems right now they're missing the Battery, Thumbsticks, Face Buttons and probably other bits I forgot. So not the entire thing but plenty of it there ready and for those that might be sold out, at least you have an idea of a price for now.

I have very little interest in the Deck beyond the effect it has on Linux-native gaming in the long run
Likewise (and that's looking good so far) although with everyone raving about how awesome and fun it is I may be starting to get tempted.
Can't even get the steam deck itself yet (ordered 17th july) let alone parts for it

On the plus side, if they do enough parts I might be able to build my own without needing to wait for valve's less than 1 minute since launch a week's worth of pre-orders sent schedule for UK?

(for reference, valve, per week are shipping on average 20-60 seconds worth of orders for UK each week - at the rate valve are shipping I'll get mine by early 2023, or mid 2023 by my calculations based on 1 minute's worth of orders per week, despite them claiming I'm in Q3, I'm just waiting for the next delayed announcement.)

That was my thought as another Q3-gang member: if all the parts go up in the next three months, I could just buy and build my own faster.

Just gotta hope Valves continues to manage to ramp up production rates, I suppose.

I'm also wondering if it will be faster to buy the parts and build the deck myself rather than waiting for the preorder.

As far as individual parts go, I wonder if the gyro is included as part of the motherboard (I imagine it would be) or if it is something to be added to the "not available as a part yet" list.
Quoting: Liam DaweUpdated: they did a woops. Wasn't supposed to be live.

They did state they'll honor all the orders that were placed while the site was live, so that's nice.

I was thinking of 3D printing a backplate with a custom mount for a full-size M.2 nvme SSD (2280 or so), for use with an extender, and with a hole for said extender. However, if backplates are available, it could be easier, if not cheaper to buy one and mod it. Thanks valve!
