  1. @MercilessComa39 I posted this on another thread where I was having the issue. The replacement cable appears to have resolved my issue: "I received the replacement cable from Vive's support. Took 6+ weeks but I played tonight for about 2 1/2 hours and got zero blue, gray, or black screens. Everything seemed to be working really well! Fingers crossed that my issue was due to a bad cable. Not sure how much they cost out of warranty, but may be a good idea to offer those for sale to people should they have this isssue."
  2. *Update* I received the replacement cable from Vive's support. Took 6+ weeks but I played tonight for about 2 1/2 hours and got zero blue, gray, or black screens. Everything seemed to be working really well! Fingers crossed that my issue was due to a bad cable. Not sure how much they cost out of warranty, but may be a good idea to offer those for sale to people should they have this issue. I'll continue to test while I patient await the availability of the 5900x. Can't wait to see how this thing works with that CPU. Thanks, everyone!
  3. I just received the replacement cable from the HMD to the wireless adapter. My adapter was still under warranty so support shipped one (took more than 6 weeks to arrive). I am going to test it out later today to see if that helped resolve the issue.
  4. I purchased this cable per that post and it did not help. Still get the overheating.
  5. Just a quick update: After chatting with support and ordering the replacement cable on October 27th, it's still not here. They said it could take up to three weeks. It has been over a month. Hopefully it'll arrive before the end of 2020 so I can test wireless again.
  6. @Gyroquake No, not yet. They said it can take three weeks. I may try the wireless tonight while I wait now that I moved the WiGig card to the top PCI slot. If I have a chance to try it, I'll report back.
  7. Thanks for the suggestion but I always have the power plan set to High Performance. Hasn't helped me.
  8. Thanks for the info! I was able to put it in the PCIEX1_1 slot right above the GPU so it's now closest to the CPU. Fit like a glove. Once I get the new cables, I'll test and report back here. Appreciate it!
  9. Support is sending a cable so I'll test and report back, @C.T.. Thanks!
  10. The 3-in-1 cable from the headset to the wireless adapter? If so, no, I don't have an extra, just the short one that came with the wireless kit.
  11. Hi @C.T.! 1) The LED light was still green. I could still hear the game running in the background (I was playing Angry Birds VR which isn't graphically intensive). 2) The battery was fully charged prior to playing. I am using an Anker 20000mAh QC 3.0 battery that I had used previously with no issues. Not sure how to check its health though. 3) I am not using the stock USB cable. I purchased this cable per another user's recommendation several months ago and had no issues prior to the motherboard swap. Any other logs I could provide or other things to check? I'd really like to be wireless again. I miss the freedom so much when playing combat-intensive games like GORN and Blade & Sorcery.
  12. I recently swapped motherboards from an MSI Z370m Gaming Pro AC to an ASUS Strix Z390-F Gaming and am having an issue with the wireless adapter. I have the Cosmos Elite and previously, I could play for a while without getting the blue/grey screen or the picture cutting out. On the new motherboard, I couldn't even play for an hour before the picture went completely black and would not turn back on. Less than an hour of playing is pretty bad. I had to switch back to wired just to enjoy my headset again. My PC's specs are: i7-8700K @ 4.9GHz ASUS Strix Z390-F Gaming Motherboard EVGA RTX 2080 XC Ultra 32GB Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB DDR4 RAM @ 3200MHz Games are on one of two M.2 SSD drives The line of sight is perfectly clear as it was previously. I have the WiGig card in the bottom PCIEX16 slot if that makes a difference. I know the 8700K only has 6 cores but I have seen plenty of other users have great success with the wireless kit and I'd like to be a part of that club. Thanks! HtcCU_20201024_194519_13212.txt
  13. I'm glad this worked for you but it did not for me. I just reinstalled W10 and even added a faster M.2 drive as my main drive. My CPU and GPU combo should be more than enough for wireless, and it did work well in the past, but now it doesn't. I've resorted to going back to wired for the time being so at least I can play again. Not sure what the cause is, but hopefully someone can/will review this thread to help shine a light on this.
  14. So as a test, I hooked the headset back up as wired and played Star Wars: Squadrons again. No issues, no pixelation, no screen cuts. Definitely something is up with the wireless. Not sure if it's the beta firmware I'm running or not, but I essentially have $300+ of useless tech right now. And it seems I'm not alone. Is there anything we can do/check to get this resolved? While being wireless doesn't matter as much for seated games like SW:Squadrons, it's not the only game I play. I'd like the freedom back, please!
  15. I'm having the same issues. Cosmos Elite, i7-8700K @ 4.9GHz, and an EVGA RTX 2080 (non-super). I tried playing Star Wars: Squadrons last night and not even 5 minutes into my first match, my FPS TANKED and everything got pixelated. 15 seconds later, no screen whatsoever. Luckily you can toggle VR on and off in the game so I was able to continue the match. However, this is the first time this has happened and now I'm hesitant to even use the wireless which costs a pretty penny. Any suggestions from support would be great because I have invested a LOT of money in this product and not being able to use wireless out of nowhere is a lousy feeling.
