  1. Hmmm thanks for the info! That's certainly encouraging. Like I mentioned in my OP, it did work flawlessly at first, then the performance degraded to where I couldn't play for 4-5 minutes without gray and black screens. I'm using the XMP profile for the board and didn't change anything, but I could always try lowering to 3200MHz and see if that helps. I still have hope for increased compatibility from HTC and the MOBO manufacturers, so here's hoping!
  2. Thanks, @HackPerception. That's pretty unfortunate to hear. I will continue to hope that things get better because the difference between wired and wireless is night and day and I have invested quite a bit of money into this and cannot even use it.
  3. Over the last few months, I fought and scrapped and found myself in possession of the parts I wanted to build a new PC. The specs are: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X AORUS X570 Master EVGA RTX 3080 XC Ultra 32GB G. Skill Trident Z Neo DDR4 at 3600MHz 850W EVGA PSU When I first setup the Vive Cosmos Elite and wireless adapter, I was floored. Coming from an i7-8700K, the wireless was buttery smooth. Everything worked great...until it didn't. I started getting the gray screens and then the black screens and then sometimes, it wouldn't come back at all until a reboot. I have a fan mounted on the
  4. @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."
  5. *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!
  6. 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.
  7. I purchased this cable per that post and it did not help. Still get the overheating.
  8. 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.
  9. @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.
  10. Thanks for the suggestion but I always have the power plan set to High Performance. Hasn't helped me.
  11. 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!
  12. Support is sending a cable so I'll test and report back, @C.T.. Thanks!
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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 208
