  1. I am unable to use third party USB 3.0 drivers with Mixed Reality, that's why I didn't mention it. It is not supported. I did install them, but removed them. Maybe the driver still interferes with something? Also, how did it work the first 5 months then? This question is boggling me for some time now.
  2. Specs: i7 2600k (OC ~4,3 GHz) ASUS P8P67 (REV 3.1) (ASMedia USB 3.0 drivers aren't compatible with Mixed Reality) 16GB DDR3 (1600MHz) GTX 980TI A SSD and 3 other HDDs The Headset: HP VR1000-100nn The USB 3.0 PCIe Card with VIA Chipset and external Molex Power (only german amazon link available) I installed the card in my motherboard PCIe 1x slot above my graphics card, powering it per molex, and I used to run Mixed Reality just fine. After ~5 months of usage my headset turned itself off while playing BeatSaber; the cable got burned and it smoked. The headset itself got damaged, too. We sent the headset back and bought the same PCIe card again, so we would have no issues with the old card. I plugged in the new headset in the new USB 3.0 PCIe card powered with Molex, and the same thing happened. The headset and my cable got burned, not even getting detected by Windows and the card apparently "crashed", according to device manager. I did test the USB 3.0 PCIe card by putting my USB Stick into it, worked just fine. I could transfer files without it exploding or something. Now, the headset itself still works, I got a new cable and got to test it on a friends Ryzen 5 2600 PC, no issues, except it didn't work in the USB 3.1 Gen2 port, for some reason. I still want to play VR in my home though, that's why I thought of buying ANOTHER PCIe card, the Inateck KTU3FR-4P, hoping that the Fresco Logic "FL1100" chipset and SATA Power could help my situation (being recommended on reddit and officially from oculus, as I have heard) or else I would have to buy a new Motherboard, Processor and RAM or get a Laptop with enough performance to handle VR. I want to mostly know how this issue came to be, is it that my headset drew to much power and destroyed itself or is my PSU acting up? Was the PCIe card simply built too cheaply and that's why it couldn't handle the VR Headset?
  3. This happens since I turned on XMP in my BIOS (ASUS P8P67). My Memory runs at its advertised speeds (~1600 MHz, used to run 1333 MHz) and my processor (i7 2600k) is now overclocked at 4,4 GHz due to XMP. Also I wanted to ask if 76-77 degrees Celcius is safe for this processor during a stress test.
  4. sorry guys, i am just stupid... the whole pc was from a prebuilt which was later gifted me by my uncle. it seems that the psu came with the case, thus both from cougar. there is no sticker on the psu indicating the wattage. I later found out that there were cables tucked away... with additional 6 pin and 8 pin cables connected to the psu for SLI/Crossfire...
  5. I bought a MSI GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G ( by the looks of it ) on ebay, because my old GTX 780 has died. My GTX 780 took a 6pin and a 8pin and, according to nVidias official website, the GTX 980 Ti also needs a 6pin and a 8pin. Both need 250W. Now I bought the MSI GTX 980 Ti immediately when I saw it for 250€ and didn't think much of it. Then I saw the MSI GTX 980 Ti needs 2x8pin which my PSU doesn't have. It only has 1x6pin and 1x8pin. So my question is: Can I still put it in my PC with no worries or do I have to underclock it, so my PSU can handle it?
