    Constant loss of tracking with the Win10 USB 3.0 driver. Like nearly unplayable.

    With the "hacked" Intel 2013 Native you can actually go through the camera setup steps. But like any tiny adjustment off then similar tracking issues. Anyone not having a dedicated VR room should get the Rift S since bumped cameras happen a lot.

    Yeah the rift S inside tracking fixes that I believe, I should also add that I'm using the USB port with PowerShare I don't know if that makes a difference, I've not tried any other port as that is the one closer to the mini display port

    Probably just uses the USB for power to the display and not a massive, endless steam of data.

    What are you doing for GPU fan control?

    Nothing at the moment, everything works great and temps are good just like with any other game, if anything I may need to upgrade the cpu as it may have become a bottleneck for VR.

    Where did you get the card? Perhaps I am behind the times with a Zotac card and no EC support so needing HWInfo which I hate.
