Hi folks,

BSODs while Oculus connected? I've found my issue and resolved it.

I've been through a couple of rough days endlessly troubleshooting BSODs I've been having after long gaming sessions (so after exiting games, then within 5 minutes: BSOD). I thought this was GPU related, because I had no BSODs before installing my new GPU.

Turned out the issue was my fresh Windows 10 install, or more accurately: no longer having the optional USB 3.0/3.1 mainboard driver installed. Installed it. Fixed it. Turns out the fucking OCULUS RIFT prompts a WHEA critical error BSOD (hardware failure) on older USB 3.x drivers. Personally I have the MSI z170a mobo so this driver is the one you need in that case.

I'll post this in the hardware discussion forum as well, so I can reach as many people as possible.

Nice post. Which Oculus do you have? Or does it matter?

It's the Oculus Rift S! I think this issue & fix applies to both Rifts.
