I'm having trouble connecting my DK2 to the displayport on my RX480 since my monitor is HDMI and I have 1 HDMI and 3 displayports. I had to use an adapter which worked sometimes. Did you have to face this issue maybe?
No, my issues don't relate with ports, that I use. And I didn't meet that kind of problem. Try another adapter, maybe?
Update: There are the same crashes on the latest drivers too.
I have found a workaround, but it's not that pretty:
I have an ASUS R9 Fury Strix and it ALWAYS crashes when using my Oculus Rift CV1 and this is how I make it work:
- Uninstall all that crap amd software and drivers with DDU
- Install AMD drivers NOT newer than 16.11... WITHOUT installing the AMD Settings app.
- As my card is an ASUS, I install ASUS GPU Tweak II (you could try with this or MSI Afterburner)
- In GPU Tweak II set to OC Mode to the minimum (101%) or more if you want. I'm not sure how this is done with Afterburner.
The thing is that the Crimson overclocking software (Overdrive or Wattman) won't respond to the frequency change spikes that the Rift requires and it will crash as soon as you turn your head.
I'm still having a hard time because the software is still updating no matter what I do. What a pain... I'm leaving AMD as soon as I can.
Edit: I take back what I posted, tried what kingfish posted and it worked!

The issue is your third party controllers, like Asus Tweak, MSI, Afterburner, etc, etc. All conflict with Wattman/AMD controls.
Could you please describe what did you do more detailed?
