Could anyone make the R9 Fury work using Oculus Rift CV1 with any driver newer than 16.11.xx? Please let me know how. Thanks!

I'd like to use the newest drivers and software, but I have to do some workaround to be able to use it and I don't like that.

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 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

- In GPU Tweak II set to OC Mode to the minimum (101%) or more, it doesn't matter.

- Play

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 my head.

I'm still having a hard time because the software is still updating no matter what I do. What a pain...


Please help me! I've been struggling for months and I find no fix for this!
