Well ...got it up and running and it definitely looks great..... amazing res compared to the other headsets I've had .....Started getting a flickering issue after about 2 hrs ..left eye ...I did the cable mod from the git go and still got the flickering after a few hours.
Last Wednesday night after about 2 hrs play when the headset heated up I got flickering ....
Thursday morning fired it up and within 2 hrs flickering started again .....then Friday night I put a small fan on a shelf above my monitor blowing down towards my face as I played and I experienced no flickering after 2 hours .
I installed a usb 3.0 PCI card that plugs into my power supply for my MB just to see if it would help. Plugged into the new PCI powered USB card and started flying with the fan off just to see if the new card solved the flickering issue and within an hour and a half the flickering started ,this time the right eye. Reached up and turned on the fan and in about 6 or 7 minutes the flickering went away and stayed away for the rest of my flight time...bout' an hour and a half more....I think my on board 3.0 ports are fine as I flew last night for a few hours with the fan on plugged into them and no flickering.
I believe this particular headset has an over heating issue as another guy who got his at the same time from the same place has no issue..
I'm definitely going to exchange it for another one as many times as it takes to get a good one as I can not go back in Res now that I've had it......BoX looks great.... the towns look amazing as do the trees
