Oculus Rift and USB 3.1 only Mainboards in Virtual Reality Posted June 23, 2018 Hey there, I´ve got a short question concerning Oculus Rift Connection to USB 3.1 only Mainboards just like the Asrock Z370 Extreme 4. This is the one that I purchased (not yet delivered) and now I wonder if the Rift/Sensors will even work on USB 3.1 ports as there are no USB 3.0 or even USB 2.0 Ports anymore. I also googled around a Little and stumbled about some Posts where Users told that it would work with 3.1 only, thus I would like to know if some of you guys have particular experiences with this may be with the Z370 Extreme Board as well. Thanks regards Memphis When I had a motherboard with built-in USB 3.0 ports, even with a self-powered USB hub, sometimes I had trouble with the HMD going dark, or my HOTAS being intermittent. So, I bought a dedicated USB 3.0 card with 5 ports on it made by Inateck, and those problems went away. I recently got an ASRock Z370 motherboard with 3.1 ports only and moved the Inateck card over to that. It still works perfectly with no dropouts. I know that doesn't quite address your question, but if the 3.1 ports on the mobo don't work, this is a good fallback option for you. The Rift pulls a lot of juice on the USB interface, so its usually best to have it on an independently powered USB port/hub/card anyway.
