Rift keeps crashing since update


I got my Rift for Christmas and have been loving it until the most recent update (Sunday 27th Jan). I play almost solely racing Sims and haven't had any issues but after the Occulus update on Sunday I keep having the Occulus go black and then the game CTD... I updated my GPU driver on Tuesday and that seemed to sort it... I completed a 100minute race last night with no issues. I then tried again tonight and it crashed... Does anyone have any ideas?

    I'm having this exact same problem on all my sim racing games but also on other VR games. Need a fix ASAP. Can't run for more than half an hour without the system crashing. Need help!!

    Try to opt into the PTC (Public Test Channel) in the Oculus desktop app - then you'll get the 1.35 beta version, hopefully that'll help.
