Different Problems with the Rift S

Hey guys,

have my Rift S since 2 days now and i got only Problems with it. The Mic goes off for no reason, that i have to replugin the rift that it works, try different USB Slots already (3.1 & 3.0) and different Display changes.

Since today i have in Steam Games no Sound, same sound settings as always, checked it, changed it from Rift to Headset and back, no changes.

If i put the Headset on, it dont start sometimes, that i have replugin the USB cable.

My Speccs:
  • Intel i7 6700
  • 16GB DDR4
  • Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 6GB AORUS Xtreme
  • Asus Z170 Pro Gaming
  • Windows 10 Pro 64
Any tipps?

    New Update, still the Problems with the mic that it dont works after 10-20 Minutes anymore that i have to replug the Rift S.

    This cant be. I cant plugin every 10-20Minutes as Twitch Streamer to have the Mic working for my VR Streams.

    And 0 response from Oculus Team....
