Oculus crash PC when launch

In short, the problem is that after starting the Oculus app, my PC crashes, freezes, and sometimes blues the screen with the error clock_watchdog_timeout, no matter if I click on the thumbnail or activate the sensor in the headset. My guess is that it is faulty Oculus drivers, but the problem is that after rebooting the PC a couple of times, everything works properly. I have an Oculus Rift CV1 + Touch that I bought back in 2019 and stopped playing after 2 months. I had it stored in the closet in its original box, so it looks brand new. What is noteworthy is that this has never been a problem before. Back then, I had an 8700 + Z370-E STRIX.

Nevermind, the problem was in the undervolt. I had 1.290 on the vcore, so it was too low for the system, so it was crashing.

For people who have this problem, I solved it by enabeling the E-cores back.
