All my slots are 3.0. Still bad performance. Stutters, wave looking heat like on hands, skips. 7700k 1080 ti , my performance is still really awful and a huge downgrade.

I was in wireless VR with the desktop showing and I noticed the Vive Wireless app had a circle with a I on it. Taking off the headset, I think I right clicked on the circled I and it said an update was available. I closed out of VR, etc.. and then ran it. Don't know if you need to close out, etc... but I did. After the update, I went right back in and it seems to be better.
Now the bad news. It does work better for me.. but now I got the condition where you lose tracking every 3 minutes or so for a split second (the whole screen goes grey). Still that is a lot better than what I had before.

We fixed ours really easily by updating the BIOS and forcing the PCIE speed to GEN3 (We used a full PCIE port).
Here's our youtube channel with our results from the troubleshooting.
If you need to troubleshoot more and our steps on the video description aren't working let us know I can try to help you more.

Some motherboards can allow you to force PCIe slots to run in gen3 mode. I don't know if that will help, but other users have suggested it might. I recommend you try it at the very least. As far as I can tell, 3.0 is not a requirement as we've had 2.0 PCIe users make it work, so if you can change the settings in the BIOS, please try that. If not, let me know and we'll try another avenue.

Changing to GEN3 definitely improved performance (the performance had become much worse to the point of not even being able to read text for the entire time the application was launched with the most recent update), but it certainly did not fix it entirely. It still jitters and has resolution drop persistantly, just not to the point that it makes games 100% unplayable. I also tried every other GEN configuration just to be thourough, with GEN3 on both slots giving the best performance.
Now, one thing I just noticed when moving my WiGig card back to the second PCIe 3.0 slot (I can only force PCIE1 and PCIE3 to Gen3, PCI2/4 cannot be set in my bios) that may actually be the entire problem on my end is that when I unscrewed the wireless receiver's cord, the pin stayed behind inside the card! It still runs, but I would imagine the pin isn't supposed to come off, and that may be the source of my issue at this point, as the GPU graph actually shows everything in the green at a consistent 1.2ms, spiking at most to 3.0ms periodically, so I may just need a replacement card sent out.
Another thing worth noting, the current SteamVR beta tanks the performance, putting games back into the unplayable domain. Reverting back to the current stable build gives the best performance.
Did you set all your PCIe slots to GEN3, or only the slot using the WiGig card?
I also will say, regardless of this resolving my wireless VR issue or not, changing over to GEN3 actually fixed some long standing problems I was having with my GPU just really not performing as it should, which I had chalked up to the GPU simply not being as good as I thought it was. After the change I can run my 4k monitor in 4k, and my 1440p monitor at 120hz without any problems, whereas before these settings caused a lot of strain on the system and flickering/artifacts. I had to settle for 1440p on both screens at 60hz, so thanks for that tip.

Here is the manual of my mobo.. i didnt find any option to do this..
Maybe i overlooked something.. but i guess im just **bleep** out of luck..
The strange thing is.. i dont have 100% cpu anymore, and in steam vr it shows no framedrops but it still pixelates on my like hell...
