Just out of curiosity - PC specs ?
As a part of my favorite VR game community in it's discord server I know couple of players with Vive Pro + wireless and they have no issues. Also keep in mind that these very same players are in competitive league of that game so they would hardly accept such flaws. I'm just trying to say that there might be a solution to your problems, as the only known issues regarding the wireless is the incompatibility with AMD CPU's as far as I'm aware of

You better hear what official support has to say about it. I am no expert but my two cents here is that CPU and RAM might be holding you back. If you look at the wireless page on the bottom there's a minimum requirements and where it says i5-4th generation. Trust me this thing is taxing on CPU not just GPU. Also you have more than enough RAM but at slow speed ... If you have a friend with better specs just go try it there. "also keep in mind that so many people with i7 8700 with 1080ti are having same issues as me" - do not trust anyone on the web" usually I am not getting into argument unless I know what I am talking. Issues sure , lots of issues are resolved by software fixes and lots of issues are caused by the mixture of software that may affect the hardware ie. GPU drivers , Steam updates , even Vive updates ... my point is that I guarantee for a couple of friends with wireless and Vive Pro (which is more demanding) have a more than enough to play competitive shooter in VR. So, best thing to do first is to go to a friend with better CPU and faster RAM and see how it goes.

Well this comming Monday my friend will get the Original vive (same as i have). but he has bought a new powerful PC, I will take my wireless there and install, lets see how it plays out.
I will send another msg here to let you know the result (also to help others looking for a solution) on Tuesday.
Well yes i know you are correct, cant listen to many people in internet, they might not know how to troubleshoot properly, Im no genius of any kind but at least I am into computers since Commodore Vic20 ;), I programmed back then and also worked in I.T. Support, of course nothing of that is helping me now ;)
I will test on Monday, I do really hope his system works well with vive wireless, if not I will be relactant to spend £2500-£3000 on a new MB/CPU/RAM/VGA, but if his system works well with it I go for it, anyways I know I need an update regadless of VR or not.
Just one note, yes HTC recommends a higher CPU as min, and we all know the having the min specs for anything is not good news, and mine is under, so well, but also note that following fact, if I was wired I would not need any hardware upgrades, yes it will be better but not required since i can play all VR titles very well, so this brings me the question i read elsewhere "the wireless adapter should not load the CPU so much in any case, but it does, its not my VGA i know that, i tested, its the CPU, maybe there is more to it yes, but the adapter is not suppose to tax CPU like that, unless there are conflicts that I am not aware.
I will test on Monday, as for me now I have to put it back to wired ;(, with my current setup there is no solution, i dont mind playing Pavlov at 100%ss instead of 180/200, but not being able to play Dirt Rally (see blocky pixels/stutters) in VR Wireless is what finally has pushed me to remove it, hopefully my friends PC will run good bringing some relief to me, if not I will just sell it ;(
I will report back, and many thanks for your help, I apriciate it! have a nice day.
