Vive wireless adapter high temperature

Re: Vive wireless adapter high temperature

Fantastic fan mod Kleus_Balut. I suspect it will only be a matter of time before some company starts selling a similar piece for $20 or $30, similar to Vive N Chill.

M_Temperture? From the range of 8x to 91 degrees. 

 

A side note: I have fair amount of hair.

What says the logs temperature at the time you took the pictures ?
After how long the headset was running when you took the temperature ?

It was after 2 hours, and m-temp got up to 94.

Mine hit 94 degrees Fahrenheit only after 30min of use.

Is that issue fixed ? ( don't talk to me about a fan )

Re: Vive wireless adapter high temperature

No, and chances are it never will be.

My solution is several layers of gold heat reflecting foil tape and a thicker aftermarket audio strap foam.

Are these temps really hot enough to cause discomfort for most people? Yes it gets warm (96 degrees only after 30min of use and with the DAS). I'm bald and play for hours and doesn't bother me. Maybe I have a higher pain tolerance

Re: Vive wireless adapter high temperature

I think my discomfort was caused by the flaps. Reorienting them fixed the pain issue.
