Cable link terrible lag

Honored Guest

I’ve been trying to resolve this for months now, to clarify I’ve never had an issue with oculus cable link before then one day it completed busted. Terrible lag as down to 10FPS Annoying screen tearing every few seconds. And incredibly high latency, I’ve tried contacting oculus support and sadly although helpful in the past have had no suggestions that resolved this, I’ve sent another email but as stated with no resolving suggestions. I began to look deeper and found out this is an issue that occurs quite rare but often leading to the same issues as I stated. Thus wanted to ask any community members who have had this issue for any solutions to this irritating issues I’ve had to deal with for months now. I’ve tried factory resetting all my PC reinstalling windows buying a new cable with a 2.2GBPS speed, from thunderbolt 3 outlet to my headset. I’ve tried reinstalling and repairing my software, I sent back my headset to be repaired and refurbished to no avail, and have tried uninstalling all apps and games/ softwares  as-well as close all programs when starting vr. This is not a hardware issue as I’ve had a sleek and smooth 60FPS on my monitor every time  when starting games and only in the headset does this glitches appear, I do not believe it could be my cable but am unsure due to it being new and faster than old cables, and I highly doubt it could be my headset but who knows. It has been a nightmare and chore spending hours a day finding no solution so I’m please asking anyone who has info on this issues to please suggest and solution to this as it has barred me from playing pc link for months.
