Hi Bob, did you had a chance to compare the DCATX adapter plus 200W LPS and the 400W directly connected LPS?

Have anyone tried the HDPLEX chassis + DCATX + JS2 or PH SR7 LPS? and compare this with the proprietary HDPLEX solution?

Roy is currently powering his 8700K server with 2 SR7 rails: a 19V rail powering an HDPlex DC-ATX converter, and a separate 12V rail powering the CPU (EPS).

Even with the 8700K server powered by an HDPlex 400W ATX LPSU and with no special clocking outside of my tX-USBultra, I prefer the big server to the i7 NUC but as I have figured out a way to independently power both the 8700K CPU and ATX motherboard (using a DC-ATX converter) with SR7 rails, the i7 NUC has now been officially retired.

 

He finds this combo far exceeds the HDPlex 400W ATX LPS, even though this has separate rails for the ATX (3.3, 5, and 12V) and EPS (12V).

The direct HDPlex 400 is better to my ear.  Less harsh. 

 

The js2 is 12 v and will not run the dc to atx

 

i do not have an sr7

Do you know how many Amps is Roy's SR7 EPS (12V) rail? And does he have TurboBoost enabled on the 8700K?

I have changed my system design and I am now running this Xeon based system as my server/streamer directly connected to my Kii Three Speakers.  The server is powered by an HDPLEX 400 supply.  The Kii Control is fed via USB using a Ghent JSSG USB cable to the ISORegn and USBPCP.  I am running the ISORegen on my LPS1.2 power supply.

 

The software on the Xeon is Eyphony OS with their Stylus player. The music is stored on my NAS and there is a test copy of the data on a spinning disk connected to the server.  I am A/B ing the system to see which sounds better.  I have a “fancy” USB card on the way from China to see how that works.
