  1. Ok, you have a point. I have been thinking CLC filter in my head all along and that is how I am planning to implement it with the Taiko DC-atx. I will let Nenon clarify. But even with CLC filter, the question still remains weather a 10mH/5A choke be sufficient ?
  2. don’t think we are talking about LC filter here. All discussions are around CLC. So, yes it’s a capacitor input filter.
  3. yes, it is. The question was if a 10mH 5A sufficient for the amount of current draw needed for these servers.
  4. Originally the suggestion was to use the CLC (which is nothing but a pi filter), then CLCLC and finally CLCLCCC for the ultimate 🙂
  5. What is the circular thing beside the Mundrof ? That seems like a choke as well ?
  6. It does. The Xeon’s consume about 3A. Unlike the core i series, they are designed to be a workhouse with a steady consumption and doesn’t have current spikes like the gaming CPUs.
  7. how about this monster at 72lbs ? 🤪 https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Hammond-Manufacturing/195R20?qs=7rwefYdqV%2FZHBBiCJpS93w%3D%3D On a serious note, I am not sure why Nenon picked a 5A choke here. I tried that choke a while back with a 21v/10A rail and it didn't work but I am running a i9-10900k while Nenon is experimenting with dual Xeon. So power requirements can be drastically different, especially with i9-10900k on Turbo and they also have very different base clock. However, if I am not mistaken the dual Xeon consumes atleast a constant 12v/6A. I am sure Nenon
  8. I suspect something changed in the default settings with the new bios. So even if you have a fixed core ratio, other parameters might be making it behave like a turbo with a ceiling of 4.6ghz. They employ all sorts of crazy algo to save power, which is what normal folks want but audiophiles want it to run like crazy 🤪 What is your CPU power bios settings ? Some c-states, speed shift and speed steps comes in the way. Try disabling them and see if that works.
  9. The JCAT XE requires 5V/1.5A. The Optimo is maxed out at 3A and JS2 is guaranteed at 5A continuos at any output setting. I can take that they will sound different, maybe the Optimo will sound better with JCAT XE but don't think it will be underpowered with JS2. Something isn't adding up here....
  10. I agree that DC cables can make or break the sound. I have a JS2 sitting around but I haven't tried powering the JCAT XE with it yet. I am curious what DC cable worked for you ? Not sure I understand. JS2 slightly underpowered for JCAT XE ? That psu can crank [email protected] continuous.
  11. I am curious in this comparison. have you gotten a chance yet ?
  12. this one is 805. The 211 is the one I have been lurking around and would probably be my next SET :-)
  13. Depends on the motherboard design. In most of the Supermicro server motherboards and also Asus C621, you would have to - they are just wired in parallel. Most, if not all, gaming motherboards, they are independent rails for a reason and it would not boot if you don't connect the EPS since there is no power to CPU.
  14. Interesting. Still lot of unknowns with the Taiko but based on your experience I have a feeling that feed supply is equally important to bring out the best of this DC-ATX.
  15. My gut feeling is that the entire motherboard, including the Solarflare, is benefiting from the Taiko. With good power every small little things eventually adds up to provide a better sound.
