  1. I want to shout-out to @Nenon about this great, valuable report/pointer. After reading this, I decided to find some time over the weekend to try out these Apacer ECC UDIMM modules I have on hand as well, replacing the already very impressive Apacer Non-ECC UDIMMs, after doing some quick comparisons, I also like what I am hearing with these RAMs very much!
  2. If by assigning static IP address not fixing the issue, check the MAC address on both devices to see if both are having the same address. You might need to change the device name on one of them to something else like Audiolinux 2, assign static address to server, but leave DHCP with endpoint.
  3. Pending on what logic chip is used, normally for CMOS, logic high voltage can be between 3.5V and 5V, where TTL can be between 2V and 5V, but certainly, try to keep it as close to 5V as possible.
  4. Another basic question, what is the EPS power supply rating?
  5. Thank you, that is what I am suspecting. I will find some time over the weekend and see if I can get them to work in my server.
  6. I am curious whether ECC RAM that you used on Intel i9900K CPU for testing done earlier, is that CPU dependant or Motherboard dependant. I am also tempted to try the ECC RAMs on my server with a different Motherboard but sibling CPU (i9900KS).
  7. As a follow up on the impression from adding JCAT Net Card FEMTO to the chain, the short version is, it is absolutely improved the SQ by a clear margin. I installed the card earlier today, and have been doing burn-in for few hours, although longer burn-in time is needed still, but I am very happy with the result already, and really think it is a good compliment to EtherRegen.
  8. Good to know. I am working on similar experiment, but different power supplies.
  9. I have not get the chance to try it myself, but working on it. I speculate better SQ will be from better/cleaner power to EPS(CPU). The combination below should reveal either SBooster is better than HDPlex 200W 19V/10A or the other way around, and hopefully, not the same. SBooster BOTW ECO MkII 19v/1.75A => HDPlex 800W DC-ATX group 2 => EPS HDPlex 200W 19V/10A => HDPlex 800W DC-ATX group 1 => ATX
  10. I am using copper this time, but working on the silver version next. The DC-ATX just arrived, so I will have them installed this week to see how they sound, once I have the silver wires here, I will be putting a set together to have a comparison.
  11. No, this will not work, as HDPlex 800W DC-ATX converter require group-1 and group-2 input power connected in order to have EPS power output from both groups. One could connect both inputs and have just group-2 EPS output connected to CPU, but whether this will provide better SQ is yet to be determined.
  12. Here is another diagram with the same 20 pin ATX pin orientation shown in the build.
  13. I am not OP, but some information might be useful... A DC-ATX converter is using switched-mode DC-to-DC converters converting one DC voltage level to another, which may be higher or lower, by storing the input energy temporarily and then releasing that energy to the output at a different voltage, where voltage regulators show in this build is a high quality linear power supply setup. Switching conversion is more power-efficient (typical efficiency is 75% to 98%) than linear voltage regulation, generates less heat, so they are smaller in physical size, to make them simpler to install, but they also generates more electrical noise then linear power supply.
  14. OP did say the wiring connections are as follows.
  15. Not this time, only compared the two NUCs mentioned, which were using the same OS and configuration. What built-in PSUs are these? Are you referring to the included AC adapters like below picture? If yes, I changed them to a 19V LPS.
