  1. @Nenon any luck getting the noratel transformers? I seem to have everything else I need for the v2 supply.
  2. So as I understand it, wifi to oppo upnp (bypassing server) to oppo dac (internally) sounds better than server to oppo as dac? I really think you'll hear a big uptick after replacing oppo with a contemporary dac and removing wifi, but interesting that the oppo solution sounds so good!
  3. Agreed on this. They are filled with a fluid that boils, then moves to the cool side and condenses, this is how heat is transferred. The base of cpu cooler that neon designed is also not solid copper but also filled with fluid, this greatly improves the efficiency of heat transfer and is why it could not be soldered to the cpu cooler portion that fits the cooling pipes.
  4. This is not the case for all intel cpus. I have PF I2s bridgeworking with an intel xeon silver 4210. This means Nenon's upcoming diy dual cpu server should also work with the pf I2s cards.
  5. Nenon, is the taiko diy case still planned to be big enough for this v3 power supply and the motherboard and the dc/atx? Or are you now thinking it better to separate into 2 chassis?
  6. Also breaking in my taiko dc/atx into a single 4210 xeon with 621 chipset, power by 2 rail Paul Hynes SR7t. More relaxing. Sound stage is similar, but no longer feels artifactual. Sweetness or realness of the decay on notes. Reduction in glare, though there was little previously. Looking forward to making and utilizing a new eps cable to replace my ghent cable that uses adapters.
  7. Tapped a new hole, used this drill bit: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071HQG8SP/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_GET3GHHEM38Y1ZG087SM?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
  8. Interesting, I have the opposite experience. If I power both at the same time, no boot. I have to power on EPS about 5 seconds after I power on ATX.
  9. I'll try later this week when back in town.
  10. I have this motherboard and the silver xeon 4210. I'm also waiting for a taiko dc/atx and I have a 2 rail ph sr7t. I just received 4gb x 12 ecc wt ram from Apacer for my upcoming dual cpu build... I could try these with my current server and use these bios customizations... but I'm a noob on these things. I'm open to instructions! @Nenon, with the latest info from extreme-land regarding improved player software and usb connection decreasing need for network upgrades, do you think that delta between dual cpu and single cpu systems might decrease? Since the dual cpu system is designed to decrease cpu use of network resources for the "endpoint cpu", perhaps most of that could be taken care of with software. Either way, this is somewhat testable but a big investment.
  11. Taiko is selling a dc to atx converter. Likely to replace some of the hdplex models in the field.
  12. There will be a slew of hdplex 800w and 400w dc to atx converters hitting the used market soon. I'd try one of those. I dont know enough about your motherboard to say if you would need to change it.
  13. Thanks for the heads up, this just got delivered!
  14. UberBUSS by PIAudio - wanted View Classified I'm looking for a recent PIAudio UberBUSS with at least 4 (standard) P&S 5362A receptacles. Of course I'd consider one with upgraded receptacles.

  16. The only cheaper alternative I am personally familiar with would be an external option. I have seen these go for about 250 used, I thought it did a good job when I used it with a fanless nuc streamer. I replaced the sonore unit with a matrix one, that was frankly similar. Gotta power the sonore unit though if I remember correctly. Hopefully other folks chime in here. https://www.sonore.us/ultraDigital.html
  17. https://www.pinkfaun.com/shop/bridge/45-2909-spdif-bridge.html#/88-spdif_options-spdif_aes_ebu_clock_out_bnc/193-additional_clock_for_bridge-ultra_ocxo/195-bracket_height-792_mm_3118_inch I use their I2s card, it is much better than usb out from the motherboard. I also power it with a farad super3.
  18. That is unfortunate news as the prospect of using TAS was my biggest reason to try the dual cpu project.
  19. I replaced a p8 keces with a PH SR7t to power my diy xeon 4210 server/streamer. Big upgrade. No idea if better that non-turbo. P8 was better than p3 on the prior fanless nuc.
  20. Any idea if this will be sold to non-extreme users?
  21. Try as I might I can find this on mouser. Do have a link to a supplier?
  22. I don’t know if the pink faun i2s card will work with this cpu. Many intel cpus won't be compatible such as the i9-9900 series. Perhaps someone will chime in. You might also ask pink faun directly.
