  1. That is correct, Rajiv. I'm glad this came up in my talks with Stephen and that he was able to accommodate. When I purchased these from you I had assumed they were compatible by default ( I didn't read Rajiv's description well enough 😁). This modification did come at a small cost.
  2. I did. The cable is very short, at most ~4 inches, and only doubled up on 5V and grounds. The other wires were not connected. Since the wire is so thick I did not feel the need to connect the others and have had zero issues thus far. @Nenon helped guide me: Pin 1 for +3.3v Pin 3 for Ground Pin 4 for +5v Pin 5 for Ground Pin 6 for +5v Pin 8 for PWR-OK Pin 9 for +5Vsb Pin 10 for +12v Pin 16 for PWR-On (Cheap wire here since this is just for the power button function) No JSSG360 since the cable is so short. Here is a pic (its not pr
  3. If mine arrived surely yours isn't too far behind . It is worth the wait! I am using the below cables + a DIY Mundorf Silver/Gold 15.5 awg 24-pin cable.
  4. I ordered this unit in late May 20'. Covid slowed things down quite a bit.
  5. The SR7T arrived today. Its the two rail 19v, 12v option. So, the CPU will receive a dedicated 12v rail and the 19v output will go to the HDPLEX 800w DC-ATX module. Everything powered up without issue. Thanks @austinpopfor the timely sale of your PHD cables. Super excited to give this a listen! I will be comparing the SR7T to the HDPLEX 400w AC-DC SMPS power supply, which actually sounds very good in combination with the HDPLEX 800w DC-ATX device. Until now, this SMPS allowed me to hear subtle differences in kernel types, resources allocation tweaks, mem
  6. For the Asus ROG Strix i z390 from your first build in this thread, will one need to omit the +12v wires from the 24 pin if using a dedicated 12v EPS rail?
  7. Solid build. Still contemplating whether to go i9 9900k or to upgrade to full ATX z490/w480 based board with top tier 10 gen CPU. Leaning towards the latter for the built in remote management functionality. It would be great to not have to drag my server to another room and connect my desktop monitor to play with RAM settings :).
  8. Terrific write-up @bobfa. I was wondering why you were selling the Kii Three's!
  9. @Soul Analogue - A job well done. In admiration of your creativity and technical skills. Do you have access to any of high end commercial offerings to perform comparisons? Also, interested in learning about what you're upgrading from with this build. Cheers! -Rob
  10. I use this exact RAM with the Asus z390-i ROG Srix motherboard. Zero compatibility issues.
  11. I have speced each rail for up to 3A output at 5v with this transformer. giving 5.7V per rail. I misread your question. @Nenon- hopefully you do not mind these posts :). SJ DC3 is a work in progress now and I should have some pictures tomorrow evening.
  12. @jean-michel6 thanks for sharing your experience going the SoC route. I will most likely follow suit as I contemplate my upgrade path from an ITX motherboard an i7 8700T. In other news, I have completed my MPAudio dual output LPSU. It uses a pair of ALS-HPULN modules, Mundorf Silver/Gold 15.5 AWG wire and GX-16 connectors. Output is measure at a perfect 5V. I chose not to shorten the transformer wires in the event that I want to replace it later and re-adjust the module for higher voltage. The intended usecase is for whichever audiophile-specific USB/Etherne
  13. Hi all, I am curious about RT priority for my USB PCI-E card (Startech PCI-E - ASM 3142 chip based). I would like to ensure it is indeed using RT priority and that the onboard USB ports are not getting RT priority. As well as ensuring I am not sharing the IRQ with other devices unnecessarily. Based on the information below, the DAC is connected and appears to be using IRQ 16, so naturally I believe the PCI-E card must be using IRQ 16: I have updated RT priority config as follows: Also, should I have included USB3 instead of i80
  14. Editor should be nano for GentooPlayer.
  15. Has anyone tried applying this DIY Helix concept to DC cables? http://www.image99.net/blog/files/be8de0c383c5434907610d6b55049e69-75.html I have only seen Interconnects and AC power cables outlined there. It may not be applicable to DC cables for reasons beyond my understanding. It is interesting nonetheless. @seeteeyou - thanks for bringing this to my attention.
  16. The one you linked to, without shielding. I did not know he could make 4694R w/ shielding at the time.
  17. Keep the clock powered on if you can. To stabilize, I think the general number was a day or so, since these clocks are generally already used quite a bit. Maybe less. I got the Geistnote Melody cable and it required some break in, and was initially outshined by the Ghent bnc cable. The tables have turned and the Geistnote is now noticably better. Cheers
  18. Thanks @antonellocaroli, Startech Fiber NIC now works with MIN kernels. Things sound very good, better than the similar PF-ST Kernel.
  19. The specs do look very good per my untrained eye. @ around 10hz they are all at least -120dbc/hz at 10Hz. Any info on the form factor? Edit: I see the photos of the form factor. This could be an interesting alternative. Will do some further digging on the thread for pricing info etc.
  20. It would be great if you (or Andrea) could provide some datasheets with specs. Is there a URL? Phase noise specs at 10MHZ appears to be one of the defacto specs which would interest us, also, frequency stability. Perhaps that will allow some of the industry pros (and those of us learning) to weigh in on performance and increase interest level :).
  21. Very informative post! Thank you. Taking a moment to process it all... As for frequencies, we are interested in 25mhz LVCMOS output in this context. It would be great if it were at least possible to equal the (supposed, and unmeasured) -125dbc/hz of my reference clock. As for programmable synthesizers, I would not know where to begin with this approach but it does sound intriguing to research further.
  22. Thank you @Superdad. The BG7TBL does provide an audible improvement in my system feeding the ER, itself powered by the LPS 1.2 @ 12v. Mine came with the FE-180 and not the DAPU. For switches which are not ready to accept reference 10mhz clock input (the Buffalo in this case) something like the CW would seem like an improvement over the stock clocks although I do not know the specs of the included clocks. I'm guessing Crystek or SiTime clocks are the only worthwhile replacements. Aside from the Uber expensive PF clock, and CW clocks, options appear to be a bit slim.
  23. Thanks Nenon, FWIW, I believe @RickyVmeant the Juniper SRX300, which is a router with the Broadcom chipset. @seeteeyoumentioned this as well when I asked the same question a page or so ago.
