Re: How do I overclock my i7-4790 ?

In my experience, the potential extra 10% CPU power you might get, is not really worth the risk/hastle/instability - Just saying :) Maybe this is correct - But if you wanted to.... Is it the 4790 or the 4790 K -? You would need to get into the BIOS and learn how it works - this may involve another ...

Re: Level matching query

Well Garyb, The Red Box's @ £300 each GBP just to match the level is pricey compared to Ferrofish A16 AE @ £500 for a full 16 I/O - There may be a cheaper alternative - I'll keep looking And Janni, I've already got enough PCI cards for now - though if a 15 DSP board arose with ADAT I'd be tempted an...

Level matching query

Hello Scopers, I'd like to run something passed the tech folks here about signal flow and level matching. I've thought this through but would like to check if this is correct or not. I've got 2 Luna 2 boxes & a Fostex VC-8 - all unbalanced consumer level. Sonifex have the RB-UL4 - direct link for co...

FX8350 has really dropped in price now so 70 $£ for not far off 3770 K performance (standard clocks) is good -

Re: New Motherboard with PCI for AMD FX6350

Hello guys, a friend of mine is searching for a new Motherboard with at least 1 PCI-Slot (for a RME HDSP), but better would be 2 because I've got a Pulsar2 left. His CPU is an AMD FX6350 6 core 3,9GHz. 4 RAM Slots and 6 SATAs and onboard GRFX would be cool. Since I'm on MAC and use an old HP XW6200...

Re: Intel C236 Build

Hi dawman, Are you talking about your build of C236 with E3-1275 V6? - (not the iBase Q370)? I've already got the Asus P10S-V/4L - Which could be used for other purposes other than Scope - I've gone for the E3-1245 V6 as it was quite a lot cheaper than the 1275-V6 How could your machine work OK for ...

Re: Best mobo and cpu combo

Wow fraz, the Asus H310 TUF looks amazing !!! I've been searching this forum for ages to renew my old config with 3 PCI boards, for something newer that may allow me to lower my ULLI latency, and have more juice for my DAW. Currently I have ULLI on the medium setting (6ms in/out I think, so a littl...

Re: Intel C236 Build

Hello, You think your 4790 is old - What about the poor old Q9450 on 775 !!! I've gone for one of these https://www.asus.com/uk/Commercial-Servers-Workstations/P10S-V-4L/ It's on the C236 chipset, 4 LAN & 4 PCI slots - to go with a Xeon E3-1245 V6 @ 3.7 Ghz - 4.1 Ghz boost - This is of course with t...

Thank you gentlemen, now we have some useful info to sticky in here. What you stated was exactly my concern, that we have the same questions asked over & over and yet no real guide to summarize things. The site owners could throw something together for the PCI cards (sticky)-Divide things up- Intel...

Re: Best mobo and cpu combo

Actually there are so many options even today to run the Scope cards - Not as many as a year ago due to NEW Z97 / Z170 not being available. The iBase option on Q370 is the same price as HEDT (high end desktop) at 300 - I'm quite taken with Asus TUF H310 (OK it's consumer) and also like the Asus P10S...
