RE: A funny thing happened after cPlay 2.0b33

Still operating w/o the dreadful noise but with a tradeoff (there always seems to be a tradeoff). When I try to lower my clock and / or core voltage the system gets unstable...it boots but collapses in a horrible loud sound after playing awhile. As long as I can can decouple my dac it causes no harm but once I didn't and it burned up my amp (since repaired under warranty). But it looks like Ryelands was correct my problem all along has been marginal stability. Only argument counter is that I have tried 2 mobo's, 2 cpu's with same results.

What really improved my static-ee noise I believe was loading my I2S lines with 22 ohm resistors. System got way more stable after this (wrt to the metallics or static-ee noise that is).

Anyway I have a good work around and as long as I run 147 hcc and .875 volts I'm ok.

And I should repeat cPlay 2.0b33 also is the least susceptible to static-ee/metallic noise since
cPlay 2.0b18.

What this all really means I'll leave to the computer experts but it at least offers my experience to others who may have this issue.
