  1. So I bought i7-7700 Kaby lake anf I am optimizing Windows 10 for audio performance. What I found online was the best way to use CPU was to set the power option to High Performance and min and max CPU to 100%. This would leave me with the CPU to work at 3.6GHz at all times. Intel updated speed shift to v2 with Kaby Lake, and I wondered if I should start using it i.e. will the CPU at constant base frequency work better/faster/smoother than with Speed Shift enabled? I am using this PC for Roon and HQPlayer.
  2. I am trying to put together a CAPS Carbon music server and notice that some have used 64-bit Windows 8 Pro instead of the recommended 32-bit version even though, strictly speaking, the Intel DN2800MT motherboard does not support any 64-bit OS. Just wondering, has anyone encountered any problem with the 64-bit Win8 OS?
  3. Anyone successfully installed a graphics driver on Caps V3 (Intel DN2800MT) motherboard ? There are no Windows 8 graphic drivers for those boards available AFAIK. I tried installing the supplied Win 7/32 driver - it installed just normal, but then I noticed that it makes the system crash when choosing some default desktop apps (like weather for example). JRiver or Youtube (even at 1080p) works just fine with that driver. I tried reinstalling the system twice (to find out what driver causes the system to crash). On a generic Win 8 graphics driver (no DN2800MT graphics driver installed) eveything works just fine.
