Eleven at a buffer of 64 is broken. I appears that for eleven to function it needs audio fed into it. At first I thought this was denormaliztion....remember those days?

Anyways, Dither will not fix the problem. Can you reproduce this Guitardom? Run Eleven at a buffer of 64 with not audio file on the track. Watch your CPU meter. Then put an audio file on that track and watch your meter. Perhaps I am trippin but it seems very strange.

Oh, did I forget to mention that at a buffer of 1024 I am running a mix

50 audio tracks
EQ and Comp on almost all

3 aux tracks. Verb, Delay and Modulation

11 guitar tracks running 11 all at the same time

CPU meter

%53

If eleven worked at a buffer of 64 I could run this session there....

I'm about ready to pull the trigger on this setup! So how about a checklist for proper setup(including BIOS) for this madness...errr...magnificence? BTW, how much performance difference would you expect between 3x1gig vs. 3x2 gig of RAM(assuming XP only "seeing" 3.2GHZ or so). Trying to decide if its worth the extra $70-100 to go 6 gig over 3 gig. With this kind of performance, who needs 64bit?

I am done for the night, but the system did not crash once tonight. More responsive than the tyan and WAY faster. Not one problem, even though the ram was set to the wrong speed at first (thanks Mykhal!)

The only issue I had was Eleven at a buffer of 64 and the use of inserts 6-10 which to me are Pro Tools bugs, not the computers......

hey albee, i am in the middle of testing right now, matching kris's specs. my numbers are through the roof compared to his and the only real difference is ram and video card, so i would say yes on the ram!! i will be posting numbers here soon

the bios setting will vary with computer, so there is a variable, but if you go our route, i will be glad to help. i only had to change a couple things. will run it a bit longer before the oc'ing starts, but why????? do i really need that much more power??????

About 77 or so Dverbs between the 3G and the 6G of ram. kris75 and guitardom are using DDR 3 1333 ram. I myself will be getting DDR 3 1600 so you'll see even more overhead.

The Dverb test guitardom just shared with me at a buffer of 64 is jaw dropping. He'll post soon.

Yes. OC to 4Ghz and run the new Dverb at 64. Apples to Apples comparison to that old overpriced technology.
