Put all the jumpers back in and hooked up molex power, and its working. Absolutely not the way I want to use it, but its a start. Time to play.

One more evidence proving the DAC needs 5V dc if an external LPS is to be used.

 I tried two different dac's and both required the 5 volt power. I also am using an external drive connected to the other usb on Jcat card. It also had to have 5 volts to work. I have two copies of the sound files; one on external via usb, one in the computer via sata. Using the usb version is a little better for sure. For gaming the sound is much more detailed, bass much cleaner, with added depth. This card is an amazing upgrade. Excellent work Jcat!

Would there be any benefit in moving the femto usb from PCI-E 2.o x1 slot to 3.0 x16 graphics card slot (if I get a cpu with integrated graphics)?

It depends how these PCI E slot is connected, you'd have to check a block diagram of the motherboard to see if connection is different. If the PCIe 3.0 slot has direct connection to CPU lane whereas PCIe 2.0 slot is connected via PCH then it makes sense to move to PCIe 3.0 slot. 

 

Best regards,

Marcin
