Keeping RME Hammerfall 9652 in modern build? Audio Interfaces

Keeping RME Hammerfall 9652 in modern build? [solved]

Hi all,

I want to build a slave PC with 64GB of RAM for playing a LOT of string samples. I'm aiming for an i7-7700k chip.

Everything about that is readily done except my PCI card RME Hammerfall 9652 sound cards (I own five of them!).

Has anyone found an adapter / riser that allows you to use the RME cards successfully in a music PC? A buddy of mine spotted this:

StarTech PEX1PCI1R PCI Express to PCI Riser Card x1 for Intel 1U IPC Server

And I'm willing to try it, but thought it best to ask if anyone has a solution for this?

Thank you!



found an ASRock board with a PCI slot. Z270 Pro has one PCI slot and can handle the i7-7700k and 64GB of RAM. Home and dry.

I know this thread is a few months old but I'm in a similar situation w/ a RME Digiface & just want to say Thank You for posting the solution you came up with.

This looks like a good MB and fairly up to date even w/ the PCI slot.

My Audio PC is 7 years still running strong but it's time to update a few things and figure why not build a new PC while I'm at it.

If anyone that happens to read this and has another Motherboard they think I should check out... please mention it.

I know RME has a PCIe card for the Digiface / Multiface & that's an option. Will wait until I need it... my latency is good and have no issues what so ever

Thanks again JohnG1
