Most of us can enjoy music even without placebos.

Use the info tab to check CPU load and temperature. There could be other things happening in your system. Does the library scan started by daphile on startup finish? What if you leave daphile running for 30 minutes and then start playing music? Have you looked at the daphile log files? Does your DAC get hot? Have you tried down sampling hd musiic to reduce the load on the DAC? How about playing the sane song for 30+ minutes from ram (this will place minimal load on daphile).

You only need this horsepower if you intend doing dsd256 upsampling or higher. Otherwise a g4560 would be more than sufficient or an atom in a passive cooled mobo Also have you looked at the i5 8400. The 6 cores are well suited to upsampling, its cheaper and runs cooler. Also you should not over clock but you will need a z370 board.
