That would be great if it works! The only thing missing is a fan. I would cut a hole at the top or the back and stick a fan over it.
I would love to know how it manages the IRQs...

I am about to order 1. As soon as I get it, Ill let you guys know. I'm sick of Magma since my cable broke. It costs me 125 EURO to get a new cable, so this looks very promising :D

Please do that, Jimmy.
I'll upgrade to a Penryn Quad as soon as they are available, and this one would solve all my slot problems - if it works with UAD.
Thanks,
Cooper

You don't need a fan. A UAD-1 card only consumes abnout 12W. 4 of them onyl consumes 50W and the heatsinks are plenty.

Don't forget you'll need at least a 5A power supply if you've got 4 cards. Your standard wall wart won't cut it. Use the 12V feed from a computer supply. They're cheap enough. Or even run a feed from your computer's supply if you've got any spare power.

but yeah it's a great find ( if it works ). Magma was always a stupid price for what it actually is. Even the host card is nearly £300 in the UK.

I suspect a number of us are waiting with baited breath, I can't make a move on a new mobo until I know one way or the other - if I already had a mobo with PCIe, I'd have taken a punt.

I have a friend who ordered one to use it with a new Quad Mac Pro. His UAD-1 seemed to work without problems, but none of the other cards he tried. (RME MADI and Hammerfall). He did not try with a PC.
