Just curious: DSP? Do you have an extra board?

This is something I hadn't considered, seeing that 800MHz is the lowest speed setting for my CPU.

Right now JACK 0.125.0rc1 idles at 17-18% CPU and has done so since last night. If that doesn't hold, I will try changing the govenor.

Thank you all, for your help and guidance.
