Got all the stuff yesterday! Put it together and I'm loving this thing.
I do have some minor issues that I need to work on. No show stoppers.
1.) I get an error (firmware bug cpu 0 invalid threshold interrupt offset) when it boots, after the initrd loads and before that "cannot something
file delete" thing, that can be ignored comes up. It doesn't seem to impact anything but I wonder what it is. (sorry about the blurry image, it comes and goes so fast, my phone can't focus quick enough)
2.) Temperature of my FX-6300 cpu seems to run a little warm. Just running the BIOS it can goto 45C doing nothing. While using PCLINUX. It can go from 50c to quick spikes of 90c, not sustained. It just floats around 50c - to 60c. Seems to be common for the FX-6300. The funny thing is when I touch the heatsink its ice cold. The first time I immediately yanked the heatsink off (with the power off of course) and felt the cpu chip and it was cold. So I'm confused how it could have been at 90c. It should have felt at least warm. I just put it back together with some new thermal goo. People have complained about the stock heatsinks but the cold chip makes me wonder what it is really going on?
3.) My 1866 memory reports as 1600 in the BIOS? Why!?
4.) Memory DIMMS don't show in Hardware list within PCLINUX (mini-me and using 3.2.18 pae kernel), I just see the cached memory.
5.) Hard drive has too much space. (I'm use to a 40G harddrive in my old linux pc) I didn't know how to partition 1TB. Sheesh.... OK 100gb for root, swap pffft!, 890+gb for HOME... LOL.
