Linux PowerClamp driver for setting power/temperature limits

This might be interesting to SPCR folks who run a Linux system: http://lwn.net/Articles/528124/ It's a new driver in the works that allows enforcing a configurable amount of idle time for the CPU. In a comment on the article, the code author notes: We have a simple userspace app for example that can...

I was just looking at the pic and all I saw was regular RAM slots, not SODIMM like the text says. Download the manual from my link if you want to be totally sure. Oh yes I see what you mean. The linuxdevices article says SODIMM yet it is clearly DIMM in the specs, photo and manual. Must be a mistake.

Available in single or dual core versions. This other article implies that the board consumes only 4w (or 8w for dual core): http:/...

That Dell RM112 looks amazing. According to it's "80 plus" testing report the efficiency keeps improving as load get lower, even at 20%. Does anyone know any more about this PSU? Has anyone seen anything else like this? Better than 90% efficiency when the system is idling at 51w seems streets ahead ...
