"est: CPU supports Enhanced Speedstep, but is not recognized."

I see this in my system log for the NAS shown in my sig, and have searched a while trying to see if it matters without success. My processor does throttle as low as 448 MHz in the System page, so it looks like powerd is working, but the server still burns a painful 105W at idle and nearly 200W on load. I realize the platform is an antique (like 2005), but it was a brand new server never powered up until 2 years ago. Server grade hardware for free was hard to pass up. Originally it was a Celeron box and it used about the same amount of power before I changed out the processor, and it seems to act the same whether "power saving" is enabled or disabled in the BIOS. Probably nothing I can do except limit uptime, but thought I'd ask if anyone had a thought. Thanks for reading.

processors from that era did not have any real power management.

any current atom is way faster and uses a lot less power.

Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, I agree, but free is good. I guess I'll just limit uptime. Too many 5K RPM fans! I use it for backups and MiniDLNA only and it's just me. I have quite a bit of local online storage already.

My other NAS is a Y2K vintage Maxtor NAS4100 1U server with upgraded processor (p3-1000), 512MB RAM and IDE drives, but still perks along. :lol:

Just a thought, though, if FreeBSD sees the feature why wouldn't it support it? Or is the feature itself obsolete?

Oh, maybe it's the motherboard that doesn't support the feature, since the server actually predates the processor by a year or so... The 660 was one of the first to support EIST.

the p4 power consumption was so out of hand that intel abandoned the entire line and used the p3 as a basis for the core 2 development.

I agree it's obsolete, but it's just a hobby platform for me. I know I could do better, but I still like my antiques. Don't get me started on my full-house Everex Cube! Thanks for the replies. ;)

Hey, thanks! I'm surprised my searches didn't find that link.
