    Anyone else recently upgrade to Pfsense 2.4.5? I upgraded last night and my memory usage went from 10%-ish of 2GB to 75% consistently post upgrade. This is all very different from 2.4.4.

    Bose factory outlet sale on ebay *warm*

    The Bose factory outlet is selling new and refurbed items for decent amounts off. I know Bose is loved or hated brand for most, but for these prices I do believe the performance of some their products well worth it.

    Pico PSUs from Minibox the only option?

    Are Pico PSUs from Minibox the only compact PSUs? Don't get me wrong I've used them for years and they rock the house for low power builds. I don't know any others that make a ton of SKUs the way they do, 80w, 120w, etc. But I'd like choice if possible.

    So I recently built a new pfsense box and went from 2.3.x in 32-bit to 2.4.x with 64-bit. Holy crap what happened to the awesome RRD graphs? Everything else is awesomesauce in 2.4 except the graphs! What happened? Anyone else feel this way post 2.4 pfsense?

    Low wattage appliance builds, router/NAS

    I just completed my third hardware build for pfsense. Pfsense is going to require aes-ni for version 2.5 so I decided to get ahead of the curve. The Ivy Bridge i5 3470T was the cheapest and lowest wattage AES-NI processor I could find at the time. I got it all together. Specs are in my sig...

    Ryzen 3 true quad core?

    Does anyone know if Ryzen 3 will be a true quad core? I ask because much of the issue with Ryzen and gaming comes from the intra-core communications latency on the 8 core packages. I have a feeling a quad core die to help with this issue. I know the memory controller latency is also a large...

    any new MOCA standards on the horizon?

    I currently use MOCA bridges throughout my house because they are awesome. It helps that my FIOS router had one built in so I had to buy one fewer to use MOCA in the first place. I currently get 60 Mbps throughput on them which is great. It's more then enough bandwidth for the majority of...

    I'm sure this debate has already happened and I'll gladly take a redirect if it already has. What is the advantage of using hyperthreading and allowing the processor to schedule multiple threads on it's cores versus no hyperthreading and letting the windows scheduler do the same thing?
