    We've upgraded our CPU to Ivy Bridge from Sandy Bridge. Same version, but some benchmarks online showed it to be a lot more powerful (The price difference was relatively close, we've been considering it for a month, and jumped last night). We've also done a software update, which included a ton of updated packages varying from the network to glibc. We've also updated our kernel, which has a new Intel CPU scheduler, hopefully it helps.

      Well, they replaced the CPU (I was under the impression it was a chassis thing, and they weren't creating their own products...), found out it requires a BIOS update, so now they're putting a old CPU in the socket to flash the BIOS, and reinstalling the new one. The initial replacement took 40 minutes; I'm not quite sure how long this is going to take.

          I regret ever going to Sandy, IVY works fantastic so it should rock PF as well. Thanks Kyle!
