I've come across an example where someone brought up that powerd when not set to maximum was causing latency spikes in their network.

Do you lot use it on it's HiAdaptive or Normal mode?

I personally use it on Maximum right now for the full potential of the machine but I am wondering if I'm really just gimping myself in power cost.

I'm running the edge router/firewall on an old PC rig of mine.

i5-3570k
z77a-g45
16GB 1600Mhz DDR3
120GB SSD
4 Intel Gigabit Desktop Adapters for 3 seperate LANs, 1 with a VLAN for IPTV.

Machine is for a torrent server, webserver, gaming and general home computing useage, IPTV, Wifi etc.

300/300 network used with HFSC.

I have mine running on adaptive with a 1Gig fiber connection and multiple vlans. Never noticed any issues. I have multiple servers running behind the firewall as well. Some for outside things like games and teamspeak. The CPU is an E3-1231 V3. Been running for a few years and never had an issue as described. Not sure why it would effect anyhting. It's not like the CPU gets much actual load unless you are doing a lot of scanning/inspecting of packets.

Do you have any more details on what seems to cause these issues in relation to the power settings? Maybe some decent writeups?

@thread

I'm in the process of building out a new (and physical) pfSense box to replace the virtual one currently in service. Due to space constraints, I am limited to a 1U rackmount case, so I have my eye on one of these. Everything else I'm familiar with, but I'm trying to gauge the appropriate level of CPU performance. My current Internet connection is 70Mb/20Mb VDSL and I'll be running at least one connection to a commercial VPN provider.

Since the case is 1U, cooling options will be limited so I can't choose any CPU which runs too hot and I'm guessing I should be looking at a clock speed of ~2GHz or so for at least decent encryption performance. I'm not afraid to dip into the secondhand market either, so recommendations (or at least experiences) will be welcome.

EDIT
I found this link which gives an estimated performance scale. I just need to go shopping on eBay now for something which supports AES-NI...

My first pfsense box was in a 1U mitx case. The Atom CPU got so hot I had to cut a hole in the case above the CPU and install a fan over the hole. It eventually died and I replaced it with an Intel i3-6100T and put it in a 2U mitx case and everything is much better.

Nice to see people are still watching this thread. Based on your post, I did a search on Intel's Ark database and found the i5-6400T. I think this will serve me for quite a while and the 35W TDP is decent; should be fairly easy to cool even in a 1U. Would you happen to know a decently-priced mini-ITX board? It doesn't need dual-LAN because I'll be adding a quad-port NIC anyway.

EDIT:
mini-itx.com seems to be a decent resource for all things mini-ITX.


EDIT2:
OK, so far this is what I've put together:

ASRock H170M-ITX/DL
Intel i5-6400T (used, ebay)
Corsair ValueSelect 4GB 2133MHz
Samsung 128GB 2.5" SATA SSD (used, ebay)
Dell (Broadcom) Quad-Port Ethernet PCIe x4 (used, ebay)

I'm using a Gigabyte H270N-Wifi. It has dual Intel nic's.

Many thanks for that. I think if I pair it with an Atheros-based mPCIe WiFi card, it'll work nicely as an AP.

Forgot to ask, was that board ever in your 1U case? I've seen a couple YT videos where the I/O shield doesn't fit...

No, it's only been in a 2U case.

While im sure it looks nicer with a nice little rack unit, these are way better price/performance:
