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.

16GB 1600Mhz DDR3
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?
