Desktop PC I am using for six years

The PC I am using right now is more than six years.  I checked my blog and found the post of flash the bios in Feb 2013. I did a search in my Gmail. Wow, I found the receipt which I made the order on NCIX. NCIX has closed for years already.

There are three items. All are running on my desktop now.

  • Kingston Hyper X  KHX 1600C9D3K2/8GB  (RAM)
  • Western Digitial Caviar Blue 1TB (HDD)
  • AMD A8-3870K Black APU Quad Core Processor and MSI A55M-P33 mATX FM! Motherboard (MoBo CPU bundle)

Later I bought a Crucial SDD for Windows system.

This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU. Unable to boot – please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU

It is a strange error that I encountered installing Centos 6.4 64bit into Virtual Box.

The CPU is AMD A8-3870.  8GB Memory

Host OS is Windows 7 64bit.

VirtualBox is 4.3.6, latest version on Jan 15, 2014.

I have no problem to install Centos x86 version into this VirtualBox. Only when I tried to install the 64bit, the error stops me.

virtualbox-error

The CPU is 64bit. I did enabled the related CPU features in BIOS. I know someone has installation problem of 64bit OS just because of this.

What is the solution of this error?

Folding@home make my CPU run on full speed

It is the screenshot of my CPU clock when running Folding@home v7.2.9.
What is Folding@home?
It is a program running on home computer, working on a the protein folding project. All the computer participated work on one project, and share the work load.
More details to Stanford University project site.
cpu-full-speed

The CPU is AMD A8-3870K. It has integrated DX11-class Radeon HD 6550D GPU core. CPU is 4 cores. Default 3000MHz core speed.
Actually, before I run Folding@home on this desktop, I seldom see the clock or CPU frequencies reaching 3000MHz. Most of time it is only 780MHz.

AMD Readies ‘Fiorano’ Server Platform for 2009

In advance of a major showdown with Intel over the next generation of computing that will pit AMD’s “Shanghai” processor architecture against a rival “Nehalem” offering that Intel has begun touting this week in earnest, AMD is letting it be known that it plans to create its first server platform, code-
named Fiorano, for its processors in 2009. Obviously, Intel currently holds the upper hand, but as the noise level around Shanghai continues to build, it’s clear that AMD is not ready to roll over and play dead just yet, especially when you consider the fact that AMD is now partnering with IBM to
build 22-nanometer technologies.
I have never try AMD server. Maybe 2009, or later.
