I have a dell 1564 laptop with an i5-M430 cpu, running arch linux. For a
long while now I've had issues with very degraded CPU performance if my cpu
temperature is very hot till around ~95 degree Celsius. The problem is that
the degraded cpu performance stays inspite of cooling down back to 60
degrees, and even multiple suspend-resume cycles. The only way to reset the
same is a reboot.
Running on LSi 9260-16i, with 16 SAS drives (Seagate Savvio 15k.2). One drive is getting media read errors, so we're going to RMA it out. Which of these is the least performance destroying option in the meantime until the new drive gets here in a day or two?
Leave the drive in, ignore the media errors, and just swap it out in a week when the new drive arrives.
